BATTLE INOCULATION

is the process of attempting to desensitize soldiers or personnel who might find themselves in a battle situation, so they are not affected by shock if and when the time comes. Research has shown the more realistic the practice situation and time spent in situations which emulate the real environment prepare the individual by a greater degree than less accurate practice situations.

BATTLE INOCULATION: "The U.S. Army is allocating more and more money into battle inoculation after seeing the potential benefits on their soldiers under real fire."
