    Special Reconnaissance Tactics Techniques Procedures For Special Forces - FM-31-20-5

    Special reconnaissance (SR) is defined as reconnaissance and surveillance ac- tions conducted by Special Forces (SF) to obtain or verify, by visual observa- tion or other collection methods, information concerning the capabilities, intentions, and activities of an actual or potential enemy or to secure data con- cerning the meteorologic, hydrographic, geographic, or demographic charac- teristics of a particular area. It includes target acquisition, area assessment, and poststrike reconnaissance.
    Field manual (FM) 31-20-5 provides the doctrinal basis for the conduct of SR missions across the operational continuum. It is a continuation of the doctrinal education process that begins with Joint Publication 3-05.5 and FMs 100-25 and 31-20. This manual provides information and guidance to SF commanders, staffs, and operational personnel at battalion and lower echelons (Special Forces operational detachments [SFODs] C, B, and A) in their conduct of SR. It is a general guide and does not eliminate the requirement for well-written, practiced, and mission-essential task list (METL)-driven standing operating procedures (SOPs).

    Pharmacology - MD-0804

    A patient who visits a physician or physician extender frequently receives a prescription for a medication. That prescription is brought to the pharmacy to be filled. The patient expects professional attention at the pharmacy. Part of that expectation involves any caution or warning the patient should heed while taking the medication.
    In your role you will serve as a source of drug information. Patients and friends will ask you specific questions concerning the use of prescription and over-the-counter medications. You must know the trade and generic names of literally hundreds of medications. Furthermore, you must know the cautions and warnings associated with many agents.
    How are you to know this information about drugs? Certainly you have had instruction which presented the basics of anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology. This instruction has given you a sound foundation for learning more in these areas. This subcourse will present instruction in anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology. The material in anatomy and physiology is included to refresh your memory or to give you additional information so you can better understand the pharmacology material.
    This subcourse is not intended to be used as an authoritative source of drug information. As you know, new drugs are constantly being discovered and new uses for existing drugs are being found through research. Therefore, you must rely upon this subcourse to review concepts or to learn new information. You are then to use other sources (see lesson 1 of this subcourse) to gain new information as it is discovered.

    Principles of Epidemiology and Microbiology - MD-0151

    One of the important landmarks in man's struggle to conquer disease was the invention of the microscope, generally attributed to Anton van Leeuwenhoek of Holland. Leeuwenhoek described the appearance of protozoa to the Royal Society of London in 1673. Thus, the world became aware of microbial life. Subsequently, Louis Pasteur, Lord Lister, Robert Koch, and others established the role of microorganisms as the causative agents of many diseases and developed techniques for determining the etiology (cause) and preventive measures for many previously uncontrolled diseases.
    During the period 1893--1902, several important events occurred in military medicine that benefited not only the Army, but mankind in general. Under the direction of Army Surgeon General George Sternberg (also known as "The Father of American Bacteriology"), Walter Reed, William Gorgas, and other medical officers made dramatic progress in the etiology and control of typhoid fever, malaria, and yellow fever.
    This subcourse introduces the basic principles of disease transmission and epidemiology--principles which were used by Reed and Gorgas and which are in use today. It also introduces the student to the study of the microbiological agents, which are important from a military and public health viewpoint.

    Intelligence Officers Handbook - Fm-34-8-2

    This manual does not replace the doctrine and TTP contained in the other FM 34-series manuals; it does, however, focus on their application. It also summarizes information that helps the S2 manage and coordinate the CCIR. It provides the S2 the roles and missions required for executing the intelligence support function.
    The G2/S2 is the “Top Down”/“Bottom Up” integrator of RISTA operations, which have always been performed at the brigade and battalion levels. Three factors help to redefine traditional R&S planning:
    Top Down reporting. Bottom Up reporting. Digitization.

    Special Forces Caching Techniques - TC-31-29

    Caching is the process of hiding equipment or materials in a secure storage place with the view to future recovery for operational use. The ultimate success of caching may well depend upon attention to detail, that is, professional competence that may seem of minor importance to the untrained eye. Security factors, such as cover for the caching party, sterility of the items cached, and removal of even the slightest trace of the caching operations are vital. Highly important, too, are the technical factors that govern the preservation of the items in usable condition and the recording of data essential for recovery. Successful caching entails careful adherence to the basic principles of clandestine operations, as well as familiarity with the technicalities of caching.

    Small Unit Night Fighter Manual

    This Small Unit Night Fighter Handbook combines existing doctrine with night-fighting tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) currently used by light infantry squads and platoons. The dismounted battle drills found in ARTEP 7-8, MTP DRILL, form the basis for these TTP. The drills in Chapter 2 incorporate existing technology with current doctrine to overcome limiting factors experienced by soldiers and leaders at night. The result is a modified mission training plan for squad and platoon battle drills that enhance the unit's ability to fight at night as well as deny the enemy his night capabilities or advantages.
    These drills form the basis for a unit training plan. The techniques that are incorporated into the drills must be modified as the situation dictates, and may vary with individual unit SOPs. The leader's METT-T analysis (referred to throughout this document as MTETT (mission, terrain, enemy, troops and time available)) must also take into consideration the enemy's night vision capabilities, and the availability of equipment referenced in these drills.

    Tactics - fm3_90

    FM 3-90 introduces the basic concepts and control measures associated with the art of tactics. It cannot be read in isolation. To understand FM 3-90, the reader must understand the operational art, principles of war, and links between the operational and tactical levels of war described in FM 3-0, Operations. He should understand how the activities described in FM 3-07, Stability Operations and Support Operations, carry over and affect offensive and defensive operations and vice versa. He should understand the operations (plan, prepare, execute, and assess) process described in FM 6-0, Command and Control, and how that process relates to the military decision making process and troop-leading procedures described in FM 5-0, Army Planning and Orders Production. FM 3-90 also refers to joint publications (JPs). Reviewing referenced JPs will also aid in understanding FM 3-90.
    FM 3-90 focuses on the tactics used to employ available means to win in combat. Those tactics require judgment in application. The ability to seize and secure terrain, with its populations and productive capacity, distinguishes land forces conducting decisive offensive and defensive operations. FM 3-90 provides a com- mon discussion of how commanders from the battalion task force level through the corps echelon conduct tactical offensive and defensive operations and their supporting tactical enabling operations. It is not prescriptive, but authoritative.
    Tactical fundamentals do not change with the fielding of each new piece of equipment. However, the integration of new equipment and organizations usually requires changes in related techniques and procedures. FM 3-90 provides guidance in the form of combat-tested concepts and ideas modified to exploit emerging Army and joint capabilities.
