What It's About
On August 2nd, 1990, Iraqi troops under Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. Most of the Arab League and the UN Security Council condemned the invasion. Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd and Kuwait’s Emir Jabber III requested assistance from the United States and other NATO nations against Saddam’s aggression. With no indication Saddam will withdraw his troops before the January 15, 1991 deadline, US troops arrive in Saudi Arabia, including the Air Force 23rd Tactical Fighter Wing under the command of then-Colonel David Sawyer.
Based on the journal of the late Maj. Gen. David Sawyer, Tiger on the Storm honors the 23rd Tactical Fighter Wing and their service in Operation: Desert Storm.
