22. I think military PSYOPS is generally misunderstood on DU
Do you know what they mostly do?

They distribute leaflets or use loudspeakers to communicate various things to the local populace. This can range to where to get food/water to telling civilians to get out before a major offensive.

They are the military mouthpiece, but I think their role is generally overstated here.
