2004 - Team Delta's POW Interrogation Resistance Program has been
expanded to four days and will begin Thursday late afternoon or
evening and continue through to Sunday afternoon. The program will
include a briefing setting forth the program and the best ways to handle
its various aspects. Then participants will
be divided into teams and assigned a local mission to be
to the start of
Team Deltas Prisoner of War Interrogation Resistance
Program is very
similar to the Resistance portion of SERE (Survival, Evasion,
Resistance, Escape) School, where special ops
personnel are trained to survive
in the event they are ever captured behind enemy lines.
While operating within a tightly controlled and supervised environment,
this program assumes the participants are prisoners of an enemy of the
United States that does not observe the rules of the Geneva Convention.
This is Team
Deltas toughest and most challenging program. Team Deltas trained
interrogators use their considerable skills to
extract information from participants.
During the program participants: get little or no sleep; are extremely
uncomfortable; are under great emotional and physical stress; and are pushed
to their individual physical and psychological limits.
Whether or not a participant breaks (provides the
secret information provided prior to the start of the program), and most military
personnel going through similar training do eventually break, each participant comes
through the program not only with an extremely memorable experience, but with a much
better understanding of himself and with pride in his ability to persevere through an
extremely arduous and challenging ordeal.
