Available online at:  http://www.dtic.mil/doctrine/jel/doddict/data/f/02154.html
Actions taken to prevent or mitigate hostile actions against Department of Defense personnel (to include family members), resources, facilities, and critical information.  These actions conserve the force's fighting potential so it can be applied at the decisive time and place and incorporate the coordinated and synchronized offensive and defensive measures to enable the effective employment of the joint force while degrading opportunities for the enemy.  Force protection does not include actions to defeat the enemy or protect against accidents, weather, or disease.
