The article examines the military maneuver Operation Desert Storm in commemoration of its 20th anniversary. The initial shortcomings of the Army are examined including sending initial forces that were too light and too vulnerable, costly precision guided munitions (PGM), and troubling logistics. Post-operation corrective measures are elaborated including upgrading prepositions, improved precision guided munitions, and investment in technologies. The legacy of Desert Storm as seen by the improved operation during Operation Iraqi Freedom is also discussed.
