While unpacking this morning we came across this little piece of history.
During the invasion in 1990/1991 the US troops would drop warning pamphlets in specific areas, warning the Iraqis to leave the area if they didn’t want to be in harm’s way. They were advised to make their way to the Saudi border where they would be welcome.
This is a photo of the one I own (front and back). It’s obviously worn, old, and covered in droplets of oil from the burning oil fields.
