Abstract:

This review of American Military involvement in five overseas constabulary operations was undertaken to infer principles that can guide U. S. Operations in low-level conflict situations. The five cases are American Samoa, the Garde dHaiti, the Guardia Nacional Nicaragua, and the USMC Combined Action Program in South Vietnam. Two types of recommendations are made 1 Recommendations that would increase U. S. institutional preparedness to undertake operations of a constabulary nature--i.e. doctrine development, training, personnel policy, and development of area-specific knowledge for U. S. forces and, 2 Operational guides for planners, commanders, and others involved in constabulary of similar operations.
