The Military Partnerships

The Military Partnerships: Humanitarian/Support Role

The role of the Department of Defense (DoD) is outlined in certain directives. Its function is specific to natural disasters (e.g., hurricanes, floods, and tornadoes) and to man-made disasters (e.g., major toxic spill or terrorist attack). Knowing the DoD’s role in your ERP and as outlined in a Concept of Operations Plan is essential. Moreover, knowing how the DoD will interface with other support sectors will lessen any confusion when a disaster occurs.

  1. Find language regarding military involvement in the NRF. Especially note the command structure. Would the National Guard (if deemed necessary) be called out first? By whom? When would the Guard be called out—give examples. When would a military branch (e.g., the Army) be called out? Remember to cite your sources.
  2. Locate other directives regarding the military’s possible involvement during a national emergency. Under what conditions would the armed services be involved? What would be some of their functions? Remember to cite your sources.

SLP Assignment Expectations

Length: The SLP assignment should be at least 2-3 pages long.

References: At least two references should be included from academic sources (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles). Required readings are included. The references should be cited within the text and also listed at the end of the assignment in the References section (preferably in APA format).

Quoted material should not exceed 10% of the total paper (since the focus of these assignments is critical thinking). Use your own words and build on the ideas of others. When material is copied verbatim from external sources, it must be enclosed in quotes.

Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper.

Format: APA format is recommended (but not required) for this assignment. See Syllabus page for more information on APA format.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity.

The following items will be assessed in particular:

  • Relevance - All content is connected to the question.
  • Precision - Specific question is addressed. Statements, facts, and statistics are specific and accurate.
  • Depth of discussion - Points that lead to deeper issues are presented and integrated.
  • Breadth - Multiple perspectives and references, multiple issues/factors considered.
  • Evidence - Points are well-supported with facts, statistics, and references.
  • Logic - Presented discussion makes sense; conclusions are logically supported by premises, statements, or factual information.
  • Clarity - Writing is concise, understandable, and contains sufficient detail or examples.
