REMARKS: OPERATION DESERT STORM
SYNOPSIS: The Pentagon released the name, rank and branch of service of
Capt. Richard D. Storr at the end of January, 1991. No further information
was released. Storr was Missing in Action.
It was later learned that Storr was the pilot of an A10 Thunderbolt
"Warthog" aircraft. The "Warthog" is a close-air-support aircraft originally
designed as a tank killer. The missions assigned to the A10 require them to
fly low, making them vulnerable to anti-aircraft fire.
On March 6, 1991, Dale Storr was released in a group of 15 American POWs.
The group had apparently been held near an intelligence complex at Basra.
