ABSTRACT
The author argues for a more prominent role in the U.S. military for the training of foreign internal security forces that are tasked with irregular warfare missions in small wars. The article looks at the history of U.S. military advisory roles in the Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghan wars. Topics include strategic operations to implement counterinsurgency efforts, guidelines issued by the U.S. Army to outline foreign internal defense missions, and the U.S. advising of the Afghan National Army (ANA).
