Photos of Our Camp from Desert Storm
My computer failed in December, and I ended up paying to recover files from it. Some of these were scanned in photos from Desert Storm. These were taken in January, 1991, when we were 43 miles (!) from the border of Kuwait. I was told at the time it was 70km, which sounded a whole lot better.
The first one was our battalion. You can see how flat and devoid of landmarks it is. One day, one of the companies packed up and left. That night, when I came out of the latrine, I was disoriented for a few minutes because the tent landmarks were gone!
This was our supply tents, or rather tents. At this point during the war, they moved it out of the living quarters and used three small tents tied together. I called it “Triple Peak Supply.”
Except for our time at Cabin Village and then at Eskon Village, this was pretty much our living conditions while we were there. Can you imagine living in a tent for six months?
