Yellow ribbons began appearing in large numbers after the Gulf War when the U.S. began sending large numbers of troops overseas to the Middle East. For a long time ribbons have been kept as a symbol of remembrance of men and women who served in places far from home. They have been kept especially by wives, mothers and sisters in times of war in memory of their soldier boys abroad.
