The material contained in this lesson was derived from the following publications:
AR-190-11, AR 190-13, AR 710-2, DA Pam 710-2-1, AR 740-26, DOD 5100.76-M,
and Physical Security Update 10-3.
"The military must be able to respond immediately to national security threats. This ability depends
largely upon the availability and functioning of arms, ammunition, and explosives (AA&E). These items
are therefore of prime interest to the enemy. Sabotage or theft of such items would seriously cripple
operational readiness. AA&E are items required and normally in short supply by terrorist and armed
revolutionary groups. They will get AA&E by any means possible. This includes theft or illegal
purchases. Policies, procedures, and standards must provide minimum security measures for such
sensitive items. As the threat will vary depending on numerous factors, local commanders must
supplement Department of the Army standards to meet local needs. Appendix A, at the end of this
subcourse, lists terms useful in understanding applicable security measures in this area."
