Uganda: June 19, 2003


After ordering helicopter gunships to attack LRA-occupied areas in Katakwi the evening before, the 3rd Division commander requested reinforcements to deal with the increased threat in his area of operations. While he considered the 19th Battalion a very good unit, they just didn't have enough troops to properly pursue the rebels. The LRA launched their attack in Katakwi on the morning of 16 June. - Adam Geibel
