      Gulf War veterans to be honored

      If you're a veteran, or you know a veteran of the Gulf War, you may want to head to Springfield at the end of the month.

      The Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs will hold a ceremony to honor those who served in the 1991 Gulf War.

      The event will take place Feb. 28 at the Illinois State Military Museum in Springfield and starts at 11 a.m.

      Veterans Affairs Director Erica Borggren will speak at the event.

      The museum tells the story of the Illinois National Guard.

      U.S. forces were part of a coalition that ousted Iraqi troops from Kuwait in the 1990-91 Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield.
