The Army has released its latest field manual on training, elevating the need for units to prepare to conduct stability operations during combat deployments.

The manual was written at Fort Leavenworth. It comes on the heals of the Army's release earlier this year of its operations manual that emphasized that soldiers must be prepared and proficient in offense, defense and stability skills.

Army officials say its a reflection of the past seven years of conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq and a reality that units will be in a period of "persistent conflict" for years to come.

The manual also makes reference to units training and applying stability skills to homeland security missions, similar to the role played by active duty forces following Hurricane Katrina in 2006 and the potential for another Sept. 11-style attack.
