Twenty years ago, the United States and a coalition of other nations took part in a military conflict known as Desert shield/Desert Storm. Where were you?

The Otter Tail County Historical Society invites the public to attend the monthly Military Roundtable at noon Monday, at the Historical Museum in Fergus Falls. Discussion will focus on the events surrounding the first invasion of Iraq in 1991.

A Department of Defense timeline of actions leading up to and during Desert Storm will be available.

Some Desert Shield/Desert Storm veterans of Otter Tail County will also be featured.

Join us as we reflect on the anniversary of the first major conflict after the Cold War.

Participants are welcome to bring a lunch. For more information, call 218-736-6038 or email
