ABSTRACT

Civil Affairs Support to Domestic Disaster Relief Operations   [open pdf - 30KB]

"This paper has sought to offer several ways to better prepare Civil Affairs units in meeting their mission training requirements, to develop ways to better employ these trained units to alleviate human suffering, both for foreign and domestic emergency situations, and to better utilize Reserve Component forces during a period of the downsizing of the overall US military force and the shifting of missions within the Total Force. Civil Affairs can be an important 'combat multiplier' as well as an economy-of-force element in many missions of the emerging 'Operations Other Than War' situations the military is now facing. The use of these unique capabilities of Civil Affairs supports the US national strategy and its supporting military strategy as the United States continues in its role as a world leader through its ability to quickly deploy and employ trained military forces anywhere in the world."
