Military operations are intricate, dynamic, and fluid. For these reasons, military commanders and planners regularly rehearse, train, exercise, and simulate operational scenarios so they are better prepared to face such challenges in real-world situations. Domestic civil support operations in response to emergencies or disasters present a challenging operational environment full of legal, financial, and even political barriers unique only to domestic missions.

The military reserve policies of the world’s major powers are undergoing sweeping transformations.

This report chronicles the panels and resulting papers from the Seventeenth Annual U.S. Army War College Strategy Conference, held at Carlisle Barracks, PA, in April 2006.
