LT. COL. Roger Edwards, Commander of the 314th TALCE, Little Rock AFB, Ark, brief newly arrived troops about their mission. Their mission is to assist refugees who entered Zaire in a massive surge to flee the civil war in Rwanda. The US military flew in vital water purification equipment and relief cargos to help the Rwandans. An estimated 2000 refugees die daily because of the cholera epidemic.

NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
