This manual offers lists of "employment menus" that Brigade Combat Teams, Civil Affairs Teams, Special Forces Teams, and Provincial Reconstruction Teams can consult to generate employment in their area of operation with the aim of engaging young men in productive work, (offering an alternative to insurgent activity), putting currency in the economy, developing positive rapport and trust with the local population, and working towards the long term viability of the state, which is the goal in counterinsurgency (COIN). This manual is designed to bridge the short and long term objectives of COIN. The three menus are graduated to offer different employment programs that eventually build from short-term, foreign funded projects, to long-term self-sustaining employment based on the resources and needs of the local population. The menus are also designed to bridge the rotation of forces in an area of operation, allowing for new troops to build on programs established by previous forces and to begin transitioning early projects to the civilian sector.
