Joint Staff Officers Guide AFSC Pub 1 -- 1997

Appendix J CJCS Warning Order

Refer to Joint Pub 5-03.1 (to be published as CJCSM 3122.01) for sample format.

1. Purpose. The WARNING ORDER will be issued by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to initiate Phase III--Course of Action Development. If the crisis warrants change in the alert status of units or pre-positioning of units, then the WARNING ORDER can contain a DEPLOYMENT PREPARATION or DEPLOYMENT ORDER. The WARNING ORDER is normally approved by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. If the order contains deployment of forces, Secretary of Defense authorization is required.

2. When Issued. The WARNING ORDER will be issued at the earliest practicable time following recognition of a crisis.

3. How Issued. The WARNING ORDER normally will be issued by record communication, using a precedence of IMMEDIATE or FLASH, as appropriate. If the situation is time-sensitive, voice communications or WIN TLCF should be used initially to pass WARNING ORDER information. A voice order or a WIN TLCF may be acted on immediately; however, a record communication will be forwarded as soon as practicable to confirm oral or WIN orders, tasks, etc., and to keep all crisis participants informed. The Focal Point system will be used if the situation dictates. Restricted access SPECAT handling with a specific authorized code word on messages is often used to ensure maximum security for operational intentions and is generally transmitted to predetermined addressees.

4. Addressees. AIG 8790 will normally be used in CAP messages. Action addressees in the AIG are CINCs and DIRNSA. The C2 paragraph will designate supported and supporting commanders. Information addressees in the AIG include the Services and other interested commands and agencies. Component commanders may be included as information addressees to speed dissemination and facilitate planning.

5. Contents

a. The WARNING ORDER of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff generally equates to a planning directive in the deliberate planning process and should contain all readily available guidance pertaining to the crisis. The precise contents of the WARNING ORDER may vary widely depending on the nature of the crisis and the degree of prior planning. Where little or no prior planning exists to meet a crisis, the supported commander will be given essential guidance necessary to permit him to begin crisis planning. The WARNING ORDER should be issued as soon as possible, even if detailed guidance is not available. During the preparation of the WARNING ORDER, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff will use the WIN TLCF to interact with the supported commander to ensure that mission requirements are adequately detailed. NORMALLY, THE WARNING ORDER WILL EITHER ALLOCATE MAJOR COMBAT FORCES AND STRATEGIC LIFT AVAILABLE FOR PLANNING OR REQUEST THE SUPPORTED COMMANDERíS ASSESSMENT OF FORCES AND STRATEGIC LIFT REQUIRED TO ACCOMPLISH THE MISSION. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION SHOULD BE SENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, IN MESSAGE FORM, REFERENCING THE INITIAL WARNING ORDER.

b. The WARNING ORDER defines the objectives, anticipated mission or tasks, pertinent constraints, command relationships, and, if applicable, tentative combat forces available to the commander for planning and strategic lift allocations. Further guidance relating to the crisis, such as changes to existing ROE or any specific directions from the NCA, will also be included as necessary, but maximum flexibility will be left to the supported commander in determining how to carry out the assigned mission and tasks.

c. Major paragraphs and items of information that should be considered for inclusion in the WARNING ORDER are as follows:

(1) Purpose Statement. State that the message is a WARNING ORDER. Indicate specific task assignments or requests to supported and supporting commanders, such as the deadline for receipt of the Commanderís Estimate and preliminary deployment estimates.

2. CA Objectives. List specific results sought, such as assessment of civil, indigenous, and host-nation support resources; support for humanitarian assistance and population or resource control operations; assistance to civil requirements; facilitation of postconflict transition activities; and enhancing friendly nation self-help capabilities to furnish socioeconomic services.

(g) Coordinating Instructions

1. Tentative C-day and L-hour (if other than 0001Z) for planning*

2. Anticipated date of execution (D-day). The date may be highly tentative at this time, but it gives the commander a relative timeframe for planning, based on the NCA perception of urgency.

6. DEPLOYMENT PREPARATION and DEPLOYMENT ORDERS. If required by prevailing circumstances, the WARNING ORDER may include a DEPLOYMENT PREPARATION ORDER or DEPLOYMENT ORDER, i.e., changes to alert status of units and movement of selected forces to pre-position for impending operations. If the WARNING ORDER contains such information, the first paragraph will state "This is a WARNING ORDER. The Secretary of Defense has authorized . . . ."

(1) ( ) GENERAL. FOR PLANNING, PARTIAL MOBILIZATION WAS

AUTHORIZED ON 17 NOV ___ IN SUPPORT OF EXECUTION OF USCINCPAC OPLAN XXXX. AIRLIFT PLANNING WAS BASED ON USTRANSCOM PLUS CRAF STAGE II. SEALIFT PLANNING WAS BASED ON USTRANSCOM-CONTROLLED FLEET PLUS THE RRF AND SELECTIVE REQUISITIONING OF US FLAG MERCHANT MARINE OVER AND ABOVE THE RRF.

(2) ( ) AIRLIFT. SUPPORTED CINC (USCINCPAC) FOR OPLAN XXXX MAY CONTINUE TO PLAN ON JSCP, ANNEX J, APPORTIONMENT (APPROXIMATELY ____ PERCENT OF THE TOTAL CAPABILITY AT PARTIAL MOBILIZATION AND CRAF STAGE II).

(3) ( ) SEALIFT. USCINCPAC CAN CONTINUE TO PLAN ON USING

ASSETS APPORTIONED BY JSCP, ANNEX J, IN THE APPROPRIATE TABLES UNDER PARTIAL MOBILIZATION CONDITIONS, INCLUDING USTRANSCOM AND ASSETS FROM THE RRF AND SRP.

(4) ( ) THE JOINT TRANSPORTATION BOARD (JTB) HAS DETERMINED

THAT A MINIMUM OF _____ PERCENT OF TOTAL AIR- AND SEA-LIFT CAPABILITY MUST BE ALLOCATED TO SUPPORT REQUIREMENTS IN OTHER THEATERS AND TO MAINTAIN ESSENTIAL LOCS. FURTHER, IF REQUIRED, THE JTB HAS APPROVED TWO SETS OF LIFT ALLOCATIONS FOR DEPLOYMENT AND SUSTAINMENT AS FOLLOWS:

(A) ( ) IF USCINCPAC OPLAN XXXX IS IMPLEMENTED ALONE, USCINCPAC MAY PLAN ON ALL REMAINING CAPABILITY (____ PERCENT).

(B) ( ) IF USCINCPAC OPLAN XXXX AND USCINCCENT OPLAN XXXX ARE IMPLEMENTED CONCURRENTLY, USCINCPAC MAY CONTINUE TO PLAN ON JSCP, ANNEX J, APPORTIONMENT UNDER PARTIAL MOBILIZATION CONDITIONS WITH SOME MODIFICATIONS AS OUTLINED BELOW. USCINCCENT MAY PLAN FOR ASSETS MADE AVAILABLE AS A RESULT OF DECLARATION OF PARTIAL MOBILIZATION AND ACTIVATING CRAF STAGE III (AT APPROXIMATELY USCINCCENT OPLAN XXXX C-DAY MINUS 4 FOR CRAF STAGE III). THE AIRLIFT ASSETS INCLUDE UP TO _____ WIDE-BODY CARGO, _____ WIDE-BODY PASSENGER, ____ NARROW-BODY CARGO, _____ NARROW-BODY PASSENGER, _____ C-5, _____ KC-10, AND _____ C-141 AIRCRAFT. IF REQUIRED, SPECIFIC PHASING OF THESE AIRCRAFT WILL BE OUTLINED IN THE USCINCCENT OPLAN XXXX ALERT ORDER.
