Abstract:

Foreign Assistance, both military and non-military, is a subject of the highest national and strategic importance to the United States, especially in the post-Vietnam international security setting. This paper, tying Foreign Assistance and Foreign Military Assistance together in terms of US international security objectives in the mid-range and long-range periods, reviews a few highly selected current approaches. It makes recommendations for constructive change, to include increased use of planning, Organizational Development, and the Systems Approach, and it places special emphasis on the possible roles of the US Army in an environment where Foreign Military Assistance and Nation-Building might become the Armys highest-priority operational mission.
