Abstract:

The United States Army is faced today with the prospect of peacekeeping operations around the world. As of this writing the Army has deployed troops to Somalia and is preparing for the possibility of sending still more to the former Yugoslavia. Peacekeeping, once thought to be the province of smaller nations, now is a major concern for the Army. This paper examines the unique peacekeeping environment and identifies the special training requirements for military forces. While the authors do not advocate the full-time training of specialized "peacekeeping units" they recognize the need to change the "mindset" of deploying soldiers from combat to peacekeeping and adequately preparing staffs for such duty. The authors recommend a common sense approach to soldier, unit and staff training designed to better prepare American soldiers for the new challenges ahead.
