DOCTRINE

WHAT IS DOCTRINE?

Army doctrine provides the fundamental principles with supporting tactics, techniques, procedures, terms, and symbols used for the conduct of operations and guides the actions of operating forces and elements of the institutional force that directly support operations in support of national objectives. ADP 1, The Army, and ADP 3-0, Operations, as capstone doctrine, serve as the foundation of our professional body of knowledge.
