The photographer writes:
Top Photo: "After hostilities ended, 3rd Armored
settled in just south of the Iraqi border, near the town of Safwan,
Iraq. It was here that General Norman Swarzkopf accepted the
defeat of Iraqi forces and set conditions that Saddam has been
chafing at ever since. It was also here that Iraqis, who had
attempted to oust Saddam Hussien from power, fled when their
attempt failed. The Red Cross established a large refugee camp
just south of Safwan, and it quickly filled with refugee families.
As in most conflicts, the American soldiers quickly layed down
their arms and became humanitarians, aiding however and whenever
he or she could. The refugee problem was solved when Saudi Arabia
agreed to re-settle the refugees in their country. In this photo,
refugees, who have been bussed from the camp to Safwan Airfield,
are processed through the American and Red Cross offices before
boarding American C-130 transports."
