Welcome to the forums, Have you checked out the4 Desert Storm group on Facebook? Rather large membership, you might fond something there as well as checking out on Military.com?

I sent a request to U.S. Army Military History Institute for a PDF or a hard copy. Will let you know how it turns out.

Personal military curiousity. ODS was and is a personal interest of mine.

I gotcha ... I found some good info on the battle and was wondering if some of it might be of use to you, but you probably already have it.

I actually fought with 2nd ACR and 1 ID during the ground war, so it tweaks my interest as well.

**This is a pretty good account.

This link has a number of things one of them is a PDF but not exactly what is being looked for.

I love when the accounts are accurate. I enjoy the actual real documents and hearing what other units were doing while we were doing our own stuff.
