Examining Apparent Shortcomings in the Army’s SFA Mission Following Operation IRAQI FREEDOM

Beginning in 2013, the U.S. Army began an effort to "engage regionally and respond globally". A central tenant of this strategy, building upon nationally strategic guidance, is the necessity to build partner capacity. After examining the U.S. Army’s mission in Operation IRAQI FREEDOM from 2003-2010, it became apparent that institutional and organizational shortcomings remain in the Army today, particularly within the Army’s core formation – the brigade combat team (BCT).

This monograph examines the Army’s role in conducting SFA in Iraq, drawing key lessons for the Army’s experience there, and then provides recommendations as to how the Army can better optimize the BCT to conduct SFA, while retaining its core mission to fight and win America’s wars.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
LIAM WALSH is currently a student at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, KS. He was commissioned as an infantry officer after graduating from the U.S. Military Academy in 2006. His first assignment was at Fort Campbell, KY, from where he deployed as a platoon leader to northwest Baghdad for 14 months in support of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM during the “surge.” After completion of the Maneuver Captains Career Course in 2010, he was assigned to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA, where he twice deployed in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM to southern Afghanistan; in 2010 as an assistant operations officer and in 2012 as both a Stryker rifle company headquarters and headquarters company commander. From 2013 to 2015, Captain Walsh attended graduate school at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. He holds a bachelor’s degree in military history from West Point and a master’s degree in law and diplomacy from the Fletcher School.

Audience

Active duty, especially brigade combat team, soldiers may be most interested in this resource that provides analytical case studies of past Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom missions to propose other approaches for global security through the US Army’s partner alliances and expansions of the advisory role as a necessary method to address conflict prevention and American interests with partner nations and allies.  Additionally, students pursuing coursework in military studies to include international relations, international security policy, military strategy, and military history may appreciate this text for guidance with tactical international operations.
