A unit with several hundred Nebraska Army National Guard soldiers officially began its mission in Iraq this week. The Pike brigade is the largest single Nebraska unit to wear a combat patch since World War II. Earlier this week, as part of the NET News "Before the Battle" project, its commander talked by phone from Iraq with Mike Tobias about their mission.
