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.
