Strengthening Military Relationships for Defense Support of Civil Authorities   [open pdf - 287KB]

"There have been many discussions of unity of effort and unity of command in regards to domestic civil support operations and the relationship of Title 32 and Title 10 assets. The question of State Adjutants General having operational control of Title 10 military forces and Title 10 active duty officers under USC 32 given operational control of Title 32 National Guard has been at the center of these discussions. Building relationships and understanding between the military forces is part of the solution to move past these discussions. This paper will examine four concepts which will support the building of stronger relationships between Title 32 National Guard forces and Title 10 military forces in domestic civil support operations. These four measures for consideration are the use of the State National Guards' Joint Force Headquarters-State (JFHQ-State), the use of Joint Doctrine for planning and command and control relationships, formalizing the exposure and understanding of Title 32 assets in the Professional Military Education (PME) system, and the vital leadership skills required to build this relationship."
