"This publication provides over arching guidelines for planning and executing joint reception, staging, onward movement, and integration (JRSOI) of the Armed Forces of the United States. It explains the process of JRSOI using three major functions -command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence; force protection; and the JRSOI support organization. Its focus is at the supported combatant command level. This publication has been prepared under the direction of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It sets forth doctrine and selected joint tactics, techniques, and procedures (JTTP) to govern the joint activities and performance of the Armed Forces of the United States in joint operations and provides the doctrinal basis for US military involvement in multinational and interagency operations. It provides military guidance for the exercise of authority by combatant commanders and other joint force commanders and prescribes doctrine and selected tactics, techniques, and procedures for joint operations and training. It provides military guidance for use by the Armed Forces in preparing their appropriate plans. It is not the intent of this publication to restrict the authority of the joint force commander (JFC) from organizing the force and executing the mission in a manner the JFC deems most appropriate to ensure unity of effort in the accomplishment of the overall mission. Doctrine and selected tactics, techniques, and procedures and guidance established in this publication apply to the commanders of combatant commands, sub-unified commands, joint task forces, and subordinate components of these commands."
