In the aftermath of 9/11 President George W. Bush declared a Global War on Terror. Following the invasion of Afghanistan in October, 2001, U.S. forces invaded Iraq, believing president Saddam Hussein sponsored terrorist groups and possessed weapons of mass destruction. As it was in Saint Mihiel, Normandy, the Dominican Republic, and Kuwait, America's Guard of Honor was at the forefront of the initial assault in 2003.
