A Ceremonial Remembrance Wreath was laid in memory of the 300 service personnel who were lost during the 42 days of the conflict to liberate Kuwait from Iraq.

The Ceremony was held at the Shoreline Veterans Recognition Plaza, next to Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N. 

The Ceremonial Wreath remained in place through Sunday, February 28, 2021.
