Remembering the Desert Storm War, this Operation Desert Storm pin exhibits the powerful M1A1 tank revealing a stunning presentation of the United States flag attached to the side of the tank. The pin’s shape resembles a military patch signifying the many people defending Kuwait’s position within the Arab world.
Iraq objected to Kuwait joining the Arab Nation and forming its own constitution. It was thought that Kuwait should have stayed part of the Iraqi territory. Saddam Hussein, dictator of Iraq, wanted to gain back the lost land for Iraq. Hence, the fighting began on the ground and eventually in the air. Over 500,000 American soldiers and smaller troops from Britain, France, Germany, Soviet Union, Japan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia were deployed to assist Kuwait in a military attack against Iraq. One weapon, among others, that the United States used on the ground was a M1A1 tank.
