Abstract:

This handbook was written to provide general guidance for new TALOs in the planning and conduct of operations in-garrison and while deployed, The need for this handbook was identified by MACDOCSA and former TALOs during the worldwide TALO conferences held in 1983 and 1984. The TALO force has two major problems which necessitate the development and publishing of a handbook. First, to fill TALO positions, MAC must accept volunteers straight from rated assignments. These individuals are usually limited in their joint service backgrounds. Second, MAC has approximately a 40 percent turnover rate in TALO positions. These assignments are usually of a two year duration, therefore there is a continual training cycle of new personnel. MAC requires all TALOs to attend two schools before reporting to their duty positions. While these schools provide the basics, they do not necessarily provide the guidance or knowledge needed for the TALO to begin operating effectively upon arrival at his new duty position, The handbook provides the TALO with a working knowledge of past and present problems, a common sense approach to solutions, and additional useful information.
