Operation Desert Storm, Iraq - Fallen Brother Perhaps the most iconic image to emerge from Desert Storm was taken by David Turnley, who was aboard this Medevac helicopter when a body bag was brought aboard. The man in the bag had been killed during fighting in the Euphrates Valley, where a Bradley armored vehicle was hit by direct mortar fire. During the firefight, medics quickly grabbed the body of the dead man, not knowing who he was, and evacuated the survivors, which included Sergeant Ken Kozakiewicz, 23, from Buffalo, New York. It was only once Sergeant Kozakiewicz was aboard the helicopter and the dog tags of the corpse were handed to him that he learned that the dead man was his friend, the driver of the Bradley

History: In the picture you can see Kuwait's oil burning away, lit by the leaving Iraqis. The Iraqis came into Kuwait and started ruling the people. They spilled oil into the Persian Gulf, which borders Kuwait. They really hurt the wildlife living there. U.S, Kuwait and Arabic armies fought together to get them out of the country. As the Iraqis left, they lit Kuwait's oil on fire.

Operation Desert Storm, Iraq - The Ground War After several weeks of pounding Saddam with missile strikes, the U.S. and its allies began to move ground units from their positions in Saudi Arabia into Kuwait. On the weekend of February 23-4, tanks and troops cut through the sand berms that Saddam's forces had created as defensive works, beginning what came be known as "The 100-hour War." TIME photographer Christopher Morris traveled with the 1st Marine Division Task Force Ripper, above, which was among the units tasked with taking Kuwait International Airport. Encountering resistance, the Marines flushed out the enemy with a withering barrage of fire from artillery, tanks and Cobra attack helicopters.
