AO wanted to run this past you before we launch our guidance, that ALL deploying OIF/OEF
ers will receive the 8 hour Introduction to Detainee Ops training we received from
you. Only units that have the specific detainee mission are required all the other
related tasks which amounted to about five days of training.
