HONOLULU — Senior leaders from the 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command attended the Association of the U.S. Army Institute of Land Warfare LANPAC Symposium and Exposition at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel, here, April 9-11.

The event’s theme was “Land Forces: Assuring Stability and Security in the Pacific” and was held in order to exchange ideas with our joint, combined and industry forces as well as other partners within the U.S. Pacific Command community to highlight and discuss the role of Army air and missile defense in relation to the land force, as well as the joint and combined forces.

The desired outcome after the open forum discussion was for senior leaders and audience members to better understand and visualize the impact and role of Integrated Air and Missile Defense in the Pacific Region and its effects on joint and multinational operations.

“With the operations that are ongoing right now, I just want to let you know that throughout U.S. Pacific Command, starting with the command and control and the mission command up at the Pacific Air Forces Headquarters manned by Airmen and Army Soldiers, we just deployed throughout the region the patriots prepared in both Korea as well as Japan,” said Brig. Gen. Daniel Karbler, commander, 94th AAMDC.

On order, the 94th AAMDC deploys in the Pacific Command area of responsibility and conducts joint and combined theater air and missile defense in support of designated operation plans and contingency operations.

“It is an entirely joint and combined effort to do the air and missile defense mission here, which is why I am very excited to do this panel, and the timeliness really could not be any better,” said Karbler.

The Army’s Field Manual 7-0 states, “Unified action and joint interdependence require leaders aware of the institutional cultures of organizations making up or working with a joint force. This awareness includes understanding how joint and multinational, military and civilian partners operate and make decisions. Individuals, units and their leaders develop that understanding only by continuous education and by regular training with these partners.”

Karbler also added, “We are fully integrated within this area of responsibility in the Integrated Air and Missile Defense mission, and our sensor managers not only have a responsibility here within PACOM but also deal with homeland defense.”

The LANPAC Symposium and Exposition consisted of a seven panel discussion on topics of Operation Tomodachi — Challenges of Setting the Theater, Security Environment in the Asia-Pacific Region, Agile Mission Command Panel, Force Posture – Employing Land Power in the Pacific, Sustaining Land Power in the Pacific, Joint and Multinational Operations and Integrated Air and Missile Defense.
