In 1991, the Roland Company collaborated with the U.S. Naval Institute in producing the documentary film "Storm From the Sea," which featured extensive interviews with many of the key players in Operation Desert Storm. It was the first truly inside, in-depth look at that still-recent war to be presented to general audiences. Only a minor portion of the stories told by these men was used in the completed film, leaving unused a trove of valuable material for historians and others interested in the Gulf War. The transcripts of these interviews provide a moment-in-time personal snapshot of a consequential military event—when all the memories were very recent and very fresh. The Roland Company has graciously donated these unedited and unfiltered firsthand accounts to the U.S. Naval Institute Memoir Collection. They are presented here for the first time to the public. In this interview, Captain Richard Reass provides perspective from the vantage of the USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) battle group.
