“So how do we file these?” by RangerElite

“What do you mean? What is it?”
“A couple of position papers by that brownnoser Halderman. He sure made his way up the food chain fast.”
“Let me look…This is why rose in rank so fast. This first one became General Order 1435 and the other 1573.”
“So he’s responsible for those? I often wondered where those ideas from left field come from.”
“Alright so lets put them in the files with the General Orders they generated.”
“Sounds good to me.”

Policy Proposal

--Classified: Top Secret--

Subject: returning Japanese troops


The Office of the Chief of Staff to the Commander in Chief
U.S. Department of War

The (OCSCC) have consulted with the United States Department of State regarding the large number of repatriated Japanese troops returning from Asia and the Pacific. The general consensus is that these Japanese troops will have to be utilized in Home Defense Battalions, sparing the manpower of the occupation forces from the additional burden of having to defend a one-time mortal enemy. It is estimated that between 1 to 2 million men of eligible military age will return to the Japanese Home Islands at the end of the repatriation process.

It is proposed that returning Japanese soldiers be screened and vetted by the U.S. Army's Counter-Intelligence Corps. Soldiers that CIC deems trustworthy will be immediately formed into Home Defense units, trained and armed by the Allied occupation forces, with surplus U.S. weapons, equipment, kit and uniforms. Toward the goal of training these forces, Military Assistance Group-Japan (MAG-J) will be stood up and immediately transferred to U.S. Armed Forces Far East Command, Tokyo. As a security measure, an Allied battalion will be attached to every 4 Japanese Home Defense battalion, acting as an HQ battalion.

Conversely, returning Japanese soldiers that do not pass the CIC screening process will be sent to “De-Nazification” camps, where upon completion, will be released to the custody of the Reconstruction Battalions, to serve out the remainder of their original term of military conscription (most Japanese conscripts captured or surrendered were fairly recently called up for service, most having 2-3 years, of 5 years, remaining to serve).

As always, input and ideas are always welcome, as they will only make this plan stronger.

U.S. Department of War
Policy Proposal

--Classified: Top Secret--

Subject: Resolution of Problematic Issues in the Far East


There is cause for concern as there are increasingly frequent artillery skirmishes occurring along the 38th parallel on the Korean Peninsula, attacks launched by the Soviet forces that occupied the area north of that latitude. The artillery is sporadic and likely not directed at any specific targets. However, it is the informed opinion of the local military commander that these are probing barrages and that we need to accelerate the combat training of our Korean allies, before the Soviets decide that the time to apply their knowledge of where we are NOT is now.

OCSCC proposes that Korean battalions are rotated to Japan for ease of training and re-equipment. Korean units are to be trained alongside newly arrived U.S. and KMT Chinese troops. All units will be cross-trained with new U.S. equipment.

As for the issue of French Indo-China, we urge our colleagues at the State Department to place pressure on the French Government in exile to relinquish their colony there, or we will be forced to support the unilateral declaration of independence of the local people there. There are four major ethnicities that constitute this area: Vietnamese, Khmer, Lao and Hmong. Three of these ethnicities have political capability to declare independence: the Vietnamese, the Khmer and the Lao. We already have the support of the Vietnamese leader, Ho Chi Minh, who has long been an advocate of an American form of government for an independent Vietnam, and the local Khmer leader, Prince Sihanouk, who wants a constitutional monarchy in the area he represents, Cambodia.

And finally, the issue of China. Since the end of the war, Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek has become increasingly friendly with the Japanese POW's still on Chinese soil, simply to pique Chairman Mao Tse-tung and the Chinese Communist Party, and to use the Japanese troops to occupy territory that he wishes to deny to the Communists. He apparently has no clue that his actions have consequences. The Chinese people are becoming far more disenchanted with him and his policies than ever before. If we can not convince him that his current course is, at best, unwise, we shall then be forced to back another factional leader of the KMT.

As always, advice and input is gladly received.
