This is the latest edition of an important U.S. Army field manual (FM) dealing with mortuary affairs operations.
In chapter 1, it states: "As today’s Army transitions into the force of the twenty-first century, Force XXI, the role of MA personnel (MOS 92M) is important as the DOD and the American public continue to emphasize the expeditious return of deceased personnel. The role of the (92M MOS) MA Specialist in a theater of operation is to search, recover, tentatively identify, and coordinate evacuation of remains through a structured evacuation system to the CONUS. The 92M NCO‘s function is to ensure subordinate personnel and unit leaders are trained, to standard, on current MA policies and procedures. Current MA policy states that the remains of all members of the Armed Forces of the United States be returned for permanent disposition according to the desires of the PADD. The MA program provides for the care and disposition of deceased personnel and their personal effects. Subprograms which MA personnel operate under are Current Death, Concurrent Return, and Graves Registration subprograms. The Army is the executive agent for MA and maintains a current MA force structure. A theater is defined as the total area of land, air, and sea that is or could become involved in the conduct of war. It consists of a zone of interior and one or more theaters of operations. A zone of interior supports the TO. It includes industries, mines, farms, natural resources, and supply depots. The zone of interior consists of all national territory (CONUS including Hawaii and Alaska). It may also include foreign territory if the territory becomes an area where food is raised, supplies and equipment are manufactured, and personnel replacements are trained. A TO is that portion of the theater of war necessary for the conduct of military operations including CSS." This manual is produced by Headquarters, US Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC).
