Law of War PE 1

1. What would your response to the order be?

The order is violating the Laws of War. You can’t force civilians to leave if they don’t want to. Also, you are supposed to protect civilian property more than government property. Destroying the homes could be considered hostile act against civilians.

2. Would you change it? Yes

3. How?

Inform the mayor that at 0600 the evacuation will begin and he should gather every one up that is willing to leave. Ask him to inform the people that staying could get them killed and that we will make every effort to keep their homes safe. We will help rebuild any homes that are damaged.

4. What actions would you employ to prevent Law of War violations and crimes?

The best thing I could do is to ensure proper training of my soldiers and enforcing the standard as spelled out in FM 27-10.

Law of War PE 2

1. As a senior squad leader how would you respond to this?

I would speak with the commander and state that I understand that the destruction of these weapons is a necessity to the safety of the Military, but civilian casualties are always our concern and never an option.

2. What would be your course of action?

My course of action would be to ensure an evacuation the sector of town surrounding the weapon manufacture and the warehouses storing the weapons. An operation order outlining a plan to overtake the manufacture and weapon warehouses without civilian casualties must be created.

Law of War

...Law Of War Homework Assignment NAME: SSG Friday, Joshua R. DATE: 26 November 2012 CLASS: 131-13 1. The student Handout references indiscriminate attacks. What does the statement “Soldiers will not fire indiscriminately” mean to you and why is it important? To fire indiscriminately means to fire ones weapons at random with no clear target or purpose. So to say they won’t do it means they will fire only when necessary and at the correct target. When a Soldier fires with appropriate judgment and guidance it limits the amount of innocent people being wounded. It forces the Soldier to distinguish between a combatant and a non-combatant and to hopefully use good judgment. 2. In your own words, explain the following key terms for this lesson and provide examples: Hors de Combat: This means that you can’t attack someone who isn’t prepared to attack.   Someone who is sick, injured, a prisoner of war, someone jumping from a plane, or medical personnel are people that aren’t prepared to respond to an attack. Auxiliary Medical personnel: These personnel have special training to perform their medical duties when they come in contact with enemy forces. A good example of this would be Combat Lifesavers. Grave Breaches: These are severe violations of The Law of War and are equal to felonies in criminal law.   Examples of this would be; wrongful killing, torturing someone, causing great suffering to someone, or willfully depriving a POW for a fair......

...Law Of War Homework Assignment NAME: DATE: CLASS: 1. The student Handout references indiscriminate attacks. What does the statement “Soldiers will not fire indiscriminately” mean to you and why is it important? This statement means that military soldiers should only fire their weapons when necessary targeting only military objectives and not the noncombatants. It is very important to understand this concept so that innocent people such as the civilians would not get injured during any kind of firing. Soldiers need to determine the difference between combatants and non-combatants. 2. In your own words, explain the following key terms for this lesson and provide examples: Hors de Combat: This defines the meaning of no one should be attack who is not prepared such as the sick, injured, medic, prisoner of war, or any other individuals who are not ready to attack back. Auxiliary Medical personnel: This group of personnel are allowed to perform their medical duties if when there is an enemy force. Grave Breaches: These are severe violations of The Law of War and are equal to felonies in criminal law such as wrongful killing, torturing someone, causing great suffering to someone, or willfully depriving a POW for a fair trial.

W337 - Information Awareness Pe Situation 1 and 2

...Information Awareness PE Situation 1 First and foremost I would either remind her to remove the thumb-drive if she is still in the area, or remove it myself if she has already left by the time I noticed the issue. I would also talk to her and possibly counsel her about the incident as soon as possible to ensure she understands the seriousness of the issue at hand. I may also consider training not just for her, but for the entire shop (depending on whether or not I thought that was necessary based on last training dates and/or any prior incidents). Of course this answer is based on isolated incidents. If this becomes a repetitive issue then I may have to take further actions such as having her removed from the shop and/or recommending UCMJ actions be taken. 10.00 out of 10 Information Awareness PE Situation 2 The first issue I see here is that as far as I know (correct me if I'm wrong) only a DOD authorized device can be connect to a DOD computer. I would have to stop SPC Lomas and remind him of this. If he wants to show his buddies what he has on his watch drive, then he needs to do it on his own computer or one of their computers. The main thing I would be concerned about is what he may have brought along with whatever he has on it, such as viruses or trojans. I may also approach SPC. Lomas and order him to show me the contents of the flash drive. If there was, in fact, material not in keeping with Army values, I would delete the material. I would then inform him...
