The military s relationship with the civilian world has progressed immeasurably in the last 4,000 years. The early use of military force demonstrated a violent application of one-way communication, with little concern for the civilian response. History has modified the relationship between the military and the civilian communities around them, both on and off the battlefield. In order to facilitate future communication between civilian and military civ-mil communities, interacting agencies must utilize the four phases of development of civ-mil communication to continuously and widely disseminate primers of understanding, along with prioritizing the continued maintenance of the network of networks of civ-mil relationships. This paper will present historical examples which characterize the evolution of civ-mil communication, discuss the four phases of communication development, and present categories of civ-mil interactions which will facilitate future relationships and lead to smoother interagency operations.
