Combat Power in Domestic Operations: The Role of the Military in Support of Civil Authority
As a nation we hold the strength of our military in high esteem. We also value the freedoms and liberties established within our form of government. We expect this strength and this establishment to be mutually supporting. As our nation faces seemingly greater natural disasters and more complex threats to our national security civilian leadership must be able to articulate, in very clear and concise terms, what it expects from the military. What do you expect to happen when military power is used to support civilian authority? Your expectations may not be as accurate as you think.

This informative and motivational presentation offers ideas that can transfer plans into action to keep families safe and ready for disasters without obsessing on the future. The reality is that disasters are becoming more frequent and more devastating but there is hope. People can learn to make choices now that will help them survive later.

Learning to prepare for these real world situations can not only save a life, but also make it easier to rebuild a normal life after survival. The presentation addresses plans, preparations and attitudes about survival.
Government Disaster Response

Far from the dusty binders of “civil-defense” plans of the Cold War, todays disaster response plans are dynamic, well-coordinated and well-rehearsed. Learn how the government plans to save lives, protect property, preserve the economic viability of communities and even preserve our way of government when all we have built has been devastated by disaster.
Rebuilding Postal services in disaster devastated communities
After a disaster one of the most important tools for rebuilding a community is the United State Postal Service. After hurricane Katrina huge areas of the southern US had no postal service.

This entertaining and anecdotal presentation imparts a vital skill for community leaders. In a post-disaster situation the US military can provide a wealth of services and capacities to help protect your community and assist in the recovery of infrastructure and economic viability. But! if civic leaders and emergency managers do not know how to ask for what they need the military will do what they are trained to do rather than what community leaders need them to do. This concise presentation will provide civic leaders and emergency managers with simple and effective techniques to articulate their community’s needs into “mission sets” that the military can act upon.
