I thought you all might enjoy my Desert Storm bring-backs. These are three Iraqi I'D booklets AMD I'D cards. One of the Iraqis was carrying this suurender leaflet in his booklet

South of Basrah in the days after the cease fire we found hundreds of these thrown out along the roads. Most of the ones I picked up at the time were Republican Guard officers and NCOs. I guess they didn't want to be caught with anything connecting them to leadership in the Republican Guard.

Those are passports not identification cards for military. Military I.D. cards are singular and the pictures are of the soldiers in uniform. Very nice bring backs and the picture is great! Scott

Really interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing and thanks for your service! I am reading a book right now about the first US navy pilot to be shot down in the Gulf War.
