Defence Policy major: immersion in the French Army

From 17 to 18 November 2023, auditors from the 3rd national session of the IHEDN shared the lives of soldiers from the 2nd Dragoon Regiment at Camp du Ruchard, the 1st Tirailleurs Regiment in Epinal and the CAPCIA - 51st Infantry Regiment in Mourmelon.
Les auditeurs de la Poldef sur le terrain

The trip was punctuated by a wide range of simulated situations similar to what soldiers experience when they take their first steps in operational preparation. The programme included shooting simulation, an introduction to night-time progression, combat first aid, CBRN decontamination, a presentation of land-based equipment, a visit to a World War 1 site and a fireside evening.

In all three regiments, the welcome was remarkable and particularly appreciated by the auditors. Apart from a few aches and pains when they returned from their missions, these immersions were rich in lessons and left a lasting impression on the auditors.
