Made a little tribute video to the French forces of Operation Daguet. Feel free to post anything relevant to the Gulf War to honour all who served to liberate a nation.

Was in grade 6 and CNN had just come I think. It was all too exciting for a 12yr old to see live pictures of war and see those mean machines pound the iraqi forces.

These units have been phased out of the army now we were a part of the 44th medical brigade. Unlike the show many personnel were moved around often and performed many duties that were not traditional military roles. One thing I remember is special kits called mark 1 were ordered in case of an expected chemical attack from Saddam's stockpile of sarin came,making sure all the soldiers had access to them and contingency plans if it was a big attack,this was a monumental task that most people will never know about. Along with instructing soldiers about their correct use, in a chemical attack if they were exposed they had 3 minutes to use them correctly to save themselves.
