Nebraskans at War in Iraq - Part One
(2007-04-20)
(NET Radio) - These days the National Guard has a much different role than the stereotyped "weekend warriors" of old. There's no better example than Troop A of Nebraska's 1st Squadron, 167th Cavalry. These soldiers were the first Nebraska Army National Guard Unit deployed for a combat mission since World War 2. NET Television's Mike Tobias spent long hours with these soldiers during their training and after their return from Iraq last summer. His documentary, "On the Frontline: Nebraskans at War in Iraq" airs on Monday, April 23rd at 9pm on NET 1. Tobias prepared this preview for NET Radio.

Be sure to join us Monday morning for part two of our series, as the Nebraska soldiers describe life in Ramadi, and what it was like to be away from home. And then tune to NET Television Monday night at 9 Central Time to see Mike Tobias's complete documentary On the Frontline, Nebraskans at War in Iraq.
