Interoperability - Merging Private-to-Public Homeland
Veteran/Credit Union' Mission Statements working with
the National Joint Terrorism Taskforce (NJTTF)
Mission Statement - Purpose and Practice:
Mission statements define an organization's mission'
goals and objectives:
For example, a statement
for veteran' organizations during a mass-evacuation
might say: "VFW Post 007 will provide 24/7 perimeter
security for the Emergency Operation Center (EOC)
located at Camp Alpha between Monday, February 6 and
February 10, 2010. And, American Legion Post #007 will
provide road guards at all intersections along Highway
#42 between Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor between 10 a.m.
and 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 11, 2010.
credit unions have been required to maintain Board
approved "Disaster Recovery/Off-site Records
Reconstruction" programs. The initial 1972 NCUA
Regulation #749 has evolved through "Business
Continuity" planning to a "Worst-case scenario
Contingency Planning" program that includes required
training for Contingency Plan Writers as well as
performance standard response protocols for Critical
Incident Response Teams (CIRTs) during natural
disasters, terrorist attacks, pandemics, or any life
Consequently, credit union mission statements might
simple alert and deploy...
trained credit union' CIRTs to the scene to take
command, than mobilize a "Damage Assessment Team (DAT)"
to declare what level of response is needed from the
credit union's Disaster Recovery Team. Based on CIRT'
and DAT' reports the Disaster Recovery team will set up
an appropriate Emergency Operation Center and begin
forming a Unified Incident Command appropriate for the
crisis type, scope, and potential for scope creep.
Operational Periods 1 - 2 - 3: The Economy of
typically three "Operational Periods" following a large
scale community crisis. During the first, focus is on
the victims "physiological" needs such as the need for
air, food, water, and shelter. During the second
Operational Period the focus is on reconnecting victims
with family, friends, neighbors, and associates who can
provide short term support and assistance. During
Operational Period 3 the focus is on reconstructing
buildings and rebuilding lives.

"Veterans and credit union members
positioned "mission ready" to guard before, deploy
during, and recover after a terrorist attack or natural
through veteran' organizations (Posts, Leagues, etc.)
and credit union members through their credit unions,
chapters, leagues, national and international trade
associations are positioned better than anyone else,
anywhere in the world, anytime in history to respond
during a crisis, no mater what its type, scope or
potential for scope creep. Both are embedded at every
level of both public and private sectors of society.
and credit union members are embedded at every level of
both public and private sectors of society. After a
terrorist attack or natural disaster, it most likely
will be a veteran who's first to the scene and trained
to take command while a nearby credit union member
stands mission ready to take command during the recovery
and reconstruction of a damaged economy.
veterans have received..
basic and advanced individual training (AIT) in a
military occupational specialty (MOS), so they're
mission ready to be cleared into an Emergency Operation
Center (EOC) or Staging Area and deployed in either a
strike or mission force focused to protecting and
defending their homeland.
union members belong..
to a grassroots, volunteer, not-for-profit, financial
cooperative movement organized to serve a defined field
of membership (FOM). Most have received basic and
advanced individual training (AIT) through their credit
union focused on ensuring a family's economic stability,
through their chapter and State league to grow
economic opportunities within a field of membership,
chapter, and State, and through their Credit Union
National Associations, and WOCCU (The World Council of
Credit Unions) to respond to an economic crisis anywhere
in the world.

County Community Credit Union was organized at
our kitchen table in Egg Harbor in the late
1970's and was run out of the trunk of my 1965
Chevy Impala Super Sport for the first few
month. We organized it to serve anyone living or
working in Door County. We merged with Green
Bay's Pioneer Credit Union in 1989 the year Tom
Young took over as President/CEO.
"Door County veterans stand
mission ready to deploy when the scope or
duration of a crisis overwhelms or exhausts Public
sector response assets! Veterans in both the Public and
Private sectors are trained in Incident
Command and Control so stand ready to establish and
manage "Private" sector
Emergency Operation Centers, "Private" sector
Staging Areas deploy to
reinforce Public sector responders during mass
housing-in-place and/or mass evacuations. Veterans in
the Private sector stand mission ready to deploy
under a Private sector Unified command structure
during all three Operational Periods!"
Rich Woldt - CEO The Risk Management Learning
It is precisely the training of individual and the chain
of command from the local through the international
levels of both veteran organizations and the world
credit union movement that position a free society to
stand guard before, defend during, and recovery after
the next terrorist attack or natural disaster. Merging Missions with
The National Joint Terrorism Task Force: Terrorist pose
the greatest threat to our national security. Their
targets include our transportation, food and agriculture
industries, express goal is to destroy our

Focus on "Economy of Force" during each operational period through
the systematic deployment of Homeland Security "Public-to-Private" partnerships.
Stand U.S. chartered veteran organizations mission ready to deploy
"Private" sector Critical Incident Response Teams (CIRTs) and
