DoD Questionnaire: Questions for soldiers concerning their observations and experience in dealing with detainees, training before deployment and Rules of Engagement. The questionnaire appears to be in response to the accusations of detainee abuse and an effort to elicit information on the matter. Rank E7 says Detainee Operations training was comprised of classes’ only and included training on 5S's and search, silence, segregate, speed and safeguard and tag procedures. Comments that more training is needed on paperwork because paperwork is often incomplete.
