Abstract:

Doctrine must be clear and logical. However, the current joint doctrine model, known as the range of military operations, is confusing and ambiguous and should be replaced. It is time to move beyond the range of military operations in search of a model that properly portrays the Armed Forces as the military instrument of national power. Toward that end, a new model entitled the military operational framework is proposed here. It signifies a return to basics in combat and noncombat operations, as well as the continuing preparation needed for both.
