Realistic training yields real results for Civil Affairs
U.S. Army Soldiers from the 426th Civil Affairs Battalion, 351st Civil Affairs Command, USACAPOC, move through a village during a comprehensive simulated training exercise designed to test their 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. After the team assessed the village, they briefed their command on the information they gathered, highlighted assets and needs, voiced potential concerns, and made recommendations. They then made plans to contact and engage with local leaders, such as village elders, business owners and religious leaders, to start building relationships and further determine courses
