Title: Key personnel (Liaison Section)
Dialogue: The liaison section is supervised by the liaison officer (LNO). The two teams of the liaison section provide liaison to a reinforced FA headquarters when the battalion is assigned a mission of GSR or R. Two teams are necessary in order to accommodate frequent changes in tactical mission assignment. The LNO is assisted by a Liaison Sergeant and Liaison Specialist. They advise the supported commander on the capabilities, limitations, and disposition of the battalion. They recommend employment options and assist in integrating the battalion's fires with those of the supported unit. They also update the battalion on the supported unit situation and any projected requirements.
