The purpose of this monograph was to determine what tasks are
critical for an aide-de-camp to perform during combat operations.
Three areas provided data for this research: historical
documentation, doctrinal and regulatory guidance, and contemporary
input. The contemporary input was gathered through a questionnaire
distributed to officers who served as aides during combat
operations. The questionnaire quarried officers having served in
that capacity since 1989. The study found five broad functional
areas under which combat critical tasks could be organized: (1)
provide the general communications support, (2) expedite
information flow to the general, (3) provide responsive
transportation support to the general, (4) provide
security/personal safety for the general, and (5) provide for the
general's personal support requirements. The combat critical tasks
are too numerous to fit within this abstract. They are listed in
the conclusions section. The study also collected numerous tactics,
techniques, and procedures (TTP) for aide duties in combat. The
significance of this study is in addressing a lack of written
material available for an aide specifically dealing with combat
