Operation Southern Watch sleeve regalia - The arm band was a uniform requirement when not on the battlefield as a NATO requirement for identifying soldiers and the countries they represent Leaflets - because the middle east is largely desert land throughout the region, and because of third world living situations, individuals were not communicated with using standard communication methods that we might utilize here in United States. To quickly and nouns and pending attacks or offers of assistance for refugees fleeing the country, C-130 aircraft would drop leaflets all across the country of Iraq and bordering countries to fact we communicate where they need to go or what radio stations they should listen to for more information.

270 S646.jpg"American flag Sidenote, I do have a certificate of authenticity indicating what I detail about this flag however I'm still in the process of looking for it In March 2003, the United States invaded Iraq in an attempt to offer humanitarian assistance to the individuals who were under the misguided leadership of dictator Saddam Hussein. Initially, soldiers commonly flew their flags outside of their tents and at their posted locations, however, within a short period of time we were notified that the flags must come down because we were not invading the country and it was not American territory. American leaders took great consideration in not alarming the people of Iraq with misconceptions in relation to the context of our mission there. However, because this was clearly a huge kick in the gut to troop morale, the Wing Commander authorized the flying of American flags only on July 4 of 2003. Individuals brought their flags to the command post and for periods of just a few minutes each flag was flown. This flag was flown over Baghdad international airport on July 4, 2003. The airport was previously named Saddam Hussein international airport." 7 5026 8.00   ended
271 S647.jpg"Miscellaneous hardware from England In February 2003 we were notified that we had less than 40 hours to ship off. None of us knew where we were going. We flew for nearly 24 hours straight on AC 141, only stopping once in North Canada for refuel in the middle of a blizzard. We ultimately landed in Southern England, on a contingency base named RAF Fairford. Details were still relatively fuzzy at that time but we knew that talks relating to nuclear weapons with leaders throughout the Middle East we're not going well. Essentially, we set in the south of England for about a month waiting for notification of invasion or not. We were stationed with about a dozen B-52s from Minot Air Force Base North Dakota. The people of England are not incredibly fond of the United States and their decision to enter into conflict with Iraq. They were even more upset that the government of England had agreed to cooperate with their NATO partnership with the United States, along with numerous other countries, including Australia. We manned each aircraft with four individuals around the clock. All aircraft were readily arms and ready to go at a moments notice. Throughout our months stay, we became quite familiar with the small villages surrounding the contingency base. And of course we had plenty of time to befriend and further understand the operations of the Royal Air Force and Royal Armies. As it has been customary throughout the centuries, when soldiers of different countries come together for the same purpose, they often trade uniform patches or other insignia. All of the insignia here either came from the Royal Air Force soldiers that I worked alongside or the nations police force. Additionally, there are multiple red tags. These tags are bomb pins. Bomb pins are inserted in the firing pin of a bomb to prevent accidental detonation. Anytime aircraft are on the ground the pens are reinserted. Every time an aircraft would take off for a mission that pins were removed. As soon as the war kicked off, the B-52s took off and ultimately responsible for uprooting and allowing ground forces to invade and overtake the country's capital, Baghdad, Iraq. For approximately three weeks, the aircraft came and went nonstop continually providing air support to ground troops. Every time they came in they required additional bombs and the pins that were pulled were left on the ground. We would pick them up and these were ultimately the pins that were pulled for bombs that were dropped over Iraq during operation Iraq he freedom in 2003. As you can tell, some of the pens are significantly older, as the United States had not found itself in conflict since essentially Vietnam with a minor conflict in the early 90s with Iraq. Relating to the invasion of Kuwait. However because of these to the Cantley large area of land required to overtake Saddam, a large quantity of bombs were utilized and needed and these were the pins that out and we came up with. Watch me through weeks after the start of the work, state declared cease-fire and the B-52s return to North Dakota where as approximately half the troops awaiting with myself in England or for deployed to Baghdad Iraq for additional support in strengthening the newly founded government." 6 5727 10.00   ended
