As we reflect back on Desert Storm and all those who served 30 years ago, let us take a moment to pause and remember the fallen. Below are names of 32 service members who were killed in action and buried in VA’s national cemeteries. People can visit their virtual memorial by clicking on their name.

The National Cemetery Administration provides a virtual memorial for all Veterans and service members who are interred in a national cemetery. The Veterans Legacy Memorial serves as a way for people to virtually visit the graves of our interred.

Please join us in honoring them by visiting their memorial, leaving a tribute, a memory, or a story.
