Beasley: CCATF was in Kuwait to support the officials of the Kuwaiti government.
Once we arrived in Kuwait City, I left the Islamic division and rejoined the headquarters of the CCATF .
Davidson: CCATF's mission was to reconstitute essential services-sanitation, water, and electric power-as well as municipal services, such as police protection, traffic control, crowd control, fire services, and rudimentary telecommunication services along with plans to reopen the schools.
Davidson: CCATF was composed of reservists and active-duty soldiers with expertise in specialties, such as power plant engineering, sewage engineering, systems engineering, management, and telecommunications.
I recall some CCATF specialists in bomb removal spending virtually all their time clearing facilities looking for traps.
In southern Iraq near Safwan, however, where subordinate units of the CCATF administered refugee camps, there were some problems with typhus.
Davidson: The press sought out CCATF members for interviews because we were in the middle of the action of interest to the media.
