5 FM 46-1 Preface Our vision is to build a trained, readily deployable force of Public Affairs professionals, resourced, capable and organized to conduct operations in peace, conflict and war, and to maintain a timely flow of accurate, balanced information to the American people. F ield Manual 46-1 is the keystone doctrinal manual for U.S. Army Public Affairs operations. It focuses on how the Army thinks about public affairs and de- scribes public affairs roles, missions, capabilities and organizations for the active Army, U.S. Army Reserve and Army National Guard. It also describes public af- fairs employment, command and control, and support across the operational continuum. This manual is the basis for Public Affairs force design and materiel acquisition. It supports the doctri- nal requirements of the Concept Based Requirements System and is the authoritative foundation for the in- ! tegration of Public Affairs into Army doc- trine, individual and unit train- ing, leader de- velopment, force design and materiel ac- quisition initia- tives. FM 46-1 is directly linked to, and must be used in conjunction with FM 100-5, FM 100-6, TRADOC PAM 525-5 and Joint Publication 1-07.
