Abstract : The purpose of this research paper is to provide answers to a series of basic questions as a first step in addressing some of the details necessary to implement the Joint Force Land Component Commander (JFLCC) concept in a theater of operations or war. These questions are: What is the role of a JFLCC?; What are the responsibilities of a JFLCC?; What functions must a JFLCC headquarters perform to fulfill its responsibilities?; and How should an Army Force (ARFOR) headquarters be organized to carry out the JFLCC functions? Answers to these questions were obtained by analyzing an assortment of doctrinal publications, monographs, and other documents relating to the JFLCC concept, and by examining this concept during the Army's Prairie Warrior exercise in May 1995. From this assessment, insights relating directly to the role, responsibilities, functions, and organization of a JFLCC headquarters have been identified. The role for a functional land component commander as outlined in Joint Pub 3-0 is viable. He is an operational-level commander who provides unity of command and effort for employing land power to accomplish the operational objectives of the Joint Force Commander (JFC). The JFLCC's overall responsibility is to organize, plan, and direct execution of joint land operations based on the JFC's concept of operations and designation of command relationships. The JFLCC and his staff perform twenty core functions which are critical in conducting successful joint land operations. These functions, adapted from TRADOC Pamphlet 11-9, Blueprint of the Battlefield, and also found in MCM-147-93, Universal Joint Task List relate directly to the six operational level of war operating systems: intelligence, movement and maneuver, firepower, protection, command and control, and support.
