Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Britney Alexander | 4th Aviation Unit, 4th Infantry Division - Army

6:09   |   Unlike wars of the past, Alexander actually had a way to talk to her family back home while she was away at war. She would use Skype and a phone line to talk to her family every so often. During her downtime, she would interact with the Italian Army soldiers, go to the gym, and try to enjoy herself with the people around her. There was one mortar attack in particular that she remembers being really close to their base.
