Two Veterans Reflect on Operation Desert Storm
On Jan. 16/17, 1991, American forces launched air and missile attacks on Iraqi and Kuwaiti targets, signifying the beginning of Operation Desert Storm. To commemorate the 20th anniversary, I spoke with veterans Frank Molinario (U.S. Air Force) and Joseph Chapman (U.S. Army), about their reflections on the war. Molinario served as a loadmaster on C-141B aircraft (airman) during Operation Desert Storm and is now a human resources generalist in Hobart, N.Y. Chapman was a wrecker specialist and quick reaction team leader (private second class) and continues to serve as an Army staff sergeant at Fort Drum, N.Y.
