Actually, the Liberation of Kuwait medal is not an official US Military Medal (or atleast this version isn't). It was given to us by the Kuwaiti government. The US may have adapted a smaller version to fit with the other medals.

My distant relatives have the better medals and stripes.
I was only left with a few things to remember my great grandfather WW1 service.
The shrapnel was pulled out of his back, the hole was the size of a clinched fist.

Enjoy
