The U.S. Army’s 4th Security Force Assistance Brigade arrived at the Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) to prepare for their deployment to Afghanistan in the next few months.
The Center, which was closed during the pandemic, will factor in the effects of COVDI-19 in their training.
Along with mitigation measures, planners have built COVID-19 scenarios such as what to do if a key leader or soldier with a specialised skillset gets infected.
The men will be taught how to restructure their chain of command, quarantine the infected person in such a way that still allows the brigade to maintain their communications.
All the soldiers of 4thSFAB have been screened at tested before the start of the training.
