Abstract:

As the U.S. Army ends over a decade of war, Security Force Assistance SFA must become a permanent part of the Army institution. The U.S. Army must look at practical ways to adopt SFA into our core competencies. More importantly, SFA must become a part of the U.S. Army through the Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leadership, Personnel, and Facilities DOTMLPF construct. This action will ensure that language, responsibility, and legislation support a common understanding of how the Army will support the National Military Strategy in the coming years. The U.S. Army must look at the DOTMLPF to ensure unity of purpose, effort, and command to provide the most effective support to the Nation. Creating an integrated Joint, Interagency, Intergovernmental, Multinational team will husband resources while improving the overall SFA construct with which the Department of Defense seeks to build partner capacity.
