Abstract : This article looks at a possible solution to help overcome the impact of time to deploy CONUS-based Combat Service Support (CSS) forces to the European Theater during the first few critical weeks of the next war. As of 30 September 1987, there were about 8617 Department of the Army Civilians (DAC) assigned to U.S. Army, Europe. However, only about 2000 are categorized as Emergency Essential employees considered essential to support theater mobilization and wartime missions. The remaining employees are expected to depart the theater in accordance with established Noncombatant Evacuation Operations rules. Many of these personnel have skills, knowledges and abilities that can be utilized to operate essential military support systems or, as a minimum, provide for a quicker theater transition from forward deployed to fully mobilized status.
