Photograph article dated May 27, 1964 partially reads, "How do you cross a rushing river without using the bridges? Turn off the water. That is precisely what Maj. Gen. Edwin H. Burba, commander of the invading 2nd Armored Division, did in the current 100,000-man Desert Strike war games. Knowing that the obvious crossings and bridges would be guarded by heavy defenses, Gen. Burba sent a force to Parker Dam and closed the flood gates. In three hours, the level of the river was low enough for the tanks to roll across."; See images #00114315 through #00114321 for all photos in this series.
