To prepare and plan for the various health and general threats that my unit could face during deployment
To prepare and plan for the various health and general threats that my unit could face during deployment, I think it is best to get with my S-2 shop and get whatever intel they have received about Nakhchivan. Some general threats I see us facing there are combatants, local militia, and other locals that may not see our presence as humanitarian. The best way to make sure we are prepared for those threats would be to conduct training for those that are on the security detail. Have them qualify on their weapon systems and have them be proficient at watching their sectors of fire. I would also instruct their team leaders to do pre-combat inspections and pre-combat checks to insure they have all the proper person protective equipment, such as their plates in there plate carrier.
For the health threats, it really all depends on what my S-2 gives me about the regions. I would make sure every soldier deploying was up to date on their vaccines and immunizations. If there was medications that soldiers are required to take for deployment. I would check to make sure they had at least a 90 day supply before getting into Nakhchivan. The unit would also bring chemical gear to be cautious just in case we were attacked by some form of chemical weapon while in country. We would also conduct training on what we know about the environment. That way the soldiers are aware of the temperatures and environment there. They would also receive a brief on how long it would take them to acclimate to the elements.
