This publication is for those forces who could possibly deploy to Haiti to provide humanitarian assistance to the populace and assist in the restoration of democracy.
This Special Edition CALL publication introduces Haiti, provides insights into Operations Other Than War, highlights major preventive medicine lessons, provides Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTP) for the soldier, and presents Haitian customs. The information in this Special Edition does not replicate that presently found in doctrinal publications. It is not intended to serve as a program to guide the conduct of operations and training. Rather, this newsletter is designed to highlight information and lessons that are applicable to the unique environment offered by the Haitian humanitarian assistance operations.
The Haitian effort poses many unique challenges not faced by our military forces in recent operations. Of utmost concern is the need to care for the health and welfare of deployed U.S. forces. Disease, the lack of sanitation, and death are daily circumstances associated with the collapse of the Haitian governmental infrastructure.
CALL thanks those persons of the 1st Battalion, 4th Psychological Operations Group (FOG), and the Foreign Military Studies Office (FMSO), U. S. Army Command and General Staff College (USACGSC), who shared their insights and experiences. This information and TTP are provided for your use and dissemination. If your unit has identified other relevant lessons or information, please share them with the rest of the U.S. Army by contacting CALL at DSN 552-2255 or 4317. Comments concerning this newsletter should be addressed to Commander, Combined Arms Command, ATTN: ATZL-CTL, Fort Leavenworth, KS 66027-7000.
