Abstract:

There is no clear doctrine for command and control of Echelon Above Corps EAC level maintenance in an immature theater. This point became clear during Desert ShieldStorm when civilian contractors, depot employees, reserve and national guard soldiers and essential installation maintenance technicians entered the Kuwait Theater of Operation KTO without an in-theater command structure. It also became clear during Desert ShieldStorm that there is no transition to war program which coordinates all EAC maintenance units in peacetime and permits a rapid, logical transition to war. Without clear doctrine and an operational transition to war program, resources are wasted every time the Army sets up EAC level maintenance operations. This paper proposes a clear command and control structure for maintenance operations in an immature theater and outlines an organizational partnership to facilitate a rapid transition from peace to conflict.
