Standards: Maintain accountability and control of the detainees. Ensure that detainees remain silent and segregated. Protect detainees from abuse and harm. Follow the ROE/RUF during escape attempts. Correct and report inappropriate treatment and detainee noncompliance to your supervisor.
Conditions: Given your individual equipment, assigned weapon, an interpreter (when available), the rules of engagement (ROE) or rules for the use of force (RUF), cloth.
Standards: Maintain accountability and control of the detainees. Ensure that detainees remain silent and segregated. Protect detainees from abuse and harm. Follow the ROE/RUF during escape attempts. Correct and report inappropriate treatment and detainee noncompliance to your supervisor.
Performance Steps:
Note: Always maintain positive control and accountability of the detainees.
1. Ensure that your weapons are functional, loaded, and prepared for use, if needed.
2. Position yourself and stay alert. Note: If a detainee has not already been searched and restrained, notify your supervisor.
a. Remain close enough to maintain positive control, but far enough away to allow defensive reaction time.
b. Face the detainees, observe everything in their line of sight, and report all incidents the supervisor.
c. Ensure that you understand mutually-supported sectors of fire, communications, and battle drills when positioned with others. If you do not, ask your supervisor for clarification.
d. Observe and report detainee behavior. For example-
(1) Detainee speaks fluent English during a medical exam, but feigns no knowledge of English whatsoever during interrogation.
(2) Detainee demonstrates leadership by providing instructions to other detainees.
Note: This passive intelligence collection is critical during law enforcement, medical, and intelligence processing.
3. Ensure that detainees remain silent.
a. Do not speak to detainees unless providing orders and/or instructions. Use an interpreter if available. Answer necessary questions, but do not answer personal questions or questions that may compromise or hinder the mission.
b. Attempt to stop unauthorized communication with other detainees using language (an interpreter) and/or and signals if a detainee attempts it.
c. Report the individual to your supervisor if he continues and segregate or muffle him as appropriate according to unit SOPs and your supervisor's instructions.
(1) Muffle the detainee using a soft, clean cloth stretched across the mouth and around the back of the head.
(2) Do not place items in his mouth, hood him, or use tape or other adhesives.
(3) Do not harm the detainee or affect his ability to breathe.
(4) Check the detainee periodically to ensure that he is not harmed.
(5) Muffle the detainee only for as long as needed.
4. Ensure that detainees remain segregated. If a detainee attempts to move out of a designated area or advances on a guard-
a. Attempt to use language (an interpreter) or hand signals to stop the behavior. b. React according to published ROE/RUF and notify your supervisor if the detainee continues.
5. Safeguard the detainees.
a. Correct, report, and document incidents of inhumane treatment, abuse, or inappropriate conditions.
Note: Acts and or omissions that constitute inhumane treatment are violations of the law of armed conflict, and as such must be corrected immediately. Simply reporting violations is insufficient. If a violation is ongoing, every Soldier has an obligation to stop the violation as well as report it.
b. Document allegations of abuse and other incidents in DA Form 1594 by providing information to your supervisor.
c. Protect detainees from combat hazards and conflict with each other. Protect detainees from the civilian populace, public curiosity, improper treatment or care, and any emergency situation according to unit SOPs.
d. Protect women and children from any form of sexual abuse or harassment.
e. Do not videotape or photograph detainees except for administrative purposes (for example, documenting in personnel, intelligence, investigative, or medical files).
6. Respond to escape attempts.
a. React to an escape according to rehearsed battle drills and SOPs.
(1) Allow the Soldiers and/or guards closest to the escapee to recover the detainee.
(2) Remain focused on the detainees if you are not involved in the recovery of the escape.
CAUTION Remaining detainees will attempt to exploit an escape, as they will any disruption.
b. Adhere to local ROE/RUF.
c. Maintain situational awareness.
d. Apply the minimum level of force to regain control of detainees. Do not fire on detainees still contained within the wire.
e. Segregate those who attempt escape to prevent reoccurrence and their ability to influence other detainees.
f. Assess escapes thoroughly to prevent future occurrences.
g. Follow the ROE/rules for the use of force (normally the following). Use an interpreter, if available.
(1) Order detainee to halt in his native language, when possible. Repeat the order twice (for a total of three "Halt" commands) if the detainee does not stop after the first order.
(2) If detainee stops by the third order:
(a) Allow Soldiers closest to the escapee to recover the detainee.
(b) Maintain security.
(3) If the detainee does not stop:
(a) Use minimum force necessary to prevent escape or recapture an escapee. Use of individual weapon is a last resort.
(b) Allow Soldiers closest to the escapee to recover the escapee and maintain security.
CAUTION If a detainee is shot or wounded ensure that proper medical attention is provided.

081-831-1001 - Evaluate a Casualty (Tactical Combat Casualty Care)
Evaluate the casualty following the correct sequence. Identify all life-threatening conditions and other serious wounds
Conditions: You have a casualty who has signs/symptoms of an injury. Your unit may be under fire.
Standards: Evaluate the casualty following the correct sequence. Identify all life-threatening conditions and other serious wounds.
Performance Steps:
Note: Tactical combat casualty care (TCCC) can be divided into three phases. The first is care under fire; the second is tactical field care; the third is combat casualty evacuation care. In the first, you are under hostile fire and are very limited as to the care you can provide. In the second, you and the casualty are relatively safe and no longer under effective hostile fire, and you are free to provide casualty care to the best of your ability. In the third, the care is rendered during casualty evacuation (CASEVAC).
Warning: If a broken neck or back is suspected, do not move the casualty unless to save his/her life.
1. Perform care under fire.
a. Return fire as directed or required before providing medical treatment.
b. Determine if the casualty is alive or dead.
Note: In combat, the most likely threat to the casualty's life is from bleeding. Attempts to check for airway and breathing will expose the rescuer to enemy fire. Do not attempt to provide first aid if your own life is in imminent danger.
Note: In a combat situation, if you find a casualty with no signs of life-no pulse, no breathing-do NOT attempt to restore the airway. Do NOT continue first aid measures.
c. Provide tactical care to the live casualty.
Note: Reducing or eliminating enemy fire may be more important to the casualty's survival than the treatment you can provide.
(1) Suppress enemy fire.
(2) Use cover or concealment (smoke).
(3) Direct the casualty to return fire, move to cover, and administer self-aid (stop bleeding), if possible. If the casualty is unable to move and you are unable to move the casualty to cover and the casualty is still under direct enemy fire, have the casualty "play dead."
(4) If the casualty is unresponsive, move the casualty, his/her weapon, and mission-essential equipment to cover, as the tactical situation permits.
(5) Keep the casualty from sustaining additional wounds.
(6) Reassure the casualty.
d. Administer life-saving hemorrhage control.
(1) Determine the relative threat of the tactical situation versus the risk of the casualty's bleeding to death.
(2) If the casualty has severe bleeding from a limb or has suffered amputation of a limb, administer life-saving hemorrhage control by applying a tourniquet before moving the casualty. (See task 081 -831-1032.)
e. Transport the casualty, his/her weapon, and mission-essential equipment when the tactical situation permits.
f. Recheck bleeding control measures as the tactical situation permits.
2. Perform tactical field care when no longer under direct enemy fire.
Note: Tactical field care is rendered by the individual when no longer under hostile fire. Tactical field care also applies to situations in which an injury has occurred during the mission but there has been no hostile fire. Available medical equipment is limited to that carried into the field by the individual Soldier.
Warning: If there are any signs of nerve agent poisoning, stop the evaluation, take the necessary NBC protective measures, and begin first aid. (See task 081-831-1 044. )
Note: In the following situations communicate the medical situation to the unit leader and ensure that the tactical situation allows for time to perform these steps before initiating any medical procedure.
Note: When evaluating and/or treating a casualty, seek medical aid as soon as possible. Do NOT stop treatment; but, if the situation allows, send another person to find medical aid.
a. Form a general impression of the casualty as you approach (extent of injuries, chance of survival).
Note: If a casualty is being burned, take steps to remove the casualty from the source of the burns before continuing evaluation and treatment. (See task 081-831-1007.)
b. Check for responsiveness.
(1) Ask in a loud, but calm, voice: "Are you okay?" Gently shake or tap the casualty on the shoulder.
(2) Determine level of consciousness by using AVPU: A = Alert; V = responds to Voice; P = responds to Pain; U = Unresponsive.
Note: To check a casualty's response to pain, rub the breastbone briskly with a knuckle or squeeze the first or second toe over the toenail.
(3) If the casualty is conscious, ask where his/her body feels different than usual, or where it hurts. Go to step 2e. If the casualty is conscious but is choking and cannot talk, stop the evaluation and begin treatment. (See task 081-831-1003.)
(4) If the casualty is unconscious, continue with step 2c.
c. Position the casualty and open the airway. (See task 081-831 - 1023.)
d. Assess for breathing and chest injuries.
(1) Look, listen, and feel for respiration. (See task 081-831-1023.)
Note: If the casualty is breathing, insert a nasopharyngeal airway (see task 081 -831-1023) and place the casualty in the recovery position.
Note: On the battlefield the cost of attempting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on casualties with what are inevitably fatal injuries may result in additional lives lost as care is diverted from casualties with less severe injuries. Only in the case of nontraumatic disorders such as hypothermia, near drowning, or electrocution should CPR be considered prior to the CASEVAC phase.
(2) Expose the chest and check for equal rise and fall and for any wounds. (See task 081-831-1026.)
(a) If the casualty has a penetrating chest wound, and is breathing or making an effort to breathe, stop the evaluation to apply an occlusive dressing.
(b) Monitor for increasing respiratory distress. If this occurs, decompress the chest on the same side as the injury. (See task 081 -831-1026.)
(c) Position or transport with the affected side down, if possible.
e. Identify and control bleeding.
(1) Check for bleeding.
(a) Remove minimum of clothing required to expose and treat injuries. Protect casualty from the environment (heat and cold).
(b) Look for blood-soaked clothes.
(c) Look for entry and exit wounds.
(d) Place your hands behind the casualty's neck and pass them upward toward the top of the head. Note whether there is blood or brain tissue on your hands from the casualty's wounds.
(e) Place your hands behind the casualty's shoulders and pass them downward behind the back, the thighs, and the legs. Note whether there is blood on your hands from the casualty's wounds.
(2) If life-threatening bleeding is present, stop the evaluation and control the bleeding. Apply a tourniquet, field dressing, or an emergency trauma dressing, as appropriate. (See tasks 081-831-1025, 081-831-1026, 081-831-1032, and 081-831-1033.) Treat for shock, as appropriate. (See task 081-831-1005.)
Note: If a tourniquet was previously applied, consider converting it to a pressure dressing. (See task 081-831-1032.) By converting the tourniquet to a pressure dressing, it may be possible to save the casualty's limb if the tourniquet has not been in place for 6 hours.
(3) Dress all wounds, including exit wounds.
f. Check for fractures.
(1) Check for open fractures by looking for bleeding or bone sticking through the skin.
(2) Check for closed fractures by looking for swelling, discoloration, deformity, or unusual body position.
(3) If a suspected fracture is present, stop the evaluation and apply a splint. (See task 081-831 -1 034.)
g. Check for burns.
(1) Look carefully for reddened, blistered, or charred skin. Also check for singed clothes.
(2) If burns are found, stop the evaluation and begin treatment. (See task 081-831-1007.)
h. Administer pain medications and antibiotics (the casualty's combat pill pack) to any Soldier wounded in combat.
Note: Each Soldier will be issued a combat pill pack prior to deployment on tactical missions.
i. Transport the casualty to the site where evacuation is anticipated. (See task 081-831-1046.)
3. Monitor an unconscious casualty during casualty evacuation (CASEVAC).
Note: CASEVAC refers to the movement of casualties aboard nonmedical vehicles or aircraft. Combat casualty evacuation care is rendered while the casualty is awaiting pickup or is being transported. A Soldier accompanying an unconscious casualty should monitor the casualty's airway, breathing, and bleeding.
Evaluation Preparation:
Setup: Prepare a "casualty" for the Soldier to evaluate in step 2 by simulating one or more wounds or conditions. Simulate the wounds using a war wounds moulage set, casualty simulation kit, or other available materials. You can coach a "conscious casualty" on how to respond to the Soldier's questions about location of pain or other symptoms of injury. However, you will have to cue the Soldier during evaluation of an "unconscious casualty" as to whether the casualty is breathing and describe the signs or cond itions, as the Soldier is making the checks.
Brief Soldier: To test step 1, tell the Soldier that his/her unit is under fire and ask h im/her what he/she should do to provide aid to casualties. For step 2, tell the Soldier that the tactical situation permits full evaluation of the casualty. Tell him/her to do, in order, all necessary steps to evaluate the casualty and identify all wounds and/or conditions. Tell the Soldier to tell you what first aid action (give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, bandage the wound, and so forth) he/she would take, but that no first aid is to be performed. After he/she has completed the checks (step 2f), ask him/her what else he/she should do. To test step 3, ask him/her what he/she should do while evacuating an unconscious casualty. Performance Measures | Go | NoGo | 1. Performed care under fire. a. Suppressed enemy fire to keep the casualty from sustaining additional wounds. b. Encouraged responsive casualties to protect themselves and perform self-aid, if able. c. Administered life-saving hemorrhage control. d.

The Differences Between Army and National Guard

...debate on which to join. Active Army and National Guard have many differences, such as deployment rates, retirement, and command; however, they are similar in training, rank, and pay. The Army, Navy and Marine Corps were established in 1775 in concurrence with the American Revolution. The war department was established in 1789 and was the precursor to what is now the Department of Defense (DOD). One year later, in 1790 the Coast Guard was established. This was followed by the founding the department of the Navy in 1798. The National Guard as a state funded militia under various names was founded in 1636-1903, as Federal Reserve’s forces called the National Guard 1903 to the present. The Army National guard serves both the state and federal government. The governor of the state where the Army National guard unit is based serves as the commander in chief over all the guard units within that state. The governor can activate their National Guard units in cases of state emergencies. The National Guard is also a reserve component of the U.S. Army and can be activated to defend the nation by the president of the United States. The president is the commander in chief of active duty Army. Active Army is not permitted to intervene with state affairs unless given executive orders by the president. Also the Army and National Guard soldiers fall under the same rank structures: from private to general. Governors have authority over National Guard units in their state, but not over active......

Native Guard Tretheway

...James Cameron Mr. Randolph Engl. 210 9/21/12 Tainted History in Natasha Tretheway’s Native Guard Passion, precision, and technique are all synonyms used to describe Natasha Tretheway’s Native Guard that take the reader through the heart of the south and the heart of the family. This essay will examine the contradictions of (African) American life, especially concerning themes of history and memory. “Southern History”, “Incident”, and “South” will demonstrate these contradictions of (African) American history and memory. Serving as a scribe, Tretheway writes these poems for those people history has muted and closed the veil on. Southern History, Incident, and South; poems from section two of her book, depict racism during slavery and the Civil War, which is a part of forgotten history in the eyes of “Americans.” These historic experiences have not been given the proper examination, discussion, or acknowledgement. Tretheway refuses to allow African American history to remain as footnotes and brings out the real “American” history in her collection of poems. Tretheway’s personal experience growing up as a mulatto in the South is seen in her poem “Southern History”. This poem shows that even after more than a hundred years after the Civil War, history is still tainted. History is imperfect and at times intentionally false as textbooks in this time period were used to misinform students; keeping them bound and restricted from the real history of America. As Tretheway’s...

Siegfried Sassoon's "The Rear Guard" Analysis

Tins, boxes, bottles, shapes too vague to know, A mirror smashed, the mattress from a bed; And he, exploring fifty feet below The rosy gloom of battle overhead. Tripping, he grabbed the wall; saw some one lie Humped at his feet, half-hidden by a rug, And stooped to give the sleeper's arm a tug. "I'm looking for headquarters." No reply. "God blast your neck!" (For days he'd had no sleep.) "Get up and guide me through this stinking place." Savage, he kicked a soft, unanswering heap, And flashed his beam across the livid face Terribly glaring up, whose eyes yet wore Agony dying hard ten days before; And fists of fingers clutched a blackening wound.

Survival Training: U.S. Coast Guard Style

...Survival Training: U.S. Coast Guard Style COMM105 04/18/2010 Survival Training: U.S. Coast Guard Style Survival of the fittest has always played an important role in the advancement of the Human race. Our ancestors learned how to adapt to the harsh environments where they lived in order to survive. Ancient civilizations like the Native American tribes learned to hunt animals in large numbers and preserve the food they had, in order to make it through the cold winter months. Much like it was hundreds of years ago, today some people are still learning how to adapt to their environments in order to survive. My experience in the U.S. Coast Guard while I was stationed in Alaska is a constant reminder that adaptation to your environment is vital for survival. Enlistment In the early winter months of 2002, I enlisted in the United States Coast Guard with the hope of finding a direction for my life. I had signed all the necessary forms and waited for the date in January when I would be flown across the country to Cape May, NJ in the dead middle of winter. What had seemed to be the longest eight weeks of my life, up to that point, had finally ended and I graduated from boot camp. From Cape May, NJ I was sent to Yorktown, VA for six months of specialized training in order to become an electrician and serve my duty to my nation onboard the ships of the U.S. Coast Guard.

Native Guard Essay

...Egstrand 1 Alyssa Egstrand Professor Sewell ENG: The Literary Experience 1331 28 September 2011 Investigating the Impact of History on Modern Society within Natasha Trethewey’s Native Guard Rooted in the shadows of history, Native Guard by Natasha Trethewey intertwines personal and historical accounts to scrutinize the impact of the past on the present. Trethewey’s Native Guard is divided into three sections, which chronicle her mother’s life and death, the erased history of the Louisiana Native Guard, and Trethewey’s childhood in Mississippi. These different stories amalgamate, and open a dialogue about the impact of history on today’s world. Throughout Native Guard Trethewey infuses emotion into these untold stories by including personal reflections regarding each event that transpired. The third and final section of the book though, is the most important component to the overall work; it details Trethewey’s connections to her memories of growing up in Mississippi. This section synthesizes each unique focus of Native Guard, and consequentially forms one united theme: the importance of remembering of the past—the recorded, the biased, and the erased—due to its impact on the future. The final poem, “South” of Natasha Trethewey’s Native Guard, specifically highlights this theme by utilizing extended metaphors, integrating of memories with historical details, and infusing irony to illustrate racial conflicts. Trethewey begins the poem “South” with an extended metaphor......

Having landed them, and upon his return to the rally point he was told by the officer in charge that the conditions of the insertion point were not as exepected. The Marines were under attack from a large Japanese force and needed to be extracted. Munro volunteered to lead the boats back to the beach for the evacuation. He lead the boats in-shore under heavy enemy fire and proceeded to evacuate the marines still on the beach.
