Realistic training yields real results for Civil Affairs
U.S. Army Soldiers from the 426th Civil Affairs Battalion, 351st Civil Affairs Command, USACAPOC, discuss operational orders and role player scripts during a comprehensive simulated training exercise designed to test civil affairs teams’ ability to assess a village and engage key leaders August 27, 2022, in Junction City, a part of the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif. Role players, dressed in garb and armed with elaborate scripts designed to challenge their peers, moved throughout the large village of Unjen (Junction City) and set up shop in buildings that mimicked an internet cafe, mosque, hotel and school, in order to provide the teams with realistic engagements and unique problems to solve that would mimic a real-world mission.
