Chapter Four Just as the command organization varied in JTF NA and OEF, forward
operating location development also varied. In this chapter, we
discuss timelines for developing forward operating locations and
combat support efforts associated with preparing for the deployment
of forces during OEF, in comparison with JTF NA. We also discuss
implications for future operations and the AEF concept.
FORWARD OPERATING LOCATIONS AND SITE
FINDINGSOur findings are in the following areas:
|• ||FOL timelines|
|• ||Host-nation support and site surveys|
|• ||FOL development and construction|
|• ||Lift and flow issues|
|• ||Executive agency responsibilities in joint operations|
|• ||Contractor support.|
JTF NA FOL Timelines
How long it took to develop FOLs in JTF NA varied greatly, as it did in
OEF. Figure 4.1 compares the average amount of time it took to develop
FOLs in JTF NA and in OEF.
