     MEMORANDUM FOR: Commander; 65th MP CO, APO NY 09657

     SUBJECT: After Action Review of Predeployment and Deployment Process



     This After Action Review is prepared for review of problems associated with the
     deployment of the 65th Military Police Company from Fort Bragg, North Carolina to
     Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.

          1. Problem: Dehydration.

          la. Discussion: We suffered a few casualties to the desert heat upon arrival.
     The dry heat will kill you if you don't take precautions.

          lb. Recommendations: Drink plenty of water. Start drinking before you leave
     the States and continue while aboard the plane enroute to Saudi Arabia.

          2. Problem: Not enough room for all individual equipment.

          2a@ Discussion; Most MP's were issued a medium ruck sack. This is not large
     enough to accommodate all the equipment required to be carried.

          2b. Recommendations: Have everyone buy or be issued a large ruck sack.

          3. Problem: Soldiers do not have personal affairs in order.

          3a. Discussion: Soldiers need to have will and power of attorneys made out as
     they enter the company as part of the inproccessing stage. All bills and creditors
     should be given the unit's deployed address so financial distress is not an added
     burden on the soldier.


          3b. Recommendation: Have each soldier initial and turn-in to operations a
     predeployment checklist.


          4. Problem: Accountability of equipment.

          4a. Discussion: As the deploying unit will require most, if not all of its
     TO&E equipment, each platoon leader and section supervisor must have an accurate
     count of what his platoon/section deployed with.

ion: Use hand receipts for accountability.

          5. Problem: Transportation of unit's basic load of ammunition.

          5a. Disovsuion: As the unit may travel commercial air, space and weight may be
     restricted. If the unit has the opportunity to deploy its equipment by sea, then
     ammo should also be sent.
