This manual, Army Techniques Publication ATP 4-41 Army Field Feeding and Class I Operations December 2015, provides field food service doctrine through methods, techniques, and procedures for providing subsistence to Soldiers during the full spectrum of military operations. Because no two missions are the same, personnel must adapt the doctrine in this manual to fit the needs of the given situation and mission. The principle audience for ATP 4-41is all members of the profession of arms. Commanders and staffs of Army headquarters serving as joint task force or multinational headquarters should also refer to applicable joint or multinational doctrine concerning the range of military operations and joint or multinational forces. Trainers and educators throughout the Army will also use this publication. ATP 4-41 applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard /Army National Guard of the United States, and the United States Army Reserve unless otherwise stated. The Army has conducted many combat and stability operations that have greatly affected the way class I is provided to Soldiers. This manual incorporates these lessons learned and should be used to plan and conduct field food service and class I operations during field training exercises, operational deployments, and contingency operations. This manual, Army Techniques Publication ATP 4-41 Army Field Feeding and Class I Operations December 2015, replaces ATTP 4-41, Army Field Feeding and Class I Operations. The purpose for the conversion and update of this manual is to comply with the Army’s Doctrine 2015 Program. Significant highlights of this Army techniques publication (ATP) are the complete updates to all figures, and the deletion and addition of obsolete and new equipment respectively.
