Soldiers train for decisive action

 

Written by Staff Sgt. Christopher Klutts
20th Public Affairs Detachment

US Army Special Operations CommandFort Polk, LA – An American man has a heart attack on the third floor of a hotel that doubles as an evacuee holding area. Protestors chant for change outside a U.S. consulate. A small village is struck with measles and enemy artillery rocks a city – all of this happens between lunch and dinner.

By design, training scenarios are complex at the Joint Readiness Training Center in Fort Polk, LA. Hundreds of role-players assume fake identities and mill around a mock foreign country. Its landscape is dotted with towns and villages, the names of which change based on the real-world region a unit might operate in.
