Abstract : SPECIFIC INFORMATION ON THE MEDICAL THREAT AND PREVENTION - The following information is given as general health advice. During almost all military activities including war, large numbers of soldiers are affected by disease. Often disease will cause more casualties than bullets because war and other disasters disrupt sanitation and displace large numbers of people. Practice disease prevention and report to medical personnel immediately if you feel ill. What you believe to be diarrhea or the flu may be a serious illness that needs immediate attention. Recently in Somalia, the great majority of U.S. military personnel remained healthy by preventing disease and getting medical help early. Still many became ill because they did not follow preventive guidance correctly.
