Bosnia Diary

Unlike the Gulf War, activities in Bosnia didn't break down into well-defined modules. Each week, once we settled in, had us going to Brigade Data Dump on Sunday, to Vlasenica and Milici on Monday, Sekovici on Wednesday, Stupari or some other location on Friday, and foot patrols into Kladanj on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, but with a lot of variations. Titles of segments relate to some interesting incident during each period, but don't reflect the whole content of that period by any means.
