SOURCE DOCUMENT ADVISORY

Digital images were created from printed source
documents that, in many cases, were photocopies of
original materials held elsewhere. The quality of
these copies was often poor. Digital images reflect
the poor quality of the source documents.

Where possible images have been manipulated to
make them as readable as possible. In many cases
such manipulation was not possible. Where
available, the originals photocopied for publication
have been digitized and have been added,
separately, to this collection.

Searchable text generated from the digital images,
subsequently, is also poor. The researcher is
advised not to rely solely upon text-search in this
collection.

MEMORANDUM FOR All Florida National Guard Commanders

SUBJECT: Florida National Guard Desert Shield Update


1. This is the first of a series of information updates to be
furnished you as circumstances change in the Desert Shield Operation
as it may effect the Florida National Guard. This information will
be furnished as a numbered set of Special Command Information
Bulletins. The first of these bulletins is furnished herewith.

2. The Command Information portion of the attached bulletin lists
guidance for those units who are candidates for mobilization. My
guidance is that we be as ready as possible in the event we are
called upon to perform the mission of defending our country for which
we have trained so hard.

3. We will place emphasis on our shortfalls and learn from the
experience of others as we proceed with our preparation. Our
analysis today dictates that we prioritize our action in the areas of
Family Support; Nuclear Biological Chemical Equipment and Training;
Up-to-date Panographic X-rays; Sure Pay for all; Drug Testing; and
Single Parent Plans. My staff has furnished further guidance on
these special emphasis topics in the enclosed bulletin. Any
volunteers for mobilization and cross-leveling of personnel and/or
MOSs must be coordinated by this Headquarters.

4. This is a Florida National Guard Team effort. We want to
communicate this to all Soldiers and Airmen. Request you do all
possible to assist in disseminating this information to all personnel
on a timely basis when received.

AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 1 31 August 1990


COMMAND INFORMATION (TAG):
1. Due to the recent events in South West Asia, the President has

called upon the Armed Forces of the United States to participate in a

United Nations effort to protect Saudi Arabia and other countries

from further Iraq aggression. This effort requires the total

involvement of all services to include the call-up of selected

National Guard units. No Florida National Guard units have been

alerted or mobilized at this time.

2. Some units of the Florida National Guard located throughout the

state have been placed on a planning'list known as a Time Phased

Force Deployment List. This list directs selected units to review

contingency plans and increase the unit's readiness. This means the

units are reviewing individual personnel and medical records to

)assure that all files are up-to-date, unit personnel alert rosters

are current, and all equipment and vehicles are fully operational.

Essentially, these are requirements that all National Guard units

continually meet as part of their state mission to support civilian

authorities in cases of natural disaster, humanitarian assistance,

and law enforcement purposes. The National Guard is also the

principal Federal Reserve Combat Force and must comply with the

Army's "Total Force" Policy requiring the Guard to meet and perform

to exactly the same mission standards as our full-time Active Duty

Army. This planning list is subject to change daily and the number

of units on the list nationwide could change.

3. To assist these units in completing Phase I Mobilization, a team

chief from.the TAG staff has been assigned to each MACOM with candi-

COMMAND INFORMATION (TAG):
4. In support of the preparation efforts, all commanders are requested

to review scheduled activities and cancel any nonessential requirements

not in support of mobilization. As an example, this headquarters has

cancelled Command Inspections scheduled thru December 1990. Each

commander should evaluate existing workloads and re-prioritize in

accordance with current situations.

5. Each unit commander should continue readiness training to sustain at

'least C-3 rating. Those units at C-4 or C-5 should continue training

plans to obtain C-3. Those units on planning list should re-evaluate

any MTO&E line items that have been exempted from USR reporting, taking

into consideration deployment mission and area of operation.

6. This headquarters is working closely with NGB and DoA to determine

) if scheduled MTO&E reorganizations should be executed prior to

mobilization. This review is unit by unit and affected units will be

advised ASAP. Again, all coordination for alert, mobilization and any

cross-leveling of personnel and/or equipment must be processed thru

chain of command to this headquarters.


7. All commanders are reminded to emphasize OPSEC/COMSEC as required.

All STU III telephone sets are to remain at assigned military

installations/locations. Any removal or relocation must be approved by

this headquarters, Attention: DOIM. This headquarters has secure

facsimile capabilities, however, MACOM headquarters do not have secure

facsimile equipment at this time.

8. For planning purposes, the MACOM Training Briefing to TAG-FL for

} TY91 scheduled for 14-16 September at CBTS is still planned, as well as

the quarterly MACOM meeting scheduled in Tampa, 28-29 October.

a. In the event your unit were to be called to Active Duty,
one of your main concerns would be your dependents. You should
sit down with them now and be sure they fully understand all
aspects of the day to day family business, i.e., mortgage
payments, car payments, insurance, etc. Also, you should be in
contact with your unit to insure that you have an up to date,
accurate DD Form 1172, Application for Uniformed Service
Identification Card, DEERS Enrollment on file and that your
spouse has a DA Form 5431, Army Guard/Reserve Family Member
Identification Card (the pink card). This card plus a copy of
your mobilization order will insure their entitlement to all
dependent benefits for up to 180 days after the call to Active
Duty.

b. Should your unit be called, our current plans are to open
Family Assistance Centers (FACs) at or near your unit. These
centers will be staffed and will provide information, guidance
and assistance to dependents after the call to Active Duty.
Your unit's Family Support Group will be a vital part of this
effort. If your spouse or family members have not joined this
group, now might be an ideal time to contact your unit for
information on becoming a member of the Unit Family Support
SGroup.

c. POC is 1LT Sterling W. Heymen, ext 360, for Family
Assistance matters and WO1 Bobbi Hall, ext 312 for DD Form 1172
(DEERS) matters.

2. Panographic X-rays:

a. Panographic X-rays have been a major stumbling block in
trying to get units ready for mobilization. Even with the
enormous amount of emphasis placed in this area by NGB and this
Headquarters, we are finding units lacking over 40% of their
required panographic X-rays. Panographic X-rays are obtained in
the following ways:

(1) Coordination with Medical Operations, ext 3106, for units
that regularly train at Camp Blanding.

(2) Coordination with Medical Treatment Facilities (MTFs) at
out of state installations where Florida units attend annual
training or other types of training.

(3) Coordination with in state Active Component MTFs (i.e.,
Navy or Air Force Hospitals) during IDT.

(4) As a last resort, coordination with MILP-MED for funding
not to exceed $20.00 per original X-ray or duplicate to be
accomplished at civilian facilities.

MILITARY PERSONNEL (MILP):

b. When the duplicate X-rays are submitted to MILP-MED, each
soldier's dental record will be coded with RED tape in the "R"
block located on the top edge of the dental record (DD Form
3444). The SF 603/603A will be annotated in Item 17, Duplicate
Panograph forwarded to CPSF on (date). When the Acceptance
Report confirmation document is received by the unit from this
Headquarters, the tape code will be changed to GREEN in the "R"
block. The SF 603/603A, Item 17, will be annotated CPSF
enrollment confirmed on (date). The red and green tape was
furnished to each unit by this Headquarters.

c. Each unit will receive, in the near future, an
alphabetical listing of soldiers with an X-ray on file at the
Central Panographic Storage Facility in Monterey, CA. Each unit
will use this listing to ensure that a panographic X-ray is on
file at CPSF for every one of their soldiers. Soldiers
attending Basic Training/Advanced Individual Training will have
a panographic X-ray forwarded from the Reception Station to
CPSF. These soldier's dental record jackets should be checked
upon return from BT/AIT for proper tape coding and annotation of
the SF 603/603A. If the proper tape/annotation has not been
accomplished, it should be done immediately.

b. As of this date only 57% of the total number of soldiers
found positive for illegal drugs have been discharged. Of the
remainder, over half (43) of the cases were tested over 3 months
ago and discharge action has not been received at this
headquarters.

c. In accordance with reference lb above, all requests for
discharge for soldiers who test positive will be forwarded to
MILPD NLT 90 days from the date of notice to the unit
commander. Extensions of this suspense date will be in writing
only and the unit commander must provide cogent reasons for a
delay.

d. Discharge processing will be in accordance with references
Listed above. Questions may be directed to MSG Hill, ext 340.

accompany an alerted unit to their mobilization station. These
soldiers will be transferred from their unit of assignment one
day prior to M-day and assigned to the next higher headquarters
to continue discharge processing.

f. POC is MSG John P. Hill, ext 340.

4. Family Care Plans:

a. AR 600-20 requires commanders of Reserve Component
soldiers, regardless of the soldier's rank, to conduct or
arrange for Family Care Plan Counseling and requires a Family
Care Plan be completed when any of the following conditions
apply:

(1) A pregnant soldier who:

(a) Has no spouse; is divorced, widowed, or separated; or is
residing without her spouse.

(b) Is married to another service member of the Active
Component (AC) or Reserve Component of any service.

(2) A soldier who has no spouse, is divorced, widowed, or
separated or is residing without his or her spouse, who has
joint or full legal and physical custody of one or more children
under age 18 or who has adult non-spouse dependent family
members) incapable of self-care regardless of age.

(3) A soldier categorized as half of a dual service couple of
the AC or RC who has joint or full legal and physical custody of
one or more children under age 18 or who has adult, non-spouse
dependent family members) incapable of self-care regardless of
age.

b. It is the primary responsibility of the soldier to
implement the Family Care Plan and thus insure the care of
his/her dependent family members. The DA Form 5304-R (Family
Care Plan Counseling Checklist) and the DA Form 5305-R (Family
Care Plan) are the means by which soldiers identify provisions
for the care of their family members) when military duties
prevent the soldier from doing so. It will include proof that
guardians agree to provide care and have the legal authority and
means to do so. Proof will consist of attachments to the DA
Form 5305-R such as: DA Form 5841-R (Special Power of Attorney
for Guardianship) or equivalent delegation of legal control, DA
SForm 5840-R (Certificate of Acceptance as Guardian), DD Form
1172 (Application for Uniform Service Identification Card) if
needed, and a DA Form 1341 (JUMPS Allotment Authorization).

SUBJECT: Public Affairs Guidance for Alert and Mobilization



1. It is reasonable to assume that there will be widespread state
and national media interest if any Florida unit(s) is alerted or
mobilized. It is National Guard and the Adjutant General's policy to
provide the maximum amount of information possible with the need for
operational, personal and family security for our Guardsmen.

2. It is imperative that we carefully CHOOSE OUR WORDS and the
context in which we use them. They could well impact the outcomes on
many fronts--positive or negative. General guidance to help you with.
this effort is as follows:

a. Media Interviews: Media requests for interviews following
the announcement should be handled as soon as possible. Some
interview techniques are outlined below:

1) Do confirm the affected units and approximate number of
Guardsmen involved.

2) Do describe the units general mission--communications, supply,
maintenance, infantry--the types of missions you can perform and the
military skills involved.

3) Do describe the units training capabilities.

4) Do detail the units past history and organization.

5) Do recognize the sacrifices being made by families, friends
and local employers.

6) Do describe generically the types of equipment the unit
uses--quality, capability and how it is used.

7) Do speak on matters which you have been authorized to discuss.

8) Do speak on matters which you have first hand knowledge and
experience.

9) Don't speculate on future events of the unit.

10) Don't divulge any unit readiness data.

Official Media Statement: Concerning Florida National Guard
Alert Status


Some units of the Florida National Guard located throughout the
state have been placed on a planning list.

This list directs selected units to review contingency plans and
increase the unit's readiness as necessary. This means the
units are reviewing individual personnel and medical records to
assure that all files are up to date, unit personnel alert
rosters are current, and all equipment and vehicles are fully
operational.

Essentially these are requirements that all National Guard units
continually meet as part of their State mission to support
civilian authorities in cases of natural disaster, humanitarian
assistance and law enforcement purposes.

The National Guard is also the principal Federal Reserve Combat
Force and must comply with the Army's "Total Force" policy
requiring the Guard to meet and perform to exactly the same
mission standards as our full-time active duty Army.

SThis planning list is subject to change daily and the number of
units on the list nationwide could change.

The Florida Army National Guard is not on an alert or standby,
nor has any unit been activated or mobilized.

SPECIAL STAFF:
JUDGE ADVOCATE




AR 350-216, paragraph 6, requires that each MACOM commander ensure that
all members of the command are a knowledgable of the Hague Regulations and
Geneva Convention commensurate with the soldiers responsibilities. To
implement this policy, the regulation further requires that an annual
briefing be given to all soldiers concerning the Law of War. This briefing
should be conducted by a Judge Advocate duly qualified pursuant to Article
27(b), UCMJ. MACOMs needing JAG support to fulfill this obligation may
contact MAJ Henry T. Swann, III, Staff Judge Advocate, State Arsenal.


The Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940 is a Federal Statute
which mandates certain rights to military personnel while serving on Active
Duty. The Act must be implemented by the soldier. Although the Act will not
absolve the soldier of liability, the law will stop certain civil action
involving the soldier if the soldier is unavailable to attend to those legal
matters due to Active Duty. Any National Guard person activated and
involved in civil proceedings should contact a Judge Advocate for
assistance. If assistance is not available, the soldier may write directly
to the Court in which a civil action is pending notifying the Court of
his/her Active Duty status.


Many soldiers have questions concerning the desirability of a Last Will
and Testament. If a soldier is activated his domicile will remain the State
of his residence regardless of his geographic location. Under Florida Law,
jointly owned property passes irrepective of the provisions of a Last Will
and Testament. Accordingly, to the extent that a husband and wife, or to the
extent that a soldier owns property jointly with right of survivorship with
any other person, a Will will not change or alter that Title. In fact, such
jointly owned property is not probated through the Courts but passes
immediately upon death to the survivor. Therefore, although a Will is
desirable, in many cases, for many soldiers, it will not change the
disposition of their property as most soldiers own property jointly with
either their spouse or another person. (Jointly owned property may include
real estate, automobiles, joint bank accounts, etc.). Accordingly, while it
is not disadvantages to have a Will, in many cases, it is superfluous as a
person's property passes pursuant to joint title and not pursuant to a Last
Will and Testament. Questions may be directed to a local Judge Advocate or
MAJ Henry T. Swann, SJA, State Arsenal.


Legal issues concerning the above are addressed during annual
mobilization exercises. Units needing additional JAG support may request the
same by contacting their MACOM. Any MACOM without organic JAG support may
request that support from the State Staff Judge Advocate, State Arsenal.

)LITARY PERSONNEL (MILP):

)1. Immunizations for Mobilization:

Due to confusion over which immunizations are required for
National Guard soldiers, the following information is intended
to clarify the requirements.

(a) All FLARNG soldiers should have received the basic
series of immunizations during enlistment processing/BT/AIT.
These are: polio, measles, smallpox, typhoid, and
tetanus/diptheria. Of these, typhoid requires re-immunization
every 3 years and tetanus/diptheria every 10 years. In
addition to this basic series, units with deployment dates of
D+30 or less and all AGR soldiers must have an annual influenza
immunization during the Oct Apr time frame. Information
concerning the 1990-1991 influenza immunization will be
disseminated to unit level upon receipt from NGB.

(b) There are no additional immunization requirements
at home station for Operation Desert Shield. Any additional
immunization requirements will be accomplished at Mob Station,
if necessary, for deployment OCONUS.

2. HIV Testing Requirements for Mobilization:

In addition to the basic series of immunizations outlined in
paragraph l(a) above, each soldier must have received a NEGATIVE
HIV test within 24 months. Commanders are reminded that HIV
POSITIVE soldiers are not deployable. Due to the 24 month
requirement and the difficulty in acquiring additional tests on
short notice, it is imperative that all FLARNG units test every
soldier possible on the date scheduled by contract. Changes to
the contract will not be routinely made for units due to
Operation Desert Shield. If FLARNG units are alerted/mobilized,
soldiers without a negative HIV test within 24 months will be
tested at the MOB Station.

38 USC 2021, 2024

Factsheet



FACTS


The Veterans' Reemployment Law (VRRL) was first enacted in 1940 and most recently amended
in 1986. It gives Reservists and National Guard members the right to time off from their civilian
jobs to participate in military training and protects them from discharge or discrimination because
of their military obligations. The VRRL also applies to any person who gives up a civilian job to
enter active duty, voluntarily or involuntarily, in peacetime or wartime. Such a person is entitled
to return to their civilian job and to receive pay raises, promotions, pension credit and other
seniority benefits, as if they had been continuously employed, provided they meet the VRRL's
eligibility criteria.
This fact sheet discusses areas of concern to all reservists and members of the National Guard
Entering active duty.


APPLICABILITY AND ENFORCEMENT


Veterans' Reemployment Rights Law applies to federal, state and local governments, and to
private employers, regardless of organization size. The Veterans' Employment and Training
Service (VETS), U.S. Department of Labor, is responsible for enforcing the VRRL. The VETS
national office telephone is (202) 523-8611.


ACTIVE DUTY FOR TRAINING OR
INACTIVE DUTY TRAINING

1. The service member must request a leave of absence when military training or duty will conflict
with civilian employment. The civilian employer has no right to deny the request. Written notice
is not required but recommended. There is no requirement to present written orders when
requesting leave from work.
S2. The employer is not required to pay the service member when he or she is absent due to
military obligations. The employer cannot require the service member to use earned vacation
time for military duties.
3. The service member must report back to the civilian job at the first regularly scheduled shift
after the military obligation is completed, plus any required travel time.

JBLIC AFFAIRS (ADMIN):

) Q. But if an employee was promoted right before the call-up, or promised a raise, does
he still get the new job and additional money when he returns?
A. He should receive a job in line with the promised promotion and raise.
Q. Does that apply if the reservist volunteered for emergency duty, instead of being
ordered to report?
A. Yes. Volunteers' jobs are protected in the same manner as those called up.
Q. How long do I have to hold open a job for reservists?
A. At least four years, and that can be extended by federal request if the emergency lasts.

Q. Do I still have insurance responsibility for my reservist?
A. No. Government insurance kicks in when soldiers go on active duty. Medical insurance
for their dependents is also covered by Uncle Sam. Dependents' dental insurance isn't
covered by the government, but continuing any such civilian program is the employer's
decision.

Q. If a reservist returns so badly disabled that he can't hold down his previous job, do 1
still have to hire him?
A. Yes, and offer him a job he can perform that's as close in pay, rank and seniority to the
one he left.

Q. If a reservist is called up merely to serve in the motor pool across town, and doesn't
Sgo to the Middle East, do I still have to offer him a job later?
A. Yes.

Q. If the crisis that spawned the call-up ends, and the reservist takes a liking to active
duty, do I still have to keep a job open?
A. Yes, for as much as four years after emergency duty called.
Q. How much notice do my reservists have to give me that they're leaving?
A. None. For strategic and security reasons, if they receive military orders, they may be
required to leave without telling you.

Q. When my reservists are released from duty after the crisis, can I require them to get
right back to work?
A. No. They may take as much as 90 days of unpaid leave time, as they wish.
Q. May I for budgetary reasons wait 90 days before putting them back on the payroll?
A. No. If they want to return the day they're off military duty, you're required to take them.

Q: What if a reservist gets into some kind of legal trouble in the military the kind of
thing that might have influenced me against hiring him in the first place?
A: If the reservist has an honorable discharge paper, he's qualified to come back. Otherwise,
the employer might be able to refuse him.

Q: What if I sell my company to someone else while the reservists are gone?
\A: The new owner inherits the company's obligations to reservists.

Q. What if my business goes into bankruptcy court while the reservist is gone, or I go
into another business he doesn't know much about?
A: You're still obligated to hire him if you have payroll.

CIVIL RELIEF ACT OF 1940

(50 USC Appendix 501, 510, 515)

Fact Sheet




FACTS

The Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940 (SSCRA), as amended, was passed by Congress
to provide protection for individuals entering or called to active duty in the military service.
Reservists and the members of the National Guard are protected under the SSCRA while on active
duty. The protection begins with the date of entering active duty and generally terminates within
30 to 90 days after the date of discharge from active duty.
This fact sheet discusses areas of concern.to reservists and members of the National Guard
) entering active duty as published by National Guard Bureau, Public Affairs, Washington, D.C.



TERMINATION OF LEASES

1. A lease covering premises occupied for dwelling, professional, business, agricultural or
similar purposes may be terminated by a service member if the following two conditions are
met:
a. The lease was executed by the member before he or she entered active duty;
and
b. The lease premises have been occupied for the above purposes by the member
or his/her dependents.
2. To terminate the lease, the member must deliver written notice to the landlord at any time
after entry on active duty or receipt of orders for active duty. Oral notice is not sufficient. The
effective date of termination is determined as follows:
a. For month to month rentals, the termination becomes effective 30 days after the
first date on which the next rental payment is due subsequent to the date when the notice of
Termination is delivered. For example, if the rent is due on the first day of each month, and
notice is mailed on 1 August, then the next rental payment is due and payable on 1
September. Thirty days after that date would be 1 October, the effective date of termination.

JUDICIAL PROCEEDINGS


1. A service member who is involved in judicial proceedings as either a plaintiff or defendant,
is entitled to a stay of those proceedings if it is determined that the service member's ability to
prosecute an action is "materially effected" by reason of his/her active duty service.
a. A service member may request a stay of proceedings during the period of
active duty or within 60 days thereafter.
b. "Material effect" is usually shown when the service member can prove that
military duties prevent him/her from appearing in court at the designated time. However,
courts require service members to be diligent in their attempts to appear in court, and will be
reluctant to grant long-term stays of proceedings.

GENERAL:

COMMAND INFORMATION:

a. Preparation for possible mobilization of units within the
Florida National Guard continues to be extremely successful. An
updated status was provided by the Task Force Commanders to the
Command Group yesterday and all units are progressing as
scheduled.

b. The mobilization accomplishments reflect good coordination,
support and working relations between this headquarters, the
MACOMs and individual units. The task of preparing for
mobilization has been demanding at all levels, caused changes in
priorities and created the need to reevaluate workloads. All
commanders, staff officers and NCOs are commended for the
professional manner in which this preparation has progressed.

c. It is extremely encouraging to see the total involvement at
all levels to include the Family Support groups. Every effort
must be made to keep the families totally involved and fully aware
of the impact upon being called to active duty.

d. This past weekend fully demonstrated what the Florida
National Guard can do with good planning and coordination within
each functional command/staff. Just to highlight some
accomplishments, physical exams, JAG support for wills and powers
of attorney, assistance in SURE Pay and the ever constant problems
of ongoing immunization requirements were completed from Ft.
Lauderdale to Pensacola and points in between. At the same time,
good productive training in NBC, mission essential tasks and
maintenance were conducted. All this could only happen because of
committed, dedicated and totally professional Guardsmen Army and
.Air coming together to meet the challenge.

e. We must also recognize the family members and the
civilians/employees that have volunteered their assistance and
support a true team effort.

1. Public Affairs Briefs For Desert Shield Units:

The following information is an excerpt from Message Number
0770-01F44D dtd SEP 90, subject same as above.

a. Saudi Arabia has now opened the country to selected media
representatives, increasing the likelihood of short notice media
visits to deployed units.

b. The influx of media makes interviews with individual
service members more likely and the requirement for adherence to
security guidelines of particular importance. To that end,
personnel should be well briefed on guidelines already published
as well as the following:

(1) Primary issues to emphasize in media encounters are the
unclassified generic unit mission and OPS/training in support of
that mission. Service members should confine their comments to
unclassified generalities without revealing information which
could jeopardize current or future operations.

(2) Specifics such as numbers of troops, their locations, and
dispositions as well as capabilities of either U.S. or Iraqi
forces will not be discussed.

(3) Do not respond to "What if?" or hypothetical questions
that cause you to speculate on future operations and/or military
activities in the area.

(4) Do not discuss possible weaknesses, shortfalls, or
problem areas.

c. Remind interviewees that all interviews or discussions
with the media are on the record. If you don't want it in
print, DON'T SAY IT!

2. Protocol in Southwest Asia:

The following information is an excerpt from Message Number
035F-01FBDE dtd Aug 90, SUBJECT: Commander's Call on Operations
in Southwest Asia.

a. The Arabs are very sensitive about the basing of foreign
troops on their soil. American forces should avoid any comments
or actions which could lead to the conclusion that our
deployment could be permanent. We should stress the defensive
and temporary nature of our mission, while emphasizing that we
will stay on as long as we are needed.

b. CUSTOMS, COURTESIES AND GESTURES: While in the AOR,
through training and exercise, American forces will interact
with local forces. We are the guests of the host government and
it is imperative that we show the proper respect to our host's
nationals. The Arab culture possesses many customs different
than our own. Certain customs and gestures which are
meaningless in our society can have significant meaning in the
Arab society.

c. ALCOHOL: The use of alcohol is restricted by the Moslem
religion and prohibited by many host countries in the AOR. In
deference to our hosts, no alcohol will be be taken in theatre,
REPEAT NO ALCOHOL TAKEN IN THEATRE. Pornography and sexually
explicit literature is equally unacceptable in the Arab society
and will also not be taken in theatre.

d. HANDSHAKING: Shake hands whenever you meet an Arab and
when you leave him.

e. SITTING: Never sit and expose the sole of your shoe or
*bottom of your feet to an Arab it is an insult!

f. CONVERSATION: Generally take the lead from what the Arab
brings up but avoid initiating personal questions. Do not ask
questions about the women of an Arab family.

g. FRIENDSHIP: Arabs take friendship very seriously.
Whereas Americans form quick and casual friendships, the Arab
concept of friendship is one of duration and intensity. Before
the Arab enters into a friendship, he must find out all about
you to see how much influence you have, what you can do for him
and if you might embarrass him. Expect a healthy interest from




2-2










AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 3 13 September 1990


the Arabs in your social, professional, and academic
background. If you misrepresent your background, not only will
you affect your credibility, but more importantly you can
seriously harm an Arab's standing and that of his family. Once
a friendship is formed, you can expect the Arab to use all his
influence and that of his friends to assist you. Remember,
however, that the Arab system of friendship balances favors
against obligations. When favors are asked by an Arab, never
give a flat "NO" because it will signal a desire to end a
friendship. Instead, say "I'll see what I can do" or "I'm
checking on it."

h. TOUCHING: Touching and holding hands with members of the
same sex in public is acceptable and demonstrates friendship.
Touching or kissing members of the opposite sex in public is
considered in extremely bad taste and could be considered
obscene.

i. DISTANCE: Arabs stand very close together when talking.
Americans may find this uncomfortable, but should not back away.

j. TIME: Do not be impatient with local people. If you
hurry, nothing will get done. However, if you arrive too late
for an appointment you are publicly insulting the individual.

k. CRITICISM: Unlike Americans, Arabs do not accept or give
criticism directly. Even constructive criticism of an Arab's
work or ideas in public is considered an insult. It is
especially rude to contradict a person of status or a superior
in rank or age. An Arab's ideas or suggestions should always be
given recognition. If criticism is required, take the Arab
aside privately and gradually lead up to the subject in an
indirect and very tactful manner. American "frankness" is
*always too direct and usually misunderstood as criticism. Arabs
understand and appreciate tact because it protects public image,
avoids insult and displays culture.

1. PATRONIZING: Do not talk down to someone because he
doesn't speak English well.

m. PHOTOGRAPHY: Do not take pictures of military or civilian
installations and equipment, military or civilian police, and
civilian airport or seaport facilities without permission of the
host country. Do not photograph people at close range
(particularly women) without permission.



2-3










AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 3 13 September 1990


n. YOU, THE TECHNICAL EXPERT: You never respond with "I
don't know but I will find out." No one will listen to you
again. Respond with "Let me show you how to look up that
information" or "I must see my superiors, come back in an hour."

o. WOMEN: Do not stare or strike up a conversation with Arab
women in public.

p. FOOD/BEVERAGES: When offered food or drink, accept it
even if you don't want it. Decline further offerings by saying
that the first serving was quite sufficient.

q. MISCELLANEOUS:

(1) Stroking the mustache in connection with an oath or a
promise indicates sincerity.

(2) Right hand or forefinger placed on tip of nose, top of
head, lower right eyelid, mustache or beard, means "It's my
obligation." Placing the palm of the right hand on the chest
when greeting another shows respect or thanks.

(3) Hitting the right fist into the open palm of the left
. hand indicates obscenity or contempt.

(4) The western A-OK sign is, to the Arab, a sign of the evil
eye and used only in conjunction with curses. Do not use.

(5) Biting the right forefinger, which is placed sideways in
the mouth, may be either a threat or an expression of regret.

r. If you show respect for the cultural ways of the Arab
world, your stay in the Middle East will be much more
-enjoyable. Learn as much as you can about the country that you
will visit prior to departing the USA. There is much to enjoy
in the Middle East and a great deal to learn. Your
understanding and enjoyment of the Arab culture will depend on
how you use your time in the host country. Mission
accomplishment can be enhanced through cultural and personal
awareness.

MILITARY PERSONNEL:

1. Waiver of Security Clearance Requirements in AR 380-67:

a. Effective immediately, IAW AR 380-67, paragraph 3-801,
Unit Commanders are authorized to grant onetime SCI access to DA
Military (to include Reserve Component) and civilian personnel
under your command whom you determine have a demonstrated need
to know for such information to support current Desert Shield
Operations. You will most likely be required to provide a count
of SCI accesses granted under this authority for your command to
ensure accountability and integrity of this authorization.
Therefore, request you maintain the names of the individuals
granted SCI.

b. Effective immediately, IAW AR 380-67, paragraph 3-801,
the 90-day limitation stated in paragraph 3-407 of AR 380-67,
for onetime access to TS, S, and C information is waived for
cases for which such access is required to support Desert Shield
Operations. Unit Commanders are authorized to grant such access
to personnel under your command whom you determine have a
demonstrated need to know for such information. As with cases
of onetime access to SCI, you must maintain similar records and
keep a count of the accesses granted for your command.

c. The above waivers pertain, repeat, pertain only to
situations involving support of Desert Shield Operations. The
policy as written in AR 380-67 applies to all other situations.

d. As a result of the above authorized waivers, when
determining your available MOS trained percentage for possible
mobilization/deployment in connection with Operation Desert
Shield, personnel in your command who possesses a security
Clearance of no less than one level below the required clearance
level can be considered MOS qualified if qualified in all other
aspects of the DMOS.

e. Let's recap what we think needs to happen so we can most
effectively support Operation Desert Shield:

(1) If demonstrated need exists, give people access.
On-site commanders know best when a bona-fide need exists.

(2) Do not let bureaucracy stand in the way of meeting
Desert Shield operational requirements.




3-1










AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 3 13 September 1990

f. Keep in mind, and this is extremely important, that while
certain provisions of AR 380-67 are being waived to give you
maximum flexibility, commanders need to continue to adhere to
the principles of the Army's Personnel Security Program by
denying access to personnel who do not have a need to know or
are of questionable character, trustworthiness, reliability, or
loyalty.

PLANS, OPERATIONS, TRAINING, AND MILITARY SUPPORT:

1. Operations:

The following is a current update of mission support to
OPERATION DESERT SHIELD:

a. Providing staff support for the 18th Airborne Corp, Ft.
Bragg, NC. This mission was completed 10 September 1990.

b. Providing one (1) UH-1H and one (1) OH-58 to Ft. Stewart
and Hunter Army Airfield. This support was modified on 3
September 1990 to consist of one (1) OH-58 with one (1) officer
and one (1) enlisted soldier to continue through 30 September
1990.

c. Providing medical support to the Port of Jacksonville.
This mission was completed 10 September 1990.

d. Providing GS/DS support to Ft. Stewart, GA and the Georgia
National Guard. This support is being provided by the Director
of Maintenance at CBTS. This support continues.

2. MOB Readiness:

All units and individuals of the Florida National Guard should
continue preparation for possible activation. Readiness for
mobilization is the Florida National Guard's number one
priority. Individual and unit preparation as outlined in Phase
I of our Mob Plans is an everyday-ongoing-proposition. During
these days of military crisis, all of us must ensure these
requirements are current.

.3. OPSEC:

As the situation changes, we will keep you informed with the
latest facts/information. Try not to listen to nor pass on
rumors. OPSEC practices and good command information programs
will insure all soldiers are informed with appropriate and
accurate information. For example: No Florida National Guard
units have been alerted; however, five (5) Florida USAR units
have been mobilized. Three (3) additional Florida USAR units
were alerted 10 September 1990. Mobilization planning continues
- Florida National Guard units will be ready when called.

AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 3 13 September 1990


4. Training:

Many tasks are impacting available training time. Unit
Commanders must prioritize tasks, manage their assets, and
execute plans more intensely than ever before. Commanders and
Trainers must answer this question, "Have I accomplished
everything possible to insure the highest state of readiness of
my unit and individual soldiers?" As plans and priorities are
developed, this question must remain at a high conscious level
in the Commander/Trainer's mind.

UNITED STATES PROPERTY & FISCAL OFFICER:

1. Sure Pay:

a. The AG Special Command Information Bulletin Number 1,
dated 31 August 1990, provided commanders Sure Pay Program
information. However, a message received from the United States
Army Finance and Accounting Center (USAFAC), dated 31 August
1990, stated, "Effective immediately, all reserve component
soldiers activated in support of Operation Desert
Shield-including "Grandfathered" soldiers-are required to
establish Sure-Pay as their pay option." Therefore, it is
essential that commanders stress the importance of their
soldiers' enrolling in the Sure-Pay Program now to reduce some
of the anticipated administrative requirements during the alert
phase. This should establish a precedence for the future and
commanders must attempt to have the highest Sure-Pay
participation possible to avoid unnecessary constraints for
future mobilization planning.

b. An exception to the above policy is available if soldiers
can demonstrate that participation in the Sure-Pay Program will
create unusual personal hardships. The immediate unit commander
may grant such waiver requests only after ensuring the soldier
fully understands his/her obligation to financially support
their families during absences through an allotment or some
other means.

2. Required Documents for Mobilization:

Units must ensure that all Logistical and Financial documents
required by FORMDEPS and FL STARC MP are on hand when reporting
to their Mobilization Station.

3. Filters for Protective Masks:

a. Commanders are reminded that training filters currently
installed in protective masks are not to be removed and replaced
with contingency filters on hand. Contingency filters are
authorized with a basis of issue of 2 sets per protective mask.
This same filter is authorized for training with a basis of
issue of 1 set per protective mask.

b. Upon arrival at the Mobilization Station, units will be
furnished further guidance on exchange of filters.

DIRECTOR OF MAINTENANCE:

1. Desert Shield Advisory Information:

Forces Command messages, Second Army messages, and this
Information Bulletin discuss special measures for maintenance
and lubrication of equipment operating in adverse conditions
(Desert). These messages are advisory only. Continue to be

execution of maintenance practices. Special preparations
involving paint, lubricants, etc., will be actioned at the

FY-90) will provide detailed instructions on operations purging
*of the M43A1 as an interim. These procedures are as follows:

AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 3 13 September 1990


(3) Ensure air filter is clean and install flow meter/
charcoal filter on air inlet port.

(4) Turn detector on and adjust volume to low level.

(5) Let the detector run for a few minutes. If needle does
not progress toward green area, using disposable gloves, close
off air outlet valve until meter is near left side. This
closing off of the air valve will expedite purging-and should
not be closed off more than ten seconds at a time. Repeat the
above until the alarm ceases.

(6) When needle is in the green area, turn off detector, open
case, and flip pumpswitch to the off position. Close case, turn
on detector, and press the reset switch, and allow detector to
pump down to the green area.

(7) Repeat the above procedure, if necessary. If the No/Go
condition still exists, turn in the unit to the supporting
maintenance unit.

(8) Also be advised that the TM specifies frequent
replacement (every hour) of the air filters when in a desert
environment and when using the M43A1 during convoy operations.

Command Information:

1. Second Army Commander Update Desert Shield:

a. The following personal observations were shared by LTG
Crysel with attendees of the Yearly Training Briefing last week
as pertains to mobilized USAR and National Guard units.
Strengths he identified were troops had great morale and esprit
de corps, good turnout of personnel, most all assigned soldiers
showed up, good movement to the mobilization station, in fact
sometimes too good, one unit arrived a day early. Weaknesses
identified were personnel who were not qualified to be mobilized
because of medical reasons, were brought to the mob station
which complicated administration and paperwork. Medical
screening was not completed for the over 40 soldiers in order to
take the Army Physical Fitness Test. Physical fitness, those
passing physical fitness test, percentage was not considered
appropriate. Generally, medical requirements were a shortfall
across the board. Load cards were not prepared adequately to
support loading for deployment. Also, most units were not aware
of requirements for rail load. Some equipment in units was not
being used or had not been used by the sections or individuals
to which it had been assigned.

b. In summary, LTG Crysel requested that we focus on the
survivability of our troops which includes physical fitness,
weight control, environmental impact on mission accomplishment,
and other physical problems which may detract from our ability
to perform. In response to LTG Crysel's comments, the Adjutant
General, MG Ensslin, noted that we had basically found the same
shortfalls within those Florida National Guard units we were
looking at as candidates for mobilization. He requested that
the MACOM Commanders and his staff focus on these shortfalls.

(POC COL Swindull, DSN 860-7120, SC 853-1120, or CM
904-823-0120)

2. Desert Shield Update:

Outstanding accomplishments have been made in preparing units
for mobilization. Of particular note, is the teamwork, and
professionalism shown throughout the Florida National Guard.
Also, of particular note is the participation and support from
the spouses through their family support organizations. Major
shortfalls in each unit have been identified and actions
initiated to correct these shortfalls. The Adjutant General has

AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 4 20 September 1990


furnished the following planning guidance as pertains to
activities within the Florida National Guard in support of
Desert Shield and possible mobilization of the Florida National
Guard units.

a. Normal training schedules should be followed unless
further changes are made in the Desert Shield mobilization
scenario.

b. All commanders are being furnished procedures as pertains
to volunteer programs to fill shortfalls of critical MOSs in
candidate mobilization units and volunteers who may want to
volunteer on an individual basis. Assistance from all
commanders in the administration of the volunteer program is
solicited.

c. Requests for discharge from the Florida National Guard for
personal reasons should be closely scrutinized by all commanders
and not forwarded for approval unless for the most cogent
reasons.

d. Plans are being developed to cross level critical
equipment within the Florida National Guard upon alert of
Florida National Guard units for mobilization. Instructions are
being furnished by the USPFO as to the procedures to be used.
All commanders are requested to follow these procedures for
equipment transfer without deviation.

e.. All units should focus training on preparing the
individual soldiers for mobilization. This includes
accomplishing physical, over 40 screening, HIV testing, proper
clothing, spectacle inserts, individual weapon qualification,
NBC refresher training, overall personal physical fitness, and
etc.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
PERTAINING TO RESERVISTS ORDERED TO
ACTIVE DUTY UNDER 10 U.S.C. 673b
DUE TO PERSIAN GULF CRISIS

SUMMARY
MEETING WITH PERSONNEL OFFICERS
AUGUST 27, 1990


1. QUESTION: Can the employee be paid for the 30 calendar days of
military leave before receiving evidence from
appropriate military authority that 30 days of
military service have been completed?

ANSWER: An employee shall be left on the payroll for the first
30 calendar days of military leave. However, the Rule
requires receipt of evidence that the 30 days of
military service was completed before the paycheck is
released.

2. QUESTION: Can an employee use annual or compensatory leave in
conjunction-with military leave?

ANSWER: Yes. It is up to the discretion of the agency to
grant annual or compensatory leave for use in
conjunction with military leave. Such leave, if
granted, can be used intermittently (as in maternity
leave), but must be granted at a minimum in amounts
sufficient to cover the employee's deductions.

3. QUESTION: Would an employee forfeit excess leave on December 31,
or his anniversary date as applicable?

ANSWER: The Code prohibits the loss of rights or benefits.
Excess leave may be carried over for future use,
depending upon the time remaining in the year.

4. QUESTION: Section 22A-8.14(2) provides for the first 30 calendar
days of military leave to be with full pay upon
receipt of documentation that 30 days of military
service have been completed. Do the 30 days of
military service have to coincide totally with the
first 30 days of military leave?

ANSWER: Yes. Section 22A-8.14(1) states in relevant part that
the employee ". .shall be granted leave beginning
with the date of induction. ." The first 30 days of
military leave must coincide with the first 30 days of
actual military service.







6-4






5. QUESTION: Is the payment equal to the employee's daily rate of
pay times 30 or is it equal to the salary which would
have been earned had he worked during that 30 day
period? Also, if an employee does not serve the full
30 days of military service, what portion of this
period will the employee be paid for?

ANSWER: The employee should be paid an amount equal to the
salary he would have earned if he had remained in
State service (including any holiday) during the
period of his first 30 days of military service. If
the employee does not serve the full 30 days, the
employee is paid only for those days he actually
served.

6. QUESTION: If the employee's 30 days of military leave with pay
results in a salary payment for a partial month, how
is the partial month's payment computed?

ANSWER: The payment for a partial month shall be computed in
accordance with the Comptroller's rules for agencies
on a monthly payroll.

EXAMPLE:

Employee's Regular Monthly Rate of Pay = $2000

Employee reports for military duty on 8/16 and remains on duty through
9/30, however the 30 days with pay ends on the close of business on
9/14. The employee then goes on leave without pay until he returns toe
work, unless he requests and has approval to use annual or(
compensatory leave credits.

Employee is to be paid for August (8/16 through 8/31 96 hours) and
part of September (9/1 through 9/14 80 hours) as follows:

August has 184 work hours.

September has 160 work hours (includes holiday)

Formula to be used:
# of hours worked in the month
= % of time worked
a of work hours in the month

August 8/16 8/31 September 9/1 9/14
96 hours worked = .522 80 hours worked = .50
184 work hours in the month 160 work hours in the month

$2000 $2000
x.522 x .50
$1044 $1000





6-5






Several agencies with a monthly payroll cycle were contacted, and it
was determined that this method of calculating a partial month's
salary for full-time employees is consistent with the method already
being used.


7. QUESTION: For the purpose of eligibility for accruing higher
annual leave credits, will a period of military leave
count toward continuous and creditable service?

ANSWER: Yes. The VRRA prohibits the loss of rights and
benefits.

8. QUESTION: Will a Career Service employee who is granted military
Leave for active duty as provided for in Section
22A-8.14, F.A.C., earn annual and sick leave credits
for the first 30 calendar days of such leave which is
with full pay?

ANSWER: Under Section 115.09, Florida Statutes, the first 30
days of military leave shall be with full pay. Full
pay includes the earning of annual and sick leave
credits.

9. QUESTION: When an employee is granted military leave in
accordance with the Code, under what status can
another employee be hired?

ANSWER: A person who is appointed to a position from which
another employee is granted military leave may be
appointed with substitute status in accordance with
22A-8.14(5), F.A.C., or with temporary or emergency
status in accordance with 22A-7.003(3)(c)(d), F.A.C.

10. QUESTION: Can an employee attain permanent status in a class
while serving with substitute, temporary, or emergency
status?

ANSWER: No. An employee shall not attain permanent status in
a class while serving in substitute, temporary or
emergency status. However, if the person appointed is
a current career service employee, he/she may already
have permanent status. See Section 22A-7.004(3),
F.A.C.

11. QUESTION: Will an employee who is appointed to fill the position
of another employee on military leave be considered in
an overlap status during the first 30 days of paid
leave of the employee on military leave?


ANSWER: When an employee is appointed to fill the position of
an employee who is on military leave, the agency is
authorized to approve a position overlap pursuant to


6-6
6-6






22K-9.005(1), F.A.C. The overlap appointment will
continue as long as the incumbent is in pay status.
Overlap extensions are approved when applied to
persons on military leave.

12. QUESTION: Is the method of prorating leave for SMS and SES ,
changed by the Code?

ANSWER: No. See my memorandum to you dated June 28, 1990.
For example, an employee who works two months after
his anniversary date and serves an additional month of
active military duty and resigns immediately upon
return to work, will be credited with 3/12 of his
leave.

ADMINISTRATION:

Guidelines for Mail to Saudi Arabia:

a. In response to numerous questions concerning Saudi Arabia
customs restrictions for mail, DoD Public Affairs has approved
the following guidelines for mail to Saudi Arabia. A follow-up
message with additional questions and answers will be
forthcoming. The DoD guidelines for mail to Saudi Arabia are
quoted as follows: (Quote) Numerous questions have arisen
regarding mail destined for U.S. Military Personnel deployed to
Saudi Arabia as part of Operation Desert Shield. With the
recent lifting of the twelve-ounce weight limit imposed by
USCINCCENT, the questions are likely to become more frequent.

b. The following recommendations are offered for persons
wanting to send mail to service members in Saudi Arabia via the
military postal system (APO addresses).

c. Saudi postal and customs regulations prohibit bringing or
shipping into the kingdom:

(1) Alcoholic Beverages of any kind
(2) Narcotics
(3) Weapons and Explosives (without appropriate permits)
(4) Pork and Pork Products
(5) Pornography
(6) Material contrary to the Islamic Religion

U.S. Government policy is that U.S. Forces in Saudi Arabia will
respect the laws and regulations of the kingdom.

d. U.S. Postal regulations, which apply to the Military
Postal system, similarly prohibit the shipment of alcohol,
narcotics, pornography, and munitions.

e. For purposes of mail destined for Saudi Arabia,
"Pornography" is considered to include depictions of the nude or
seminude human body and all sexually-oriented literature and
materials. Contrary to widely circulating rumors, there is no
ban on photographs showing women and girls dressed according to
accepted American standards of good taste. Women depicted in
photographs do not have to be dressed in conformity with Saudi
standards of female attire.





1-1










AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 5 1 October 1990


f. "Material contrary to the Islamic religion" includes
religious literature intended for general distribution. We do
not envision any problems with mailing religious items for the
personal use of individual members of the U.S. Armed Forces,
such as single copies of Bibles or prayer books. There is no
objection to greeting cards associated with religious holidays.

g. There is no substance to rumors of a prohibition on the
use of stamps depicting the American flag or various other
subjects. Any U.S. postage stamp is permissible.

h. Postal and customs regulations for Saudi Arabia are within
the purview of the Saudi Arabian government. While only the
Saudi Arabian government can speak authoritatively on its own
standards, the Department of Defense anticipates that following
these guidelines should avoid potential problems.

i. The Department of Defense is confident that the public

Unit Funding Support for Operation Desert Shield:

a. Costs associated with a unit's mobilization in Operation
Desert Shield will be shared by both National Guard and Army
funds. The criteria for funding support is based upon the
effective date of the mobilization order. National Guard Bureau
funds will be utilized to support all unit mobilization
requirements from the time of receipt of alert to the effective
date of the mobilization order. Department of the Army funds
will be utilized to support all unit requirements on and after
the effective date of the mobilization order.

b. Based upon the above guidance, units will continue to
request support through normal channels to support the alert
phase operations. Unit designated Class A Agent Officers will
receive funds (checks) from Fort Stewart, GA to cover expenses
from the effective date of the mobilization order until arrival
at the mobilization station. These funds will be used for all
purchases actioned by the Mobilization Purchasing Authority.
Exceptions to this will be purchases in excess of $2,500 and
commercial transportation of personnel and equipment to the
mobilization station, which will be accomplished by the
respective USPFO division. Funds issued Class A Agents can not
be used prior to the effective date of the mobilization order or
after arrival at the mobilization station.

ADMINISTRATION:

Guidelines for Mail to Saudi Arabia:

a. In response to numerous questions concerning Saudi Arabia
customs restrictions for mail, DoD Public Affairs has approved
the following guidelines for mail to Saudi Arabia. A follow-up
message with additional questions and answers will be
forthcoming. The DoD guidelines for mail to Saudi Arabia are
quoted as follows: (Quote) Numerous questions have arisen
regarding mail destined for U.S. Military Personnel deployed to
Saudi Arabia as part of Operation Desert Shield. With the
recent lifting of the twelve-ounce weight limit imposed by
USCINCCENT, the questions are likely to become more frequent.

b. The following recommendations are offered for persons
wanting to send mail to service members in Saudi Arabia via the
military postal system (APO addresses).

c. Saudi postal and customs regulations prohibit bringing or
shipping into the kingdom:

S (1) Alcoholic Beverages of any kind
(2) Narcotics
(3) Weapons and Explosives (without appropriate permits)
(4) Pork and Pork Products
(5) Pornography
(6) Material contrary to the Islamic Religion

U.S. Government policy is that U.S. Forces in Saudi Arabia will
respect the laws and regulations of the kingdom.

d. U.S. Postal regulations, which apply to the Military
Postal system, similarly prohibit the shipment of alcohol,
narcotics, pornography, and munitions.

e. For purposes of mail destined for Saudi Arabia,
"Pornography" is considered to include depictions of the nude or
seminude human body and all sexually-oriented literature and
materials. Contrary to widely circulating rumors, there is no
ban on photographs showing women and girls dressed according to
accepted American standards of good taste. Women depicted in
photographs do not have to be dressed in conformity with Saudi
standards of female attire.





1-1










SAG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 5 1 October 1990


f. "Material contrary to the Islamic religion" includes
religious literature intended for general distribution. We do
not.envision any problems with mailing religious items for the
personal use of individual members of the U.S. Armed Forces,
such as single copies of Bibles or prayer books. There is no
objection to greeting cards associated with religious holidays.

g. There is no substance to rumors of a prohibition on the
use of stamps depicting the American flag or various other
subjects. Any U.S. postage stamp is permissible.

h. Postal and customs regulations for Saudi Arabia are within
the purview of the Saudi Arabian government. While only the
Saudi Arabian government can speak authoritatively on its own
standards, the Department of Defense anticipates that following
these guidelines should avoid potential problems.

i. The Department of Defense is confident that the public
will exercise good judgement in mailing materials to service
members in these countries. Following the above guidelines will
fully protect the rights of U.S. service personnel and will
avoid needlessly offering issues to those who seek to divide us
) from our friends in the region. (Unquote)

j. Additional questions not covered by the DoD guidelines
should be directed to Major Rader, MPSA-PAO, (DSN 221-8044) who
will coordinate a response with OSD/PA.

3. Filter Paddle Change-Out Procedure for the M43A1 Chemical
Agent Detector:

a. Reference Message Number 0C89009667 dated Sep 90.

b. This information is to apprise users of the M43A1 Chemical
Agent Detector of air filter paddle change out procedures when
operating in a high dust environment (Desert).

c. Users are currently instructed to remove/replace the air
filter paddle every six hours under high dust and sand
conditions. Before either removing or replacing the air filter
paddle, users are advised to check the air flow of the M43A1
CAD. When checking the air flow, ensure that the flowmeter ball
registers in the green band. If the flowmeter ball registers
below the green band, remove air filter paddle and inspect the
surface. Remove any accumulated sand or dust by tapping the
edge on a hard surface. Reinsert the air filter paddle and
repeat the air flow test. If the air flow is good, continue
using the air filter paddle.

d. If the flowmeter ball still registers below the green
band, the air filter paddle should be removed and replaced.

(POC 2LT Fields, DSN 960-3141, SC 854-3141 or CM 904-533-3141)

4. Equipment Lubrication Recommendations for Desert Operation:

a. Reference Message Number 07A7009B74 dated Sep 90.

b. This information provides lubrication recommendations for
operation equipment in adverse (Desert) conditions.

c. Use only lubricates specified or conforming to the
military specifications listed in your applicable equipment LO,
with the exception of grease artillery and automotive (GAA)
MIL-G-10924. In lieu of GAA, use the following grease:

Aircraft grease, wide temperature range (WTR) MIL-G-81322.

NSN SIZE

9150-00-181-7784 8 oz Tube
9150-00-944-8953 1 lb Can
9150-00-143-0268 5 lb Can

AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 6 2 October 1990


d. Most LO's contain a statement to the effect that, hard
time intervals may be shortened if your lubricants are
contaminated or if you are operating the equipment under adverse
operating conditions (Desert). Consideration should be given to
shortening the lubrication intervals as they apply to your
specific conditions and operating scenario. Change any
applicable filters in conjunction with these shortened
intervals.

e. Extra care should be taken to prevent contamination when
servicing your equipment. Clean away accumulations of sand or
dirt from any servicing point prior to checking/adding
lubricants. Exposed areas such as winch/hoist cables and
hydraulic cylinder rods should not be lubricated when operating
in Desert conditions. Rather, wipe down these areas with a dry
clean cloth before use.

f. Coolant systems are critical in high temperature (Desert)
operations. For safe equipment operations in a high temperature
environment, a 60 percent coolant and 40 percent water mixture
can also be used. Never use more than a 60/40 mixture as
premature equipment failure may occur. The bottom line:

(1) Use only lubricants specified or that meet the military
specifications listed in your equipment lube order except as
noted here.

(2) Adjust your lubrication intervals in sandy, dusty and
high temperature environments.

(3) Do not lubricate exposed areas when operating in
sandy/dusty conditions. Wipe these areas with a dry clean
cloth.

(4) Clean servicing points before you check/add lubricants.

(5) Use non-contaminated lubricants and clean funnels/grease
guns when servicing your equipment.

(6) Use 60/40 or 50/50 coolant mixtures in high temperature
environments.

AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 6 2 October 1990


5. Lubricants for High Temperature Environments:

a. Reference Message Number 0827008637 dated Sep 90.

b. Information received from southwest Asia is that equipment
arriving in-country is not lubricated in accordance with the
lubrication order requirements for operation in high temperature
environments.

c. Due to the limited facilities available in-country to
change lubricants, all units preparing for deployment in support
of Operation Desert Shield are to ensure that the lubricants in
their equipment have been changed to those specified in the
applicable equipment LO.

d. Additionally, vehicles/equipment operating in desert
regions should cut their normal oil change intervals in half.
For example, if oil change is required at 12,000 miles, change
oil at 6,000 miles or if required at 400 hours, change at 200
hours.

S (POC 2LT Fields, DSN 960-3141, SC 854-3141 or CM 904-533-3141)

6. Procedures for Field Inflation/Deflation of Tires with Split
Rim Wheels:

a. Reference Message Number 0239008AB1 dated Sep 90.

b. For desert operations of tactical wheeled vehicles or
trailers, it is required to deflate tires to increase mobility
on sand, and then inflate tires for normal operation, the
following should be done to ensure safety of the operator during
the procedure:

(1) Inspect vehicle/trailer to determine if they have split
rims. Split rim wheels have a retaining ring which is seated
into a groove around the rim to hold the tire bead in place.

(2) Check retaining ring for damage and to see if tire beads
are seated properly around the rim. If damaged or improperly
installed tires are found, deflate and remove from vehicle for
repair.







3-4










AG SPECIAL CMD INFO BUL NO 6 2 October 1990


(3) To inflate or deflate a tire with a split rim wheel, use
a valve lock fitting, a ten foot hose, and an in-line tire
inflator gauge. There must be at lease ten feet of hose between
the inflator gauge and the tire.

(4) A tire inflation gauge with a 10-foot hose, quick
disconnect coupling and two coupler adapters can be
requisitioned with NSN 4910-00-441-8685. Hook it to the air
supply hose with a straight pipe to tube, adapter NSN
4730-00-391-3771, which is in the number 1 and number 2 common
shop sets brass fitting kit.

(5) Most importantly, use extreme caution when inflating the
tire. The retaining ring could explode off the rim with
sufficient force to cause severe injury or death. Always stand
at least 10 feet away from the wheel, towards the front or back
of the vehicle.

Key Policies:

a. The following is a list of key policies that have been
issued and are restated for information and action where
required.

(1) Organizational Clothing and Individual Equipment (OCIE).
All items not authorized by Column AA-M of CTA 50-900 dated 1
August 1990 will be left at home station.

FL STARC MP, and Reserve Component Unit Commanders Handbook.

(3) Contracting Procedures. Bring several books of SF44s
(Purchase Invoice Voucher). Ordering Officers are limited to
twenty-five hundred dollars ($2500), per individual SF44.

(4) Hazardous and Sensitive Cargo. Units should be especially
careful with these shipments. Ensure packing lists indicate
special handling requirements. Hazardous cargo must be

DIRECTOR OF LOGISTICS:

Reports of Survey:

a. Major commands that have candidate units tentatively
identified should make every effort to close all open unit
Reports of Survey to preclude having to process after
activation.

b. Soldiers found financially liable could find it hard to get
relief if no longer under the current organizational structure.

c. Although amount charged is under IDT, computed the same as
for active duty personnel, collection actions would occur more
rapidly and in larger amounts than during inactive duty
situations.

d. The bottom line is: each commander will have enough to do
with mobilization, much less having to work on Reports of
Survey, and adjustment documents.

DESERT SHIELD PLANNING UPDATE:

The following is furnished for planning guidance in preparation
for mobilization of units in support of Desert Shield. This
guidance is furnished on the best information available from
experience at all levels in adjusting from full mobilization
planning to execution experience, at the partial mobilization
level. This guidance will be included in the Florida STARC
Mobilization Plan, as applicable. The alphabetical letters
below cross reference to the alphabetical letters of Annexes in
the STARC Mobilization Plan.

A. Mobilization Alert Procedures:

During the call-up, the number of personnel that can be ordered
to active duty in advance of the unit, was limited to 10 percent
of the assigned strength. Every effort must be taken to ensure
the best possible use of resources personnel, equipment and
time are integrated into an efficient and unified effort.

C. Training:

The 2A Commanders training focus that should be adopted by units
called up in support of Operation Desert Shield must be on
ability to go to war and survive. Specifically:

(1) Common Task Training. The perception seems to have been
that this training is repetitively boring and not conducive to
retention. I believe this training can and should be
challenging, interesting and helpful to retention. I know it is
imperative if we are to avoid needless casualties in war.

(2) Physical Training. We are all aware of the limitations
imposed by the RC environment. We must overcome these
constraints and truly take care of our troops in the broad,
life-long sense. It's not easy, but we must be innovative and
demanding.

(3) Weapons Qualification. We're firing reasonable amounts of
ammunition, but we obviously need to make significant improve-
ments in the way we train. The quantity of firing is far less
critical than is the quality of training. I urge your
personal attention in this arena.

(4) Survival Skills. Who wants to be responsible for a combat
service support unit that is technically more competent than its
AC counterpart, but which does not survive? I certainly don't.
Major General Tait recently dispatched a message on the subject,
DTG 051837Z Oct 90, subject: Survivability Training Emphasis.
You were an information addressee. Please read the message and
emphasize the content.

and/or PMPC to ensure accountability of non-deployable equipment
(Federal and State).

sections must be separated and remain available, until
departure.

(12) Mobilization Station Requirements:

(a) The mobilization station will require arriving units to
provide a roster of personnel that shows sizes required for
issue of the Desert Battle Uniform (DBU). This information
should be prepared at home station. Units should not rely on
sizes contained in clothing records. This method of obtaining
sizes has resulted in many soldiers being issued DBUs that were
too small due to failure to keep the clothing records current.
This is a Phase II Task in conjunction with Showdown.

(b) Mobilization station requires that units arrive with a
15-day supply of janitorials. Units must ensure that they have
a 15-day supply of essential janitorial supplies on hand for
mobilization. Units should coordinate with USPFO during Phase
II.

(c) Upon mobilization, units are assigned a new DODAAC number.
Requisitions (DA Form 2765) which contain the unit's old DODAAC
number cannot be used for requisitioning shortages. Recommend
that the DODAAC number be left blank on mobilization
requisitions.

E. Personnel:

(1) Phase I Tasks: During Phase I, commanders at all levels
must continue to place command emphasis on keeping all Phase I
Tasks for mobilization as current as possible. In addition
during Phase II, if time permits, the following actions should
be accomplished:

(a) DA Fm 428 with an ID card picture prepared for each
soldier. Keep in one separate file and take to mobilization
station with advance party.

(b) Two extra copies of the DA Fm 1172 should be made. One
should be taken to the mobilization station with the advance
party, the other copy kept for the Family Assistance Center
(FAC).

(2) AWOLs: During Phase III, commanders must identify all
AWOLs and provide this information to the Provost Marshal at the
Mobilization Station. Provost Marshal will then issue warrants,
which will allow civilian police authorities to make arrests as
appropriate.

(3) Transportation of Personnel Authorized Delays: During
Phase IV, bus/plane tickets may be required for personnel who
were authorized a delay in reporting to the Mobilization
