Desert Storm veterans gather in Waterloo


Some veterans of Desert Storm gathered in Waterloo Saturday night to reunite 20 years after that conflict.  Nearly 3 dozen former Marines from the Delta Battery based in Waterloo gathered with their families at the Riverloop Expo Plaza for the reunion.   The ceremony featured a dedication of a memorial to the veterans of Desert Storm along with several speakers, food and music.

"We're all together. We all have our good days, we all have our bad days and at the end of the day we have each other. In the service, at the end of the day that's all we have," said keynote speaker, Retired Lt. Cmdr. Charles McDonough.

The memorial will be on display at the Five Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum in Waterloo Tuesday.
