Tucker2nd ID CommanderWarriors, last week I spent a few days withyour brigade and battalion commanders andcommand sergeants major at the 2010 2ID Commander’s Conference. We talked a lot about theimportance of building and maintaining strongteams within our division. A large part of the‘maintaining piece’ is ensuring the safety ofour Soldiers and their Families. As I look outthe window today, heavy rains cascade fromthe sky across Camp Red Cloud and the rest ofWarrior Country. A quick glance at the 10-dayforecast tells me that the rainy season has yet toleave the Korean peninsula, which means monsoon safety is still an important topic to us all.Monsoon season poses potentially seriousrisks to 2nd ID Soldiers, Families, and operations. The season normally runs from late Junethrough early September. The rains have beenrelatively mild so far this year, but as you cansee from the last couple of days, this year’smonsoon season is far from over. Flash floods,landslides, and other dangerous conditions cancome on quickly. It’s important that we remainvigilant in our plans and preparations to guardagainst preventable damage to property or lossof life.Leaders at all levels in the division shouldreview their destructive weather plans. It’s beenseveral years since we have had severe flooding in Area I, and some things have changed inour division footprint since then to mitigate therapid rise in water levels.It is imperative for new commanders to ensure their unit plans are up to date and includeprovisions for the increased number of Familiesnow living in Warrior Country. This may takea little time and effort, but I believe the juiceis worth the squeeze. Remember, units do wellthose things the boss checks; and we have leaders at all echelons in our units.Some actions leaders can take to mitigaterisks:-Carefully select field training sites. Walk theterrain; develop and brief egress plans.-Avoid areassubject to floodingor areas alreadyflooded;neverdrivethroughflooded roadwaysor attempt to crossflowing streams.Should you getmired, you couldbe in grave danger.-Do not bivouac or park vehiclesalong streams and washes.-When advised, evacuate immediately. Don’twait, even if it stops raining - it could still beraining upstream from your location.As we welcome new Soldiers and Familiesinto the division, it’s important that we familiarize them to the hazards associated with monsoon season. “Under the Oak Tree” counselingis a good time to talk with new Soldiers to ensure they understand the potential risks theymay face, both on and off duty.Since the curfew has been lifted throughoutthe peninsula, there are new opportunities to getout and explore the beautiful Korean countryside. Warriors, this means planning for the unexpected and exercising good judgment in casethe weather takes a turn for the worse. Visit the2nd ID Web site and check the forecast beforeyou head out for a weekend adventure. Tunein to American Forces Network while you’reon the road. Any changes to Flood Conditionlevels or weather advisories are broadcasted onboth AFN radio and television.As summer begins to wind down and welook at the busy months ahead, many of youwill want to squeeze in that last outdoor adventure before the days turn cooler and fall is uponus. I encourage you to get out and take in allthat the Land of the Morning Calm has to offer.However, before you head out, take a few minutes to check the weather, plan for emergencies,and ensure your tour in Korea remains “Secondto spaper staffMaj.
