Abstract : The study discusses requirements for new and modified doctrinal and organizational concepts for prisoner of war operations during the period 1965- 1970. The study proposes modifications and additions to current doctrine for the evacuation, processing and internment of enemy prisoners of war in a theater of operations; it presents concepts for the operation and organization of prisoner of war branch camps and for a Branch United States Prisoner of War Information Center. A small development requirement for a prisoner of war name identification kit is proposed.
