Roster of the Desert Storm Gunners

 

DESERT STORM GUNNERS ROSTER

We are attempting over time to compile a list of all soldiers who served in the Gunner Battalion during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. The roster to date is far from complete, and we need any input we can get. If you served with the Gunners, take a look at your battery or fire support element (FSE). If you see errors or omissions, please at the contact email address at the bottom of this page. Also, if possible please dig out your awards orders and mail copies to us. Most of these orders have multiple names on them, sorted first alphabetically and then by battery. We need those names to finish the unit roster and build an archive for those who lose their orders.

We have broken the battalion down by batteries and FSE’s. The rosters are by no means perfect, and not all names are confirmed. Much of what you see is based on the memories of the handful of Gunners we’ve spoken with over the past couple of years; some information comes from Bronze Star Medal, Army Commendation Medal, and Army Achievement Medal orders.

Note: some Battalion Headquarters personnel may be listed under HHB or Service Battery (and vice versa) depending on position. Also, fire support personnel without an identified FSE affiliation are listed at the end of the Brigade FSE list. Keep in mind that the list by no means complete or fully accurate. Some soldiers may be listed under the wrong battery. Sometime in the future, we will also create an alphabetical listing of the battalion for cross-referencing.
