U.S. Army Pacific Contingency Command Post: A Theater-Army Expeditionary Capability

October 15, 2011

In April 2011, U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC) certified a theater-army contingency command post (CCP), the final step in a process that began in 2009. This provides the commanding general of USARPAC with a small, rapidly deployable cell that brings prompt command, control and liaison capability to U.S. and allied forces in the region. It will increase the response options for combatant commanders and decrease response times for regional contingencies.
