102.4 Discuss the differences between a unit
providing general support to another unit and one
providing direct support to another unit.




Direct support (DS) is were a parent command
provides support to another unit, were as general
support (GS) provides support to their own parent
commander’s force as a whole.
For DS, communications are established between
units but not necessary with GS units.
For DS, the supported unit is relieved of the admin
and logistic burdens not the case for GS.
For DS, the parent command must provide consistent
support by established plans, in a GS, the
commander retains control of organic assets and
attached elements and uses them to benefit the
parent command as a whole.
