Army pamphlet calls for interagency partnerships
Earlier this year, the Department of the Army released a pamphlet on the subject of engagement. U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Pamphlet (TP) 525-8-5, The U.S. Army Functional Concept for Engagement expands on the ideas of TP 525-3-0, The U.S. Army Capstone Concept and TP 525-3-1, The U.S. Army Operating Concept.
The pamphlet includes a section on special warfare activities which, among other things, calls for Soldiers to be trained to work with host nation security forces, host nation governments, international government organizations, nongovernmental organizations, and interagency partners. The pamphlet also focuses on the interdependence of the Army and their unified action partners, including joint, interagency, and multinational partners.
The pamphlet incorporates building partner capacity tenets and establishes a common framework to capitalize on the integrative opportunities all of the warfighting functions provide to future land operations.
