             Subj:  LETTER OF INSTRUCTION FOR ESTABLISHMENT AND MAINTENANCE
                    OF CHEMICAL DEFENSE DECONTAMINATION AND MONITOR AND
                    SURVEY TEAMS


             Encl:  (1) Matrix of Decontamination/Monitor and Survey Team
                        requirements.

                    (2) Decontamination/Monitor and Survey Team Training
                        Schedule.


             1. Situation

                 a. Purpose. To publish instructions for the designation
             and training of chemical defense teams.

                 b. BackQround. Forces deployed to Saudi Arabia as part of
             Operation Desert Shield must be capable of continuing their
             mission in a chemical environment. This is particularly
             important for lst FSSG units because we provide critical
             sustainment to I MEF ground forces. Decontamination is a
             collective responsibility within any organization. This letter
             of instruction details lst FSSG's decontamination organization
             and associated training requirements.

             E. Mission. Improve the Broup's capabilities to survive in a
             chemical environment in order to continue to provide critical
             si.astainment support to I MEF units as required.

             3. Execution


                 a. Concept. The FSSO will establish personnel
             decontamination stations (PDS), equipment decontamination
   stations (EDS), and monitor and survey (M/S) teams, as
             specified in this instruction. At a minimum, each CSSD will
             have (1) of each of these teams trained and equipped to
             accomplish decontamination and monitor and survey functions.
             FSSG units stationed within the Al Jubayl Port complex will
             establish and equip teams in sufficient quantities to conduct
             unit decontamination if required. This approach will result in
             adequate capability within the port complex, and provide
             complete coverage for units that are not manned in sufficient
             quantities to decontaminate themselves. Tenant units (e.g., HO
             4th Marines) are invited to participate.
