Background Information


Discussion Questions

As the sun rises over the land, the village of Givrakh appears idyllic. However, this is a dead place that has been struck by a silent killer. It has left all of the inhabitants in either a hospital or worse yet, dead. The culprit, influenza, is possibly the most deadly strain of the virus yet seen. Experts from the World Health Organization are saying that this virus is worse than both the avian and swine flu outbreaks. It swept through this area with incredible speed. The entire region of Nakhchivan is now under quarantine. As a NCO in your Medical Detachment, you are part of the international effort to get control of the situation. Complicating matters is the recent increase in tensions between Atropia and Minaria over the region of Nagorno-Karabakh, a conflict that threatens to affect the relief efforts here in Nakhchivan.

In preparation for deployment to Nakhchivan, your unit is conducting predeployment training. Your unit will have to convoy several km to the village of Givrakh and wants to brush up on convoy training. You are tasked with training your unit in convoy operations and survivability. What things must you keep in mind when preparing your block of instruction? What areas of convoy operations do you feel should be emphasized more?
