Rear Detachments: Capturing and Resourcing How the Army Fights
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
Battalion and brigade rear detachments provide an important command and control function for deployed units, but Army doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel manning, and facilities DOTMLPF for rear detachments may not accurately reflect the way in which the Army fights. After conducting a DOTMLPF analysis, the author recommends updating Army doctrine to reflect the current rear detachment mission and organization, as well as recommending that the Army establish a small Tables of Distribution and Allowances TDA for rear detachments to improve collective training and mission execution.
