    U.S. Air Force Reserve air mobility units provided critical mission support during the Gulf War, helping ensure a swift and decisive liberation of Kuwait from Iraqi invaders. The 328th Tactical Airlift Squadron, Niagara Falls, NY, provided cargo and personnel transport utilizing the C-130E Hercules after the Battle of Kuwait International Airport, the fastest and largest Marine tank battle in history, on Feb. 27, 1991.Throughout their deployment, 328th Citizen Airmen also transported Explosive Ordnance and Disposal Teams, vehicles and supplies in and out of the airport. In support of Gulf War operations from Oct. 4, 1990 to April 11, 1991, 84 members of the 328th TAS were mobilized. They received the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award for the period of July 1, 1989-June 30, 1991. The 328th TAS has since been redesignated at the 328th Refueling Squadron, part of the 914th Operations Group, Niagara Falls, NY. (U.S. Air Force Graphic by Tech. Sgt. Kat Justen)
