Several hundred Nebraska Army National Guard soldiers currently serving in Afghanistan have a very different mission. They're more teachers than fighters. Three of these soldiers recently talked by phone with Mike Tobias to offer a taste of this mission.

Visit the website for the NET News "Before the Battle" project to see how these soldiers trained before deployment and info on other missions.
