Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Michael Trost | 489th Civil Affairs Battalion - Army

4:49   |   The business of a civil affairs unit is trying to win the hearts and minds of a local populace. You have to deal with a lot of things that aren't in the book. Michael Trost had a great team with him in Afghanistan but it was tough in a tribal society. Finding humor in the daily grind provided a little relief, like the trouble he had with a containerized housing unit, or CHU, which housed the showers.
