Desert Storm 25 Years Later

As Operation Desert Storm coalition forces advanced into Kuwait, the Iraqi military forces set fire to hundreds of oil wells as they retreated in January and February 1991. Then 20-year-old Airman 1st Class Jay Latham was a weather observer assigned to King Fahd Air Base, Dharan, Saudi Arabia, and took frequent weather observations during this time, especially prior to the launching of F-16 Falcons and A-10 Thunderbolt IIs. Latham is now a senior master sergeant in the Air Force Reserve assigned to the 403rd Wing's 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron at Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi. (Courtesy photo)
