Handbook 10-55
August 2010


The following collection of articles is primarily focused on the sustainment of the Army and Marine Corps during tactical and strategic missions as joint or coalition forces. This newsletter discusses integrating joint team efforts in support of the warfighter. These articles include tactical hybrid conditions in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, strategic sustainment missions for war reserves/preposition supplies, research, product development, and joint asset visibility. Issues address command and control, communications, ground lines of communication, non-doctrinal missions, training, equipment, system interoperability, and lessons learned. This diverse mix is not all-inclusive. Articles pertain to the current logistics systems or operational employments used by the Army and Marine Corps. This effort captures relevant lessons and observations published in professional journals to inform Soldiers, Marines, and Department of Defense (DOD) users in developing best practices. Most articles were written by subject-matter experts and/or the service member in theater, thus reflecting accurate lessons learned through real-world experience.

Because logistical support teams have garnered much attention in the past, this newsletter attempts to document challenges and efforts in synchronizing the transformation to the asynchronous battlefield. These teams' innovative solutions and perspectives help design adaptive logistics support providing flexible sustainment. Meeting joint warfighter requirements at the tactical and operational echelons is crucial. Logistics systems must serve warfighter demands as an enabler, not as disabler. In many instances, the ideas presented in these articles are personal opinion and may not reflect approved doctrine. The recommendations in these articles should always be validated with the latest approved designs and the most current Army, Marine Corps, and/or joint doctrine.

CALL acknowledges and thanks the professional journals and authors who permitted the reproduction of these articles.
