In January of , the coalition troop build-up in Saudi Arabia had reached upwards of ,, ready to attack the Iraqi forces who had yet to withdraw from Kuwait.
To ensure the Iraqi army would be sufficiently weakened before launching the counter-invasion, the Coalition started a vicious aerial bombardment of Iraq as well as Iraqi forces in Kuwait.
The sustained air campaign from the Coalition targeted Iraqi air-defense systems, communications systems, government buildings, oil fields, and vital bridges and roads.
After just three days of the ground campaign, Kuwait was liberated and on February 27, , Coalition troops stopped attacking Iraqi forces after learning they were to comply with the original United Nations resolution.
April 6, , marked the day that Iraq accepted the terms of a cease-fire agreement and the First Gulf War formally ended.
Some of this payment was not monetary but service-related such as food and transport while United States troops were based in Saudi Arabia.

The heavily loaded Dragon 1 required four passes to determine that there were no obstructions on the airstrip [Note 4] and to align with the runway.
The second and third MCs landed using both runways and discharged the remainder of the Delta soldiers, after which Dragon 1 and 2 took off at to make room for the three ECs and the eight RHDs.
Dragon 1 and 2 were to return to base to allow the crews to prepare for the second-night operations. Soon after the first crews landed and began securing Desert One , a civilian Iranian bus with a driver and 43 passengers was stopped while traveling on the road, which now served as the runway for the aircraft.
The bus was forced to halt by the Rangers and the passengers were detained aboard Republic 3. The truck's passenger was killed, but the driver managed to escape in an accompanying pickup truck.
As the tanker truck was thought to be engaged in clandestine smuggling, the driver was not considered to pose a security threat to the mission.
While en route, RHDs Bluebeard 6 made an emergency landing in the desert, when a sensor indicated a cracked rotor blade. Its crew was picked up by Bluebeard 8.
The remaining helicopters ran into an unexpected weather phenomenon known as a haboob  an enormous, nearly opaque cloud of fine dust.
Bluebeard 5 flew into the haboob, but abandoned the mission and returned to the Nimitz when electrical problems disabled flight instruments and flying without visual references proved impossible.
The remaining six helicopters reached Desert One , 50 to 90 minutes behind schedule. Bluebeard 2 arrived last at Desert One at with a malfunctioning secondary hydraulic system, leaving only one hydraulic system to control the aircraft.
With only five fully serviceable helicopters now remaining to transport the men and equipment to Desert Two minimum of six aircraft was the planned mission's abort threshold , the various commanders reached a stalemate.
Senior helicopter pilot Seiffert refused to use unsafe Bluebeard 2 on the mission, while Beckwith field commander for ground forces refused to consider reducing his trained rescue team's size.
Kyle the field aviation commander , therefore, recommended to Vaught that the mission be aborted. The recommendation was passed on by satellite radio up to the President.
After two and a half hours on the ground, the presidential abort confirmation was received. Fuel consumption calculations showed that the extra 90 minutes idling on the ground waiting for the abort confirmation order had made fuel critical for one of the ECs.
When it became clear that only six helicopters would arrive at Desert One , Kyle had authorized the ECs to transfer 1, US gallons 3, L from the bladders to their own main fuel tanks, but Republic 4 had already expended all of its bladder fuel refueling three of the helicopters and had none to transfer.
To make it to the air tanker refueling track without running out of fuel, it had to leave immediately and was already loaded with part of the Delta team.
In addition, RH Bluebeard 4 needed additional fuel, requiring it to be moved to the opposite side of the road.
To accomplish both actions, Bluebeard 3 piloted by Maj. James Schaefer  had to be moved from directly behind the EC The aircraft could not be moved by ground taxi and had to be moved by hover taxi flying a short distance at low speed and altitude.
As the Controller attempted to back away, Bluebeard 3 's pilot perceived he was drifting backward engulfed in a dust cloud, the pilot only had the Controller as a point of reference and thus attempted to "correct" this situation by applying forward stick to maintain the same distance from the rearward moving marshaller.
In the ensuing explosion and fire, eight servicemen died: five of the fourteen USAF aircrew in the EC, and three of the five USMC aircrew in the RH, with only the helicopter's pilot and co-pilot both badly burned surviving.
The helicopter crews boarded the ECs. Five RH aircraft were left behind mostly intact, some damaged by shrapnel. They could not be destroyed, because they were loaded with ammunition and any fire or explosion would have endangered the Cs.
The ECs carried the remaining forces back to the intermediate airfield at Masirah Island, where two C medical evacuation aircraft from the staging base at Wadi Abu Shihat, Egypt [Note 8] picked up the injured personnel, helicopter crews, Rangers and Delta Force members, and returned to Wadi Kena.
The American bodies were later returned to the United States and buried at various locations across the country. The eight servicemen who died included three Marines Sgt.
