Abstract : The Force Deployment Rock Drill exercise was conducted at Fort Eustis, Virginia from 18 to 22 November 1996. The sponsor of the exercise was the Deputy Chief of Staff, Logistics, Headquarters, U.S. Army; the executing organization was the U.S. Army Transportation School. The objectives of the exercise were to educate the deployment community on Reception, Staging, Onward Movement, and Integration (RSOI); refine command relationships; demonstrate force structure impacts on time-phased force and deployment data (TPFDD) flow; and refine the strategy for improving force projection. The Institute for Defense Analyses assisted the Transportation School in planning and conducting the exercise. This document is the After Action Report containing an assessment of the exercise and recommendations for future exercises.
