This is our site. It is devoted to the relatively new and unique insignia collecting speciality of CIMIC.

 

This is a 'sister site' to Drew Chaney's Worldwide PSYOPS Unit site.   

Check it out at:                                                     http://psyopsinsignia.pbworks.com/?pwd=gWHa5mX5Y6

 

Piotr Lewandowski is Polish Army CIMIC officer.  Apart from CIMIC insignia, Piotr also collects Worldwide Mountain Warfare & Military Ski insignia.

Check out his devoted insignia wiki at:             http://mountainwarfarecadre.pbworks.com/FrontPage?lo=4717cc3a


 

This site is devoted entirely to those units responsible for CIMIC 

  • Civil Military Cooperation 
  • Civil Affairs
  • Humanitarian Action 
  • Civic Action 
  • Accion Integral
  • Military Government, and
  • Hearts and Minds campaigns

 

In essence we are interested in those units responsible for 'managing' the military civil relationship - be that in times of war, natural distaster and in theatres other than war.  

 

The Civil Military relationship is ever so important (for the military that is !)....... in trying to keep local population groups out of harms way, 

accepting of, and obedient to military efforts and governance, as well as open to endeavours that are directed at construction and re-construction.  Mass media and modern communications ensure that today's military campaigns are shown 'warts and all' to a worldwide television audience.   Public opinion is important. The avoidance of collateral damage is essential, if not paramount to maintain that public support.   CIMIC is a new field and function - one that many modern military forces have openly accpeted and concentrated upon.  It remains an interesting component in many military arsenals and it's place therein and management thereof is incredibly interesting - ranging from being a Special Forces functional area in the USA, to that of the Intelligence Corps of many nations, and Logistics Corps in may others.  The interesting aspect for Drew is how closely CIMIC interacts with PSYOPS, and how CIMIC unit activation 'allows' many nations to embrace PSYOPS (without the negative connotations) by alligning PSYOPS, or hiding the PSYOPS capability within CIMIC. 

 

Civilian population groups are involved in wars, conflicts and skirmishes, by way of their geographical position and vulnerability status.

Civilians are casualities in these wars and their movements i.e. refugees on the march, or encirclement by forces makes the civilian entity

an important component of modern military startegy planning.  Collateral damage / carpet bombing of cities and civilian infrastructure are all aspects now quickly reported upon and unnacceptable in modern theatres of war.  Indeed, many nations are involved in what is termed theatres other than war - Multinational Forces are assembled and undertake peacekeeping or Humanitarian operations.........ensuring relief actions are conducted without interference between two foes etc.  CIMIC and PSYOPS often work together in their Hearts and Minds efforts.
