This joint applied research project analyzed the performance of the United States Navy while operating in a Joint Task Force during recent humanitarian assistance and disaster relief missions. The performance of the USN during these missions was measured by comparing the regulations, procedures, and stated goals for these missions against interviews of firsthand accounts and a literature review documenting the Navy’s role during recent HADR missions. This project was not intended to determine if the actions taken during recent HADR missions were the right actions to take or if the results could have been better given alternative actions. Rather, the assessment focused solely on determining if the actions on the ground differed from the published doctrine. The recommendations for this project focused on how leaders appointed to conduct HADR missions may better align their actions on the ground against the stated goals for the mission, and, recommendations for updating current instructions and procedures to better align the published doctrine with the best practices observed on the ground.
