Coming Tuesday, Part 2 of the series Battalion 745

The story of Battalion 745's withdrawal from East Timor begins in early September in Los Palos, the biggest town in the eastern part of the territory and the unit's headquarters. Some people in and around Los Palos will never forget what they lost after they won the vote for independence: brothers, husbands, and sons.
