Abstract:

Our very own Lt Col Mark DeLong was deployed to the combined air operations center to support OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM. DeLong compiled his observations into our cover article, Lessons Learned-ALSAs Contribution to OIF. Every day, from training to combat, errors are costly, as Navy Lt. Chris Hill, a TOPGUN instructor at the Naval Strike and Warfare Center, points out in his article addressing multi-Service Brevity code changes. What would happen if there was just one piece of confusion on the radio because Air Force and Navy aircrew insisted on training to different standards of communication, wrote Hill after attending an ALSA joint working group in January, which focused on updating the current multi-Service Brevity codes. Air Force Lt. Col. Pete Toes Bartos, one of the Action Officers who helped publish the revised BREVITY publication worked with hill to bring together all the ides behind our second article. In our third article, a team of staff officers from the Joint Forces Staff College delve into the ultimate cost of joint interoperability failure in their fratricide article. They do not argue that the elimination of fratricide is difficult, in their article they even allow that some have called it an impossible task, but they assert that if the Services take a truly joint approach to alleviating these causalities they can be overcome. Our final article in this issue deals with the Joint Explosive Ordnance Disposal Task Force Concept. Army LTC Dick A. Larry takes three vignettes from the CountermineCounter Booby Trap Center UXO OPERATION DESERT SHIELD and OPERATION DESERT STORM Lessons Learn Handbook to explain the appropriate organization to handle problems identified.
