The Department of Defense announces the assignment of an enhanced military capability to U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) to assist civil authorities in the response to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive (CBRNE) incidents in the U.S. homeland.
Starting Oct. 1st, the 3rd infantry division will be placed on active duty within US borders under the command of NorthCom. This marks the first time NorthCom has been assigned an active duty unit.
The 3rd will be training in how to deal with things such as civil unrest and crowd control, public panic due to nuclear, biological or chemical attacks, massive poisoning or explosives. They will also be trained in using non-lethal weapons.
Training has already begun in Ft. Stuart, GA with a final training session ending in mid-September.
