"It is clear that we face major threats on the modern battlefield with a relatively small quantity of field artillery. It follows that we must optimize the use of all indirect fire support resources available."
"The purpose of this 1971 handbook is to provide a ready reference for the field artillery fire support officer (formerly the field artillery liaison officer) who functions as a fire support coordinator for a maneuver brigade or battalion."
