Personnel support during Operation Desert ShieldStorm exceeded all doctrinal standards. The command and control of personnel support was directed through 10th PERSCOM and three Personnel Groups, 7th Personnel Group and 18th Personnel Group in support of their respective corps, and 3rd Personnel Group in support of non-corps units or EAC. This Personal Experience Monograph describes my experiences as deputy commander of 3rd Personnel Group in the establishment of three wartime personnel functions postal, replacement, and casualty operations. The monograph elaborates on issues related to command, organization, personnel support structure, reserve component training and the need for the creation of a joint casualty reporting system. This monograph reviews personnel support during an unprecedented period of wartime turbulence and identifies areas for doctrinal modification.
