Abstract : The application of Operational Art to domestic disaster relief operations is analyzed using Hurricane Andrew relief operations as the test vehicle. Operational Art is discussed in five parts: The Theater Organization; Forces' Operational Organization; Methods of Forces' Operational Employment; Principles of Forces' Operational Employment; Operational Logistics and Sustainment. The author validates the suitability of Operational Art for disaster relief operations and calls for use of the Operational Art's five principal components by military officers and civilian managers.
