1. SITUATION:

Logar Province, Afghanistan, 2007. The Taliban/AQ have been waging low-intensity warfare against the Afghan government and its ISAF partners. Government establishments, as well as civilian centers have been the main victims of the insurgency in recent months and ISAF forces have also been regularly engaged by insurgent forces. Recently developed sources have discovered that the Taliban may be using the regional production of Opium/Cannabis to fund their insurgency operations. In order to quell the insurgency, ISAF forces must begin investigating the production of narcotics in the region and determine their legality. To do so, ISAF forces will need to establish stronger presence in these drug-producing regions. 1st Platoon's objective is to establish a foothold in the region by rebuilding two combat outposts in the Nefer River Valley, conducting a presence patrol through the valley and clearing a known IED-ridden compound, and meeting with a local village leader to discuss his village's production of narcotics.

 

 

a. 2000s - Rules of Engagement

On order from your commander, enemy military and paramilitary forces are declared hostile and may be attacked subject to the following instructions:

  1. Positive Identification (PID) is required prior to engagement. PID is a reasonable certainty that the proposed target is a legitimate military target. If no PID, contact your next highest commander for decision.
  2. Do not engage anyone who has surrendered, or is unarmed or wounded. 
  3. Any requests for fire support or close air support within 600 Meters of a civilian center must first get authorization from commanding officer. 

2. MISSION

1st Platoon's primary objective will be to deploy from FOB Glenn to reestablish/fortify COP Aldrin and COP Armstrong. After securing the COPs, 1st Platoon will conduct a presence patrol through the town of Nefer (OBJ Gemini) and clear an old industrial complex ridden with IEDs (OBJ Mercury). Finally, 1st Platoon will meet with a local leader in the village of Kandar (OBJ Apollo) to discuss the village's production of Cannabis/Opium and its significance, then destroy the drug operation if found to be illegal.
