Agile Combat Support Doctrine and Logistics Officer by Lieutenant Colonel, USAF, J. Reggie Hall, Air University

By Lieutenant Colonel, USAF, J. Reggie Hall, Air University Press

The Air strength international engagement imaginative and prescient and expeditionary air and area strength procedure specialize in the agile wrestle aid (ACS) middle competency because the starting place for the speedy projection of sunshine, lean, and deadly air and area strength forces. Lt. Col. J. Reggie Hall’s “Agile strive against help Doctrine and Logistics Officer education: can we desire an built-in Logistics university for the Expeditionary Air and area Force?” examines the evolution of USAF logistics doctrine, the linkage among doctrine, method, strategies, and coaching courses, and the corresponding software of logistics employment and sustainment features in a deployed atmosphere. In doing so, he analyzes the USAF’s assorted logistics officer education courses to figure out if there's a deficiency in interdisciplinary logistics employment and sustainment education. He ascertains even if that education shortfall unearths a spot among USAF logistics doctrine and expeditionary air and house strength strive against technique. His examine additionally investigates the USAF transition to the air and area expeditionary strength (AEF) operational employment notion because the strength projection mechanism for the expeditionary air and area strength and the reliance on ACS because the basic enabler to spot particular parts the place the absence of built-in logistics education affects or possibly degrades undertaking luck. After those elements were effectively analyzed and interpreted, Colonel corridor highlights the military logistics officer education philosophy as a benchmark to gauge the effectiveness of built-in logistics education on expeditionary technique and logistics officer expert occupation improvement. The origins, direction improvement, and software of the USAF guns college are offered as a historic reference for growing congruency among doctrine, strategies, and coaching. crimson Flag education routines are provided as a version for operational requirements-driven education and to illustrate of the chance to combine logistics employment education in present strive against workouts. The guns university is suggested as a version for the improvement of an built-in agile logistics path to increase multifunctional tactical logistics services. An built-in logistics institution is usually recommended as a method to bridge the space among logistics officer education and AEF operational employment mechanisms. Colonel Hall’s proposed Agile Logistics college offers a venue to strategically align logistics officer education with expeditionary air and area strength process and ACS doctrine. His suggestion establishes congruency with the USAF’s international engagement imaginative and prescient and leverages logistics as a strength multiplier bettering the powerful employment and sustainment of air and house forces.

3 Wise Builders—Army Combined Logistics Captains Career Course Established in 1993, CLCC is one of those revolutionary training courses General Depuy envisioned. Created to meet the logistical challenges of an expeditionary Army, CLCC 43 FAIRCHILD PAPER produces multifunctional logisticians better prepared to manage the requirements of supporting combat. 4 The course is divided into three phases and prepares officers to serve in positions requiring multifunctional skills similar to those performed by an Air Force COMAFFOR (J-4) director of logistics.

In fact, it is not uncommon for company grade logisticians to be responsible for any or all logistics functions at a deployed location. 18 An account from a transportation officer deployed in 1998 to Tuzla Air Base (AB), Bosnia, as the Provisional AB group director of logistics vividly captures the significance of the current logistics-training dilemma: There I was, watching the snowfall, contemplating the upcoming Thanksgiving Day. It seemed that everything was going well at my deployed location until the storm struck.

Other service logisticians are not stovepiped. We need at least an operational-level understanding of all Air Force logistics. The accounts of recently deployed logisticians and empirical data presented later in this study confirm the thoughts above. The future is now; junior officers are currently performing cross-functional duties and serving as senior logistics representatives in deployed locations. Opportunity Costs of Strategic Misalignment—ACS Doctrine and Training Gap The survey results and analyses of current logistics officer training programs reveal a gap between doctrine and training.
