Through the 199Os, the United States military, specifically the Army, has decreased its forward presence around the world. Instead, we have become a "force projection" Army, relying on deployments to move our forces into a theater of operations. This increased reliance on the art of deploying has made the study of previous deployments critical. This study is also important since military strategists expect U. S. forces to be involved in an increasing number of regional contingency operations of the sort conducted in Bosnia from late 1995 until the present. The success of such large-scale operational missions hinges on the Army's ability to efficiently deploy its forces. Planners of future missions therefore would greatly benefit from the study of the deployment to Bosnia in support of Operation Joint Endeavor. This thesis provides a thorough chronology of events surrounding the deployment of Army forces from Germany through Hungary and Croatia into Bosnia. The work further analyzes related transportation and logistical issues and problems in order to identify lessons learned from the mission. Once the lessons learned are identified, the study relates how those lessons learned have influenced deployment doctrine and deployments to subsequent operations.
