More than 650,000 U.S. military personnel took part in the operations, which collectively lasted from Aug. 2, 1990, to July 31, 1991. For the purposes of benefits eligibility through the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Gulf War period is still in effect—meaning anyone who served on active duty from Aug. 2, 1990, to present is considered a Gulf War-era veteran.
