gwh309j.jpg (44333 bytes) Looking up the main road from Kuwait to Iraq. The debris by this time was bulldozed aside to open the road. In the fall of 1991 I saw a magazine photo of this road with the debris completely gone.

gwh309q.jpg (79773 bytes) I didn't think anyone even used pineapple grenades any more.
gwh309k.jpg (103435 bytes) This crater resulted from a shell that killed several Iraqi soldiers.
gwh309i.jpg (93243 bytes) I don't see anything cool about trophy shots of enemy dead. We were warned that the Kuwaitis considered it offensive to photograph dead bodies. This is the only picture I took of enemy casualties.
