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 house strength process specialize in the agile wrestle aid (ACS) middle competency because the beginning for the quick projection of sunshine, lean, and deadly air and house energy forces. Lt. Col. J. Reggie Hall’s “Agile strive against aid Doctrine and Logistics Officer education: will we want an built-in Logistics institution for the Expeditionary Air and house 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 setting. In doing so, he analyzes the USAF’s varied 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 procedure. His examine additionally investigates the USAF transition to the air and area expeditionary strength (AEF) operational employment thought because the strength projection mechanism for the expeditionary air and house strength and the reliance on ACS because the basic enabler to spot particular components the place the absence of built-in logistics education affects or most likely degrades venture good fortune. After those elements were competently 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 approach and logistics officer expert profession improvement. The origins, path improvement, and application of the USAF guns college are awarded as a historic reference for developing congruency among doctrine, strategies, and coaching. crimson Flag education workouts are provided as a version for operational requirements-driven education and for example of the chance to combine logistics employment education in latest strive against routines. The guns university is suggested as a version for the improvement of an built-in agile logistics path to enhance multifunctional tactical logistics services. An built-in logistics institution is usually recommended as a method to bridge the distance among logistics officer education and AEF operational employment mechanisms. Colonel Hall’s proposed Agile Logistics college presents a venue to strategically align logistics officer education with expeditionary air and house 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 improving the powerful employment and sustainment of air and area forces.

Be selective, and give those who succeed the opportunity to go to the top! The data indicating a perceived need for a selective, integrated, expert logistics course combined with the empirical confirmation of the Army’s current cross-functional programs suggests that integrated logistics officer training is available. Integrated Logistics Officer Training—How Do We Get It? Examining Air Force solutions to pilot combat proficiency requirements as a model for correcting logistics combat training deficiencies is both practical, given our ACS training shortfalls, and relevant as a baseline for developing realistic expeditionary employment training for Air Force logisticians.
