LOGISTICS BRANCH IMPLEMENTATION UPDATE

The implementation of the Logistics branch is pending final review from the new Chief of Staff of the Army. Currently, the implementation is expected to occur early in fiscal year 2008. Once the final date is confirmed, the MILPER message regarding the implementation of the Logistics branch will be released.

 
Cover: The publication of this issue of Army Logistician coincides with the planned implementation of the Logistics branch on 1 July. In a historic development, this new basic branch will bring together officers in the grades of captain and above from the long-established Quartermaster, Ordnance, and Transportation branches. The cover symbolically depicts this change as the insignia of the Logistics branch unites logisticians engaged in quartermaster, ordnance, and transportation missions. The photos also show the essentials of logistics visibility as defined by the Director for Logistics, J4, on the Joint Staff: (moving clockwise from upper left) supplies in process, in storage, in transit, and in use. See the articles on pages 1 and 3.
