Norman Schwarzkopf massed troops just south of Kuwait, tricking Iraq into expecting a massive frontal assault. Allied bombing knocked out Iraq ' s Air Force, allowing troops secretly to shift west along Iraq ' s undefended border in preparation for a flanking maneuver. As the ground war started, Saudi and U.S. troo ps pushed into Kuwait and feigned a main assault, while the XVIII Corps in the west " leapfrogged " into Iraq, setting up huge fuel and supply stations. The 101st Airborne raced within 100 miles of Baghdad to block retreating Iraqis and the VII Corps and Pan- Arab forces led ground assaults into Iraq and Kuwait. As the threat of a Marine amphibious assault kept enemy troops pinned down in Kuwait, allied forces from the west destroyed the outflanked Republican Guard. Pan-Arab forces moved into Kuwait City, overwhelming Iraqi troops.

In recognition of their superior ser- vice provided the crew, they were awarded the Best Ship ' s Store and Service Award. The DKs keep track of everyone ' s pay and many of the accounting needs of the ship. Their motto is; " Think DDS! " The Supply Department is a vital cog in the wheel that is GERMANTOWN.

Was it worth it to keep all anti-armor assets in one platoon or better to attach them out? We showed that the former is best. We ac- complished many missions and paved the way for others to follow. It was my pleasure to lead the men of Anti-Armor PLT. They are the ones that made the beast work. My thanks and gratitude goes out to the marines of A. A. PLT, WPNS CO., 3 1 . 1st Lt. Seagrist.
