The 443rd Civil Affairs Battalion, 353rd Civil Affairs Command, U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne)

Phone: 401-341-2537

The U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne) mission is to organize, train, equip and resource Army Reserve civil affairs and psychological operations forces for worldwide support to regional combatant commanders and other agencies, as directed.

Its vision is to provide the nation with an expeditionary, campaign-quality civil affairs and military information support operations force, fully mission-capable across the spectrum of military operations.

Civil affairs units help military commanders by working with civil authorities and civilian populations in the commander’s area of operations to lessen the impact of military operations on them during peace, contingency operations and declared war. Civil affairs forces support activities of conventional commanders, and do so in the Reserve civil affairs as a unique blend of Army, Navy and Air Force personnel.

Ninety-four percent of the Department of Defense’s civil affairs forces are found in the Reserve civil affairs ranks — four civil affairs commands, seven subordinate brigades and 28 battalions. They are a prime source of skills necessary to help a nation rebuild following conflict and improve services for its people in times of peace.

Civil affairs units include Soldiers with training and experience in public administration, public safety and health, legal systems, labor management, public welfare, finance and education, civil defense, public works and utilities, public communications and transportation, logistics, food and agricultural services, economics, property control, cultural affairs, civil information and management of dislocated persons.

Civil affairs specialists can quickly and systematically identify critical needs of local citizens in war or disaster. They can also locate civil resources to support military operations, help minimize civilian interference, support national assistance activities, plan and carry out noncombatant evacuation, support counterdrug operations, and establish and maintain liaisons or dialogue with civilian aid agencies and other nongovernmental organizations.
