Abstract:

The increased focus on the lower end of the spectrum of conflict, particularly low-intensity conflict LIC itself, highlights the critical balance which must be obtained between rapid deployment and mission capability. Combat support and combat service support activities must be able to demonstrate a direct application to mission accomplishment or be relegated to follow on forces which can only be brought into theater when time and lift assets allow. The role played by the Chemical Corps in chemical-biological CB defense is acknowledged and recognized throughout the Army but what if an immediate CB threat is lacking Chemical warfare.
