Dateline: On Patrol in Kosovo - 2002-03-13

Some of the 35,000 NATO soldiers stationed in the Yugoslav province of Kosovo are getting ready to go on patrol. They have been there since 1999, following the bloody ethnic war between Serbs and Albanians. Their main mission is to provide a safe and secure environment and to help unravel centuries of ethnic strife so two peoples can learn to live together.

In this special Dateline report, David Sommerstein goes on patrol with the members of the U.S. Army's Tenth Mountain Division, which took command of the American sector of Kosovo last November.
