Abstract:

This monograph discusses tactical ground reconnaissance at the National Training Center. Two previous studies of this subject revealed that the U.S. Army had a major weakness in this area. Both studies recommended changes in doctrine which would reduce the problem. The monograph analyses current doctrine to determine if reconnaissance is integrated into all facets of tactical operations. The monograph then reveals the results of a study of Take Home Packages from units rotating to the National Training Center. The monograph then recommends doctrinal changes which should increase the current reconnaissance success rate.
