Field Manuals: Human Resources Manual FM 1-0
FM 1-0 promotes a common understanding of human resource support fundamentals. This manual does not dictate procedures for any particular operational scenario.
It provides the doctrinal base for developing operational plans (OPLANs) and standard operating procedures (SOPs).
Leaders and human resource operators at all levels must apply these fundamentals using the military decision-making process (MDMP), troop leading procedures (TLP), and METT-TC. This publication is authoritative; but requires judgment in application.
Survival-SHTF-Guide: Human Resources Manual FM 1-0
Human Resources (HR) doctrine must be complete enough for HR professionals to determine tasks and competencies that must be accomplished, yet not so prescriptive that it prohibits the freedom to adapt to operational circumstances.
Much like the tactical commander, HR professionals must be versatile and flexible enough to sustain uninterrupted HR support in today’s contemporary operating environment.
Knowledge of doctrine, combined with expertise and experience, provides a strong foundation for superior planning and execution and establishes a consistent understanding of required HR proficiencies.

Organization and Missions
Over the last century, warfare became increasingly complex. Army organizations changed from large division sized organizations to today’s brigade-based combined arms teams. To meet this challenge ATS organizations have undergone a transformation to better enable aviation to meet the requirements of the changing battlefront. ATS organizations are now designed to efficiently support Army aviation and joint, inter-agency, interdepartmental, and multinational (JIIM) forces. ATS organizations enable safe and efficient use of positive and procedural control measures with a designated airfield management structure managing high-density and congested airfields at theater level. The organizational tenets for this design are doctrinally balanced, logistically supportable, modernized, multifunctional, and modular.
