Abstract:

This paper will suggest that Civil Affairs as a branch in the Army has not fully achieved equality of other branches in terms of credibility, skills sets, and personnel that would give commanders a broad understanding of how to utilize Civil Affairs forces. Furthermore, this essay proposes an officer basic course for the Civil Affairs branch to train and populate its force to meet the needs of current and future operations.
