I have tried to put together a time line showing the different
time periods when the United States went to war and a little
back ground about each one. Through our life we are taught
very little about the wars that the U.S. was involved in and
what we are taught comes from books written by the "victor".
The time line will run from the American Revolution (1775-
1781) up to the Gulf War (1991). Those of you that were in-
volved in any of the later wars may remember things differently
than what you read here. Please keep in mind that the American
people only know what they have read, seen on TV, or been
taught in school. If you read something and would like to
comment or share your experience, please feel free to do so. You
can by signing the guest book, or leave a message on the message
board on the last page. As always, please remember those that
served our country. Many of them gave their life. For those that
are still with us, my thanks, thoughts, and prayers go to you.
