At 0030 hours (12:30 AM) Saturday, 23 February 1991, Lieutenant Colonel Terry W. Branham's 2/6 Cavalry AH-64A Apache Helicopter Squadron received the order to attack/feint, up the Wadi Al Batin. This initiated Operation Desert Storm and fooled the Iraqi army into believing the misinformation broadcast, unknowingly, by CNN News...that our main effort would be up the Wadi separating Kuwait from Iraq.

Branham's 18 AH-64A Apache attack helicopter squadron had been, early in February 1991, tasked with the mission of convincing the Iraqi forces that our main assault, in the event Operation Desert Storm started, would be up the Wadi Al Batin...north from the Saudi Arabian border. It worked extremely well, as our helicopters penetrated deep into Iraq, destroying everything in their path with cannon and Hellfire missiles. U.S. Army Field Artillery (MLRS) Multiple Launch Rocket System rockets struck targets ahead of the Apache choppers, as they worked their way up the Wadi.

This facilitated the 7th Corps Armored Divisions' devastating "left hook" assault from the west, across the desert and deep into Iraqi territory...Iraq's Army surrendered in 100 hours.
