Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities, and Policy.Phew, what a mouthful, and that's not something I say often.
Who are we? How the Army, Navy, Air Force service perceives itself to be?So, doctrine is neither operations nor tactics. Instead, it serves as a conceptual framework uniting all three levels of warfare covering operational, strategic, and tactical issues. These each have the following defined:
What do they do? What mission are they being called to carry out?
How do they do what they are being asked to do? How the mission is to carried out?
How did we do they do it in the past? How the mission has been carried out in history?
And of course, doctrine will also answer other things not covered by the above questions.
The fundamental principles.Doctrine provides a guideline to the activities a unit undertakes, the actions expected of it, and describes how things are done, but does not prescribe what must be done. Which is a long preamble describing the process when one is creating a new type of unit for the military to use.
Tactics, techniques, and procedures.
Terms and symbols.
