The United States Army War College's Center for Strategic Leadership hosted the sixth annual Reserve Component Symposium, Achieving Unity of Effort in Responding to Crises, on 11-12 July 2007. The forum addressed pressing concerns surrounding military response and recovery operations conducted by the military's active and reserve components following major disasters within the United States. The symposium utilized four work groups, with each group addressing a different issue. This paper is the product of one of the work groups, and the topic addressed is: The Potential Need to Establish an Appropriate Mechanism for the Military to Accompany and Support Civilian Components Focused on Regional Response to Catastrophe.
