Abstract : With the commitment of U.S. forces to the United Nations military action to counter the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in August 1990, the Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) played an important role in support of the subsequent U.S. Army deployment of 300,000 troops to the Persian Gulf as part of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Added to TRADOC's peacetime charge to prepare the Army for war were direct wartime tasks related to the mobilization, movement, and the training and combat-doctrinal development support of soldiers and supplies in and through the Army training and school installations that TRADOC commanded, together with care on the homefront for the families of the soldiers involved. This TRADOC Historical Study is a preliminary examination of TRADOC support to Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. It was undertaken to provide the TRADOC commander and staff an early documented assessment of the command's support role in that joint and combined endeavor that culminated in the expulsion of Iraqi forces from Kuwait in early 1991. A comprehensive analytical record of the support which Headquarters TRADOC and its installations, schools, and activities rendered to the Army in the Persian Gulf operations will follow in a more detailed historical monograph to be published in 1994.
