In January 1991, on the second day of Desert Storm’s “Shock & Awe” campaign, Lt Col Jeff Tice’s F-16 was hit by an Iraqi surface to air missile. He would become one of 23 U.S. prisoners of war from that conflict.
We are honored to have Lt Col Tice share his story with Marines’ Memorial on September 8th during our first in-person event of 2021. We hope you can join us for Lt Col Tice’s riveting presentation.
