Abstract : The Personnel Service Support in Low Intensity Conflict (PSS in LIC) Study defined and determined PSS roles, missions and levels of support required in LIC operations: counterinsurgency (COIN), combatting Terrorism (CT), peacekeeping operations (PKO) and peacetime contingency operations (PCO). The study began with a literature review which detailed selected LIC operations. It reviewed current doctrine, training, leader development, force structure, materiel, and shortfalls in each area. The study team prepared case studies of five LIC operations and identified PSS activities and needs in those conflicts. Using a questionnaire, study team members interviewed soldiers and leaders providing and using personnel service support in LIC environments. The team identified these LIC soldiers by contacting units known to have been in LIC operations and requesting volunteers to interview. TRADOC Analysis Command, Fort Benjamin Harrison, assisted the team in analyzing the data for conclusions and recommendations....
