Never Vounteer, April 17, 1991

Dhahran, April 20, 1991

Saddle Up, April 24, 1991

Gulf War Image In case you're wondering why there are no pictures for several days, the answer is simple. I was sick as a dog. We waited in this quonset hut, except that by midmorning it was a furnace inside.
Gulf War Image We finally loaded up in the late afternoon.

For some reason these pictures were badly over-exposed. Baking in 115-degree heat all day probably didn't help the film one bit.

The crew on a C-5A actually have small compartments.

Incirlik, April 25, 1991

Gulf War Image Three weeks ago, we were still in Kuwait. This is the gym at Incirlik, where the showers were luxurious
Gulf War Image We were billeted in the base elementary school for the two nights we spent here.

The Sultan's Inn, the mess hall (below), was a delight.
