From the Publisher

Part of our value-added professional format series, the Multiservice Procedures for Humanitarian Assistance Operations Field Manual (FM 100-23) covers the role of the U.S. military in humanitarian assistance operations. This FM has been converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction.

Some highlights of the contents:

"Humanitarian assistance (HA) is different things to different audiences. It may be confused with peace operations, given the development of crises in Somalia, the Former Republic of Yugoslavia, and Northern Iraq. Although HA operations may be conducted simultaneously with peace operations, they are different in nature and purpose. United States (US) military forces tasked for HA operations include all active and reserve components of the US Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and, when applicable, the Coast Guard. The objective of these military forces is to execute humanitarian missions when directed by cognizant legal authority. HA includes programs conducted to relieve or reduce the results of natural or man-made disasters or other endemic conditions such as human pain, disease, hunger, or privation that might present a serious threat to life or result in great damage or loss of property. HA provided by US forces is limited in scope and duration. The assistance is designed to supplement or complement the efforts of the host nation civil authorities or agencies that may have the primary responsibility for providing HA - Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) are predominantly European national or international, nonprofit citizen's voluntary organizations. They are involved in such diverse activities as education, technical projects, relief, and refugee and development programs. Examples of NGOs include, but are not limited to, religious; peace, disarmament, environmental, development, and human rights groups."

This manual is produced by Headquarters, US Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC).

As a bonus, this reproduction includes FM-1, The Army Field Manual, a capstone manual containing the vision for the Army - sold separately for $5.99. FM 1 establishes the fundamental principles for employing Landpower. The most important of these are the Army's operational concept and the fundamentals that support it. They form the foundation for all Army doctrine. All Soldiers should understand and internalize them. FM 1 describes the American profession of arms, the Army's place in it, and what it means to be a professional Soldier.

The 'Civilian Control Of The Military' Fallacy

President-elect Donald Trump’s announcement that he intends to nominate retired Marine General James Mattis as his secretary of defense has drawn criticism from those who fear that installing a retired officer in the Pentagon would jeopardize civilian control of the military. Those critics are mistaken. Previous service in uniform shouldn’t disqualify nominees, and, as the Iraq war demonstrated, civilians with no military experience are perfectly capable of making catastrophic mistakes themselves. It is a mystery how a phrase that is both as ungrammatical and incorrect as “civilian control of

Thousands Of Immigrants Who Joined The Military Are Struggling To Get US Citizenship

New screening measures for immigrants who wish to gain U.S. citizenship have delayed thousands of enlisted soldiers, the New York Times reported Saturday, with at least 4,300 Army enlistees alone finding themselves ensnared in lengthy waits for background checks which leave them unable to enter basic training or deploy overseas. The stricter vetting procedures are not the invention of President Donald Trump, but began in the "waning months" of former President Barack Obama's administration. According to the Times report, the affected personnel must remain on U.S. military bases until the revie

An AIDS Charity Fights Builders in L.A.

Nicole Piper Los Angeles, long on sprawl but short on housing stock, is no stranger to development battles. But it’s never seen anything quite like the clash over a proposal on the March 7 municipal ballot, known as Measure S, which would put a two-year halt on most major real estate projects. Spearheading the initiative is the nonprofit AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which has supplied more than 98 percent of the more than $4.5 million spent as of Feb. 18 on pro-S efforts, according to disclosure forms filed with the city. Critics question the motivations of the group, which is in the midst of
