lived there for about three years. (Later divorced, now back in the states.)
I don't remember the city name, but it is close to the Kuwait border.
(Durhan? During Desert Storm, a US scud missile went off course and hit
about two miles from her ex-husband's house.)

Perhaps I am uninformed, but I don't think the US launched any SCUD
missiles.  Iraq fired forty-something of them each at Israel and Saudi
Arabia, however. (Maybe you are thinking of the Patriot missiles, which were
designed to intercept the SCUDs.)
