11JointJoint – Connotes activities, operations, organizations, etc., in which elements of two or more Military Departments participate. (JP 0-2)Joint can refer to commands or operations following the definition.Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) is an example of a Joint HeadquartersBottom line up front is we are talking Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard here. The joint world can be confusing to personnel that have never served in a joint environment. In some cases there are static joint command structures where the same component serves in a slot over and over again. In other cases it can be a rotating slot where a different component rotates through after each tour of duty. Joint operations can include component forces working together in an actual or training exercise. They can also include within the task organization subordinate units from other services. For example, a Brigade Task Force can be comprised of two battalions of Army infantry and one battalion of Marines. As we look deeper into this you will see what types of concerns can impact joint teams working together effectively. Each component brings their experience, expertise and differences into the situation.
12InteragencyThe coordination that occurs between agencies of the US government, including the Department of Defense, for the purpose of accomplishing an objective. (JP 3-08)An example of this is when the Army works with the Office of Homeland Security in performing airport security.Ever since 9/11 I believe we have learned what it means to work with interagency coordination. If you read the 9/11 report you can see where in many areas governmental agencies did not work together towards the common good of accomplishing the mission. One of the goals of the JIIM concept is to help us understand that while each agency may have a specific purpose, they work together in accomplishing the bigger mission. It is important for us as Religious Support Team members to learn how interagencies coordinate functions. In performing religious support operations RSTs may be in areas where other government agencies are also working and they can also be parishioners in the RST congregations. You may also have to coordinate with them regarding things like humanitarian assistance operations. It is important to understand their roles and how they interact with military operations.
13IntergovernmentalAn organization created by a formal agreement (e.g., a treaty) between two or more governments. It may be established on a global, regional, or functional basis for wide-ranging or narrowly defined purposes. Formed to protect and promote national interests shared by member states. Examples include the United Nations, NATO, and the African Union.(JP 3-08)As countries work together for a common goal or mission, military forces under those countries must operate within the policy framework established by the treaties and agreements countries establish. Understanding the motives and drives of different nations not only involves understanding the culture, but it also involves understanding the moral, ethical, and religious values that those countries bring into the overall agreement process. RSTs at all echelons must understand the intergovernmental agreements and influences as affected by religion. As RSTs become involved in the role of advising the commander on issues as affected by religion, commanders will call on the RST at the lower levels to explain religion and its implications on the indigenous people in the operational area. Also some alliances and agreements can be formed impacting on some religious factors of the different countries involved. RSTs must understand the limitations of their role and know when to coordinate with other agencies to properly provide the commander with the right information. Also RSTs may serve at embassy levels often being a part of intergovernmental operations.
14MultinationalA collective term to describe military actions conducted by forces of two or more nations, usually undertaken within the structure of a coalition or alliance. (JP 1-02)Combat operations in Afghanistan are being conducted by a multinational coalitionIn today’s world the United States cannot afford to embark on any military operation without the cooperation and assistance of allied nations. Many situations and threats the US faces has global implications. Therefore treaties, alliances and coalitions are the rule rather than the exception. This means that forces from other nations become involved. RSTs at all echelons must learn and understand how participating country’s militaries operate. Especially how the religious support personnel from those countries perform and provide religious support. In some cases lower echelon RSTs may even be stationed on Forward Operating Bases with multinational forces. Many of these countries will have chaplains and assistants serving in their forces. In some cases you may even end up sharing the same religious support facility to perform your mission. Senior RST leaders must plan for such contingencies and establish at the command level policies and memorandums of understanding between intergovernmental militaries to facilitate a smooth capability of the provision of religious support.
15JIIM and Religious Support Operations around the world today and within the confines of the United States are functioning using a JIIM concept. Religious Support Personnel at all echelons must understand how each of elements of JIIM impact on their ability to effectively provide for and manage religious support operations.Applying JIIM considerations in religious support planning is imperative to maximizing the ability of the RST to provide quality religious support. The contemporary operating environment is a dynamic battle space that encompasses the entire JIIM environment. RSTs must broaden their perspective in looking strategic, operational, and tactical in the application of religious support operations.
16Just For Fun Q: What is battlespace? A: A legacy term, replaced by Contemporary Operational Environment (COE).Q: How many MACOM are there?A: None – there are 3 Army Commands (AMC, FORSCOM, and TRADOC).Q: What is the FM the Army and USMC use to conduct operations.A: FM 3-0, Operations
18Operational Environment 12To comply with the CSA’s guidance we projected forward to the year 2017 and created a world situation which required the US to be engaged in all geographical command AORS in various types of conflict but where Irregular War was the dominant form.To get down into the details of our world we created a fictional Islamic country called Redland in the SE part of Europe—Balkans, Ukraine. This country is about five times the size of Iraq with about five times the forces.Forces organized with OTS technology that would be available to any country in the year 2017.We pickup the war in 2017 after a UN brokered ceasefire which effectively partitioned Redland. In the Southern portion of Redland, the US is assisting the newly formed government in establishing stability.Challenges to this stability is an Al-Qaeda like organization called the Global Brotherhood of the Faithful, there are vertical insurgents working against the government, and there are horizontal insurgents competing amongst themselves.The criminal element is taking advantage of this situation and is working both sides.The other half of Redland poses a complex threat because of its substantial conventional capability and use of proxies and third parties to destabilize SEEF. – Redland proper does not recognize the UN agreement and has long term aims to re-annex the SEEF.Globally, the strategic demand stressed the Army’s forces generation model and its strategic agility.To address these issues, we built the game around these issues and used this approach (next)34
19Operational Concept 3 4 2 1 Illustrative A Mission: On order, Combined Joint Task Force - Redland (CJTF-R) attacks to replace the Regime of REDLAND and establish a stable federal republic in order to remove a source of global instability, source of WMD proliferation, and breeding ground for terrorist organizations.Shaping Operation: Multinational Corps – Alpha (MNC-A) clears RED conventional forces in AO 1 and secures PL BLUE in order to establish the conditions for unhindered stability and reconstruction operations.Illustrative234PL BLUEPL AMBERPL GREENAXXX1CJTFRXXXXDCJFSOCCXXACCNCC= strategic raidNote: Component Command locations are notional.Decisive Operations: CJTF-R conducts information operations and unconventional warfare in order to gain international support, to undermine REDLAND government’s legitimacy, to deceive the RED Army about the timing and location of CJTF-R attacks, to disrupt RED defenses, and to destroy WMD. Combined Joint Force Naval Component Command (CJFNCC) and Combined Joint Force Special Operations Component Command (CJFSOCC) conduct strategic raids throughout REDLAND. Combined Joint Force Air Component Command (CJFACC) destroys strategic targets throughout REDLAND , interdicts and disrupts operational targets, and conducts close air support of all land forces.Once the conditions for decisive operations are set, MNC-A will conduct forcible entry and clear RED conventional forces company size and larger from AO 1. As MNC-A advances, MNC-B will secure the MNF-R rear area, conducting stability operations in AO 1 in order to re-establish effective local and regional government, generate indigenous security forces, and conduct foreign internal defense. MNC-B psychological operations will both build popular support for new government institutions within AO 1 and undermine REDLAND government’s legitimacy in areas outside coalition control.Sustaining Operations: Combined Joint Force Theater Sustainment Command (CJFTSC) opens sea ports and airfields, and executes all distribution operations within the theater.Transition: Phase I ends once MNC-A has cleared RED conventional forces company size and larger from AO 1 and secured PL BLUE.Future Full Spectrum Operations: Joint, Interagency, and Multinational forces combine offensive, defensive, and stability or civil support operations simultaneously as part of an interdependent Unified force. They employ synchronized action—lethal and non-lethal, proportional to the mission, and informed by a thorough understanding of the operational environment. Mission command that conveys intent and an appreciation of the unique aspects of the situation guides the adaptive use of the instruments of power.

30From Little Rock to Charlotte From Baltimore to Baton Rouge Afghanistan In ContextUnclassifiedFrom Little Rock to CharlotteIn order to appreciate our battle space and some of the challenges we face, we have overlaid Afghanistan onto the southwest United States to help visualize the scope of Afghanistan. We command and control operations from southwest Virginia to southern Mississippi. Key point is the challenges when moving forces and equipment around the battlefield. In most areas the road network is undeveloped and limited. We are further challenged by the environment with mountain ranges topping at over 20,000 feet, isolating areas in the Central, Eastern, and Northeastern regions.Next slide pleaseFrom Baltimore to Baton RougeUnclassified

Now I will define the complexity of the threat effecting political, security, and economic areas. As you can see threats to the legitimacy of the Government of Afghanistan are more than the Anti Coalition Militia, or ACM groups, Taliban, Al Qaida, and Hizb-e Islami Gulbiddin. Tribal and ethnic infighting threatens stability through a continuation of long held ethnic and tribal animosities. Loyalty for Afghans lies first at the family and tribal level. Narco-trafficking threatens security through corruption of government officials and attacks on Government of Afghanistan security apparatus in order to secure lab sites or smuggling routes. Porous borders are a major contributor to a lack of security and revenue as ACM , narco-trafficers, and powerbrokers exploit limited the controlled borders. The complexity of our operating environment often poses challenges in determining the cause or motivation of an incident. More often than not, it is not clear and takes some time and subsequent reporting before we can determine just who was behind a given incident – whether it was insurgent related, drug related, a land dispute, or ongoing ethnic/tribal rivalries.Next slide pleaseILLEGAL COMMERCEREGIONAL LEADERSPOROUS BORDERSLACK OF INFRASTRUCTUREPAKISTAN REGIME CHANGE

57JIIM and the Chaplain Assistant By SGM Stephen StottGood Day. Today we will discuss the issues that chaplain assistants, religious program specialist and other enlisted support personnel must consider when working in a JIIM environment. It is not my intention to go deeply into the definitions of JIIM since that has been covered in other briefings. My focus is to discuss how we will operate in that environment. NEXT SLIDE
58Outline Pre-Deployment Issues During Deployment Concerns Post-Deployment IssuesSummaryHere is the outline of what we will discuss. To start off we will take a look at the JIIM definition then we will look at things the assistant should consider before, during and after a deployment. Most of what we will discuss will be common sense types of issues that can apply in the normal operating environment for a individual service components training cycle. However as we look at these things we will highlight how the JIIM impacts on these issues.
59Pre-Deployment Issues Understand Scope of MissionPlanning with a JIIM mindsetSupporting DocumentationCoordinationCollaborationCommunicationDefine RS Role in each of the facets of JIIM at your echelonUnits preparing for deployment must understand that they are going into a combat environment that has many foreign elements to what they are used to in training. Many division size elements are being task organized in a different types of formations. Some may have active and reserve component forces working together. Others may have Army and Marine battalions in their formations while others may have an Air Force or Navy detachment assigned for a specific mission in support of a joint operation. RST leaders must learn to incorporate JIIM implications in the early planning stages of religious support for their troops and area of operations. As we work through the different phases of a battle, different elements of JIIM come into play and RSTs must know how to interact with each of the JIIM elements. Even in operations at the battalion level commanders and their staffs may have to deal with daily operational situations that impact on all aspect of JIIM. Subordinate level RSTs may have to function as subject matter experts regarding religions and interact, for example with small government agency teams operating in the battalions operational area.
60Pre-Deployment Issues Joint Manning Document (JMD)Religious Support PlanUnderstanding strengths of your assetsUnderstanding how each component operates in their environmentAdjusting your plan to maximize capability effectivenessJoint units are manned via the Joint Manning Document or the JMD. Senior level RSTs at the Combatant Commander and Regional Command levels assist lower echelon joint units in developing the JMD based on mission requirements. It is important that RSTs understand how the JMD is put together and also what types of chaplains and assistants go into their formations. For instance, why do you put an Air Force Tsgt at a particular position instead of an Army SSG. Chaplain Assistants really must understand and train on how not only the different components of active and reserve forces function but also how the other services, agencies, and governments function. Of course the mainstay of the planning process for us is the religious support plan. Early in the planning stages RSTs must consider JIIM across the whole spectrum of the plan. At the higher echelons it is imperative that policy and guidelines are set in how to perform certain tasks and functions in the JIIM environment. This ensures that RSTs at the lower levels have a clear understanding in how to coordinate and properly advice the commander.
61Pre-Deployment Issues Pre-Deployment ConferenceIdentification of JIIM Players in AOCommunication with JIIM Points of ContactUnderstanding how daily operations run in a JIIM environmentInclude JIIM in the pre-deployment training for the teamSenior RSTs in charge of a JTF should conduct a pre-deployment conference with all identified major subordinate commands. Where possible they should invite applicable agency and government representatives in areas with they will work together in religious support missions. This will give the senior RST the opportunity to discuss the religious support plan and also foster an environment of mutual understanding early on in the team process. By incorporating in both the training and meeting process all aspects of JIIM where applicable it will help RSTs to become comfortable and informed thus facilitating mission accomplishment.
62During Deployment Work the Religious Support Plan Make necessary adjustments based on changes to the missionContinue to trainValidate planned JIIM contacts and update as necessaryCounsel subordinates within the standards of their individual componentConstant evaluation of the RSP is essential to keeping it current and relevant on the ever changing contemporary operating environment. It is important to have staff members dedicated to the future operations planning and to adjust the RSP to meet new contingencies on the battlefield. Also utilize joint staff in concert with their strengths. Each component brings a unique perspective to the team. Don’t try to make your joint staff turn green for example. Let them operate within the normal standards to which they are used to.
63During Deployment Cross train to standard in all functional areas Develop all members of the team for excellence and professional developmentUse battle drills as a means of working issuesEducate the whole team on implications of JIIM in all missionsEnsure all members of the team understand the functions of all division areas. Given emergencies any member of the team should be able to cover down on another area when needed. Initiate a system of battle drills and practice, practice, practice. Continually educate the team on all aspects of JIIM so that they understand who different agencies and organizations impact on the military’s mission.
64During Deployment Strategic Concerns Operational Concerns Tactical ConcernsKnow which is your laneEducate your team to understand all three as it relates to JIIMCoordinate with proper sections when working JIIM issues
65During Deployment Differences in deployment schedules Reports to include efficiency and evaluationsAwards and decorationsPreparing for your replacementsContinuity FilesBattle BooksRe-supplyAll organizations within the JIIM world come with their own set of rules. Learn what those rules are and apply them when applicable to your daily operation. Understand how staff member’s evaluation work in accordance with their component. Maintain a set system for tracking and have solid continuity files and battle books for an ever changing staff due to high turn around.
66Post Deployment Maintain Contact After Action Reviews Identify new or adapting Techniques, Tactics, and Procedures (TTPs)Inform all service component schoolsImprove Battle Books and Standing Operating Procedures (SOPs)Upon redeployment it is important to maintain contact with agencies and organizations you worked with during the deployment. This fosters a continued healthy working environment in the JIIM world. Make sure that you highlight JIIM implications and issues in your AARs. Inform the service component schools about expected changes as affected by JIIM issues. Continue to update and improve on SOPs and battle books.
67Post Deployment Revise JMD based on mission changes Continue to train with a JIIM mindsetInvolve JIIM POCs in training exercises or conferencesRevise the RSP based on JIIMEnsure all JIIM team members are involved in reunion trainingPrepare for the next deploymentAlways review Joint force structure and update as appropriate due to changes and mission requirements. Continue to keep JIIM incorporated in all applicable aspects of training.
68SummaryTo win the global war on terrorism we will have to work together. Religious Support Teams must understand how the JIIM environment works and know how to coordinate, collaborate, and communicate across the contemporary operating environment to ensure all authorized personnel receive the best quality religious support they deserve.
