ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the military training needed to address the threat of improvised explosive devices (IED). According to Master Sgt. Christopher Ferreira, IED training should be mandatory no matter where the soldiers are deployed and they should be required to stop at a training station. One such station is being operated by Task Force Mustang of the Army Reserve's 402nd Field Artillery Brigade at Fort Bliss in Texas. The training will familiarize soldiers with different types of IED they may encounter, including vehicle- and personnel-borne IED.
