Abstract : The monograph provides an overview of the DOD Domestic Action program with emphasis on the Army's specific social and economic conditions within our society. The study centers around an examination of the concept of using military resources in conjunction with other federal agencies to help resolve selected hard-core domestic problems. Opposing opinions and arguments relating to military involvement in social welfare efforts are presented as well as selected examples of on-going programs to organize energies and resources to improve specific conditions.
