Abstract:

The experiences of the 10th Mountain Division Light Infantry since August 1992 have begun to put a human face on the concept of employing the US Army as a power projection force in operations other than war. Less than six weeks after sending more than 6000 soldiers and their equipment to southern Florida for Operation Andrew Relief, the division was alerted for deployment to Somalia. Approximately 90 days after its first troops had arrived in Florida, elements of the division began to leave the divisions garrison at Fort Drum, New York, for Operation Restore Hope.
