Reaction of Combat Service Support Troops under Stress: The Small Maintenance Support Unit in a Combat Environment
ARMY COMMAND AND GENERAL STAFF COLLEGE FORT LEAVENWORTH KS
Pagination or Media Count:
This report contains a study of military organizational behavior within an active combat environment. It is directed toward the manager assigned to a small maintenance support unit, and strives to acquaint him or her with the various psychophysiological reactions apparent in combat service support personnel during periods of combat. These reactions, often erratic in nature, are depicted herein as being environmentally interdependent in that the physical environment acts as a stimulus producing predictable behavioral tendencies. It is the authors hypothesis that, given the exigency of a combat situation, personnel within a small maintenance support unit will exhibit a definite pattern of organizational behavior. This study provides a graphic illustration of the aforementioned behavior pattern, and incorporates this pattern into an analytical model of organizational behavior.
