Audio: C-IED Schoolhouse Story 2 of 5 SHORT Version 1:59
Audio by Rick Haverinen
The improvised explosive device is a principal concern for U.S. and partner nation forces operating in Iraq and Afghanistan. Training to counter the IED threat can range from furthering cultural awareness, and improving relationships with members of host nations where coalition service members are operating; to learning what signs to look for, when the IED threat already exists. Rick Haverinen has the story. The next story in the series visits live situational training for officers, and simulation convoy exercises for NCO convoy commanders, at the U.S. Army Transportation School; plus we’ll see how real-life battle incidents become training simulations at the Joint Training Counter-IED Operations Integration Center.
