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 worldwide engagement imaginative and prescient and expeditionary air and area strength technique specialize in the agile wrestle help (ACS) middle competency because the beginning for the quick projection of sunshine, lean, and deadly air and area energy forces. Lt. Col. J. Reggie Hall’s “Agile wrestle help Doctrine and Logistics Officer education: can we want an built-in Logistics tuition for the Expeditionary Air and area Force?” examines the evolution of USAF logistics doctrine, the linkage among doctrine, process, strategies, and coaching courses, and the corresponding software of logistics employment and sustainment features in a deployed surroundings. In doing so, he analyzes the USAF’s different 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 wrestle method. His research additionally investigates the USAF transition to the air and house expeditionary strength (AEF) operational employment proposal because the strength projection mechanism for the expeditionary air and house strength and the reliance on ACS because the fundamental enabler to spot particular components the place the absence of built-in logistics education affects or in all likelihood degrades venture luck. After those components were thoroughly 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 method and logistics officer expert occupation improvement. The origins, path improvement, and application of the USAF guns institution are provided as a historic reference for growing congruency among doctrine, strategies, and coaching. purple Flag education workouts 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 institution is usually recommended as a version for the improvement of an built-in agile logistics direction to advance multifunctional tactical logistics services. An built-in logistics college is suggested as a method to bridge the distance among logistics officer education and AEF operational employment mechanisms. Colonel Hall’s proposed Agile Logistics university presents a venue to strategically align logistics officer education with expeditionary air and house strength technique and ACS doctrine. His suggestion establishes congruency with the USAF’s international engagement imaginative and prescient and leverages logistics as a strength multiplier improving the potent employment and sustainment of air and house forces.

Right now it is the only thing we have that provides practical experience in other disciplines. Similar to the sentiment of compromise in the publication of AFMAN 1-10 without logistics in the title to expedite getting something out to the field, the emergent theme appears to be that some level of cross-functional exposure is better than nothing at all. 410, n = 41) was selective expert level cross-functional school would provide a better career path and perception of the role logistics plays in the implementation of the AEF.

Expert courses such as the Weapons School draw from the collective wisdom of its best and brightest pilots, including experiences learned in combat. Students are taught principles and spend hours perfecting them. Obviously, if we had such training in the logistics area, we would be much better off. • 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.
