Scope and Content Note

Captain Michael D. Roberts was sent to the Gulf theater of operations in January 1991 to observe Navy medical facilities in operation under combat conditions. He remained in the Middle East until 11 March, acquiring documentation relating to the Navy's medical role in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. This collection of files is an excellent source for information on the Fleet Hospital Program, the First and Second Medical Battalions, and other medical aspects of Desert Shield and Desert Storm. The diary/trip report and trip notes of Captain Roberts are especially valuable because they add a personal dimension to the official records.

Scope and Content Note

Captain Larry Douglas, a member of the Naval Reserve Naval Historical Center 0615 Volunteer Training Unit, was recalled by the Naval Historical Center in September 1990. He was assigned temporary duty with the History Office, Headquarters, U.S. Central Command (HQ USCENTCOMICCHO), MacDill Air Force Base, FL.

Captain Douglas gathered a sampling of the extensive collection of operating files that were in use by USCENTCOM. This source material was transferred to the Center's Operational Archives Branch in March of 1991 for retention.

The collection comprises documentation primarily from the period August-October 1990. It is an excellent source for information on the early deployment phase of Operation DESERT SHIELD, maritime interception operations, and sealift. The USCENTCOM files compiled by Captain Douglas are arranged alphabetically by subject and identified as Series I.
