ABSTRACT

Force Protection: It's Time for a Joint Force Component Commander for Antiterrorism/Force Protection   [open pdf - 863KB]

"As today's military operations increasingly involve non-traditional application of our military services, our enemy also becomes non-traditional. There is essentially no credible force that can assert its military might against our armed forces in the traditional methods of warfare. Therefore, they must resort to unconventional attacks against our armed forces with the intent of constructing an atmosphere of terror among our forces and weakening the national will of our citizens at home. Forces critical to the Operational Commander are threatened daily by terrorist organizations on both a local and global level. Success today depends upon the strong defense of our forces. This can only be accomplished by standardizing our force protection procedures, integrating those procedures into our training, fully funding both training and equipment and placing one individual in charge of executing those procedures, the Joint Force Component Commander for Antiterrorism/Force Protection."
