Abstract:

Future JTF Commanders are faced with a variety of complex issues in commanding Military Operations Other Than War MOOTW. These external demands must not detract from the commander 5 responsibility to protect the mental military readiness of the Armed Forces under his command. As demonstrated in past MOOTWs, each of the principles of MOOTW all has implications for unique psychological stress imposed on deployed troops and the resulting role of the JTF commander in preventing and countering this stress. New leadership styles and techniques are called for in the future JTF commander to preserve the psychological readiness of his troops to perform in MOOTW scenarios.
