This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Desert Storm/Desert Shield. A war in the Middle East that lasted only 100 hours, Americans mobilized massive machinery and new technology to remove Saddam Hussein’s Army from neighboring Kuwait.

Army Veteran Steve Fixler has “driven nearly every tank at Cantigny” during his 25 years in the military. Most notably, Fixler was in the Middle East during Desert Storm/ Desert Shield. Speaking about his experience in the military, Steve shares his stories and his experience as a veteran of Desert Storm and Desert Shield.

For those who want to make our at-home treat, please have available:

  • Vanilla sandwich cookies OR Nilla wafers
  • 1 box vanilla instant pudding
  • milk
  • 1 large ziplock bag
