When Saddam Hussein's Iraq invaded Kuwait in August 1990, triggering the First Gulf War, a coalition of thirty-five countries led by the United States responded with Operation Desert Storm, which culminated in a one-hundred-hour coordinated air strike and ground assault that repelled Iraqi forces from Kuwait. Though largely forgotten in descriptions of the war, an eight-day barrage of artillery fire made this seemingly rapid offensive possible. At the forefront of this offensive were the brav.

Col. L. Scott Lingamfelter, USA (Ret.), began his twenty-eight-year military career as a field artilleryman where he progressed in rank to colonel. He served in the Virginia House of Delegates from 2002 to 2018. His commentaries have been published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch and the Washington Times.
