Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Brooks Tucker | 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment - Marines

10:24   |   The Marines were lined up on the Saudi side of the Kuwait border. There were bands of mine fields on the other side and Brooks Tucker had to wait impatiently as the engineers cleared the ordnance. This gave the Iraqis a chance to lob some poorly aimed shells their way. The young platoon leader and his men had to go to chemical warfare posture, including full body suits, after an alarm was sounded.
