Overview

This guide provides planners with an overview of the beddown assets, tasks, and basic procedures required for Air and Space Expeditionary Force (AEF) bare base operations. It introduces the AEF concept of using Force Modules for planning AEF deployments. While each deployment location has its special requirements, there are common, basic approaches for providing services at all locations. You will have to use and adapt the layouts and procedures to meet your location. Other branches of the Armed Forces' Services and Morale, Welfare, and Recreation organizations may approach support for Joint Service beddowns differently, but the basic requirements are similar and will be addressed as they apply to AEF bare base and austere bare base deployments and the use of Force Modules.

Services can trace some of their history back to the American Revolution and the Army's Quartermaster Department, which was responsible for camp equipment, tents, transportation, and winter quarters using wood stores for heat. Congress added subsistence to the Quartermaster's responsibilities by the War of 1812, because while the Commissary Department could buy food, often they could not get the rations to the troops. Prior to the 1846 Mexican War, the Quartermaster Department picked up responsibility for clothing and other field equipment. Laundry support services did not exist through the Civil and Spanish American Wars. Soldiers wore their uniforms until they fell apart and were replaced, or washed themselves and their clothes in whatever water was available.
