With the peal of brass bands and the roar of jets, Orange County on Saturday welcomed home the troops of Operation Desert Storm with a victory parade that drew an estimated 200,000 flag-waving and cheering spectators. As more than 3,000 Marines marched by in formation or rolled past atop burly tanks and assault vehicles, an enthusiastic crowd lining the tree-studded, 1.2-mile parade route showered the troops with applause, shouted thanks or chanted "U.S.A.! U.S.A.!"

When I first saw John Seitz, the grayed and stocky electronics teacher was struggling to reach double digits in a sit-ups drill at a Fort Ord training field as fellow Army reservists half his age cheered him on. The drill over, his brown military T-shirt soaked, he hopped up from the ground and lined up for the next exercise, yelling: "Over 50 years, over here!" There were no takers.

Already, you can hear them in watering holes and pool halls, in base commissaries and officers' clubs, at supper tables and in chapel services. They are the war stories: the tales of flying shrapnel, of sand and scorpions, of endless hours of boredom and of brief, flashing moments of peril and heroism. And mostly, the tales of victory.
