USDA and the U.S. Department of Defense have partnered in the fight against disease-spreading insects since before World War II. In 2004, the Deployed War-Fighter Protection (DWFP) research program was implemented to prevent or defend U.S. troops from insect attacks. The story on "DWFP: A Battle Plan To Protect U.S. Troops From Harmful Insects" lists some of ARS’s many DWFP research contributions that already benefit or may eventually benefit both soldiers and consumers.
