Use of LNOs - Best Practice 8 -The last best practice is in the area of support and guidance. When using LNOs from other agencies or organizations, support them with appropriate information technology, desk space, and telephones to allow them to work within your organization and reach back to their agency. Include them in your information management plan. When deploying your LNO to other agencies or organizations, be sure to involve them in your internal updates and assessment. Equip them with the appropriate hardware as well as access to necessary collaborative tools. Best LNO Assignment- USG agencies may assign liaison personnel to joint force command staffs to improve coordination with their agency. For example, LNOs may be assigned to combatant command staffs to facilitate intelligence and antiterrorism support. Ensure liaison personnel are assigned to the area within the staff to best perform their liaison function - whether a specific J-code, Joint Interagency Coordination Group, or JIACG, sometimes pronounced 'jiassic,' or equivalent. Agency LNOs should have J-code level support and be available to work throughout the staff where their expertise and perspectives can best support the Commander's Decision Cycle. Primary LNO in Operation UNIFIED RESPONSE -During Operation UNIFIED RESPONSE the Response Management Team, or RMT, was the primary LNO. It was critical to the humanitarian assistance/disaster relief, or HA/DR, response that the J4 initiate a joint logistics operations center, or JLOC, cell with United States Northern Command/joint emergency control center, or JECC assistance. The J4 organization included a logistics operations division, plans and assessments division, plans and Services division, fuels LNO,

Defense Logistics Agency, or DLA LNO, a medical division, and an engineering division. There was also staffing provided by offices outside of the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance, or DCHA and the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance, or OFDA. Those LNOs, part of the Joint Staff team, included the United States Agency for International Development, or USAID, liaison officer, or ALO, external liaison officer, or ELO, and the logistics liaison officer, or LLO. Operation UNIFIED RESPONSE Lesson Learned- During the operation, Rear Adm. Thomas C. Traaen became the advisor/interface between the RMT and the Joint Staff. This senior staff member ensured a Defense Connect Online, or DCO, account was set-up for USAID and the RMT so teams had visibility of what Department of Defense, or DoD, was moving. Once USAID had visibility, they were able to use the DCO to communicate their priorities. That plug became a best practice and was planned for in the future. Their shortcoming was having limited connectivity to anything but commercial internet in the RMT. They had to establish an expanded Secret Internet Protocol Router Network, or SIPRNet, capacity and secure telephone equipment, or STE, for communications.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
