    This month’s operation is based on OIF Iraq, and includes civilian / role-players.

    Civilians may or may not be combative. The goal of the USFOR is to ‘liberate’ the civilian population, not to kill them. As a civilian, you may be friendly to US forces, and will have some things to do that have nothing to do with attacks or shooting plastic BBs.

    If you are interested in a civilian role, let Mike or me know, on the SCA, BAAL or SPEAR Group forum, the facebook page, or email.



    Iraq 2007: At the height of the sectarian violence in Iraq, a fresh US Army unit has been rotated to a station near a small Iraqi village in the Al Anbar Province. Their mission is to protect and control their area of operations (LZ-5). There has been a large amount of insurgent activity in the area recently, and after several bombing of local villages it has become high priority to protect against civilian causalities.
