Well, the troop's role is to provide communications to all UN elements. All UN elements come to our troop location, give us their messages, and we'd send it down the road. Our com went in to Battambang, which was to the south, first in Battambang and into Phnom Penh. That's the troops job.

Outside of us, we had Pailin Det and we had three Charlie Tango, CT locations, was Cambodia, Thailand. We had border cross checkpoints with supporting UNMO teams. Then around Christmas they switched it and they did this big rotation, so we had to pick up two more Northern Dets. We lost Pailin and we picked up two more CTs. CTs were individual soldiers with just a radio and a backpack sitting out in the bush, sending voice messaging into us. Then we'd type it up and send it down through the Rat, which sounds like a lot, but it's not. It's pretty simple.
