BATTLE INOCULATION

n. realistic training which inoculates soldiers on the stresses of combat and other war-time operations. In the process, they learn on how to react and cope with stress such that they're better-prepared to deal with future situations. Specifically, the training makes use of simulated conditions like live fire from real weapons and the shock and noise of being deployed in real combat.

BATTLE INOCULATION: "As part of battle inoculation, every soldier must be thoroughly trained in preparation for being deployed in actual combat."
