Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Mike Pickrel | 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division - Army

6:44   |   You learned the little things that helped you spot IED's. Mike Pickrel tells how he looked for them and how the Surge never really made it to where he was. No more boots on the ground there. He chafed at partnering with former insurgents and was angry when he finally got a chance to engage in a real firefight, but was withdrawn.
