ARMY LOGISTICIAN IS CHANGING TO ARMY SUSTAINMENT

Army Logistician will change its name to Army Sustainment beginning with the September-October 2009 issue.  That issue will also commemorate the bulletin's 40th anniversary.  The bulletin will be renamed Army Sustainment to reflect expanded coverage of the sustainment warfighting function, including logistics, human resources, financial management, and medical logistics.  In the future, Army Sustainment will be the Department of the Army's professional bulletin for sustainment, with the mission to publish timely, authoritative information on Army and Defense sustainment plans, programs, policies, operations, procedures, and doctrine for the benefit of all sustainment personnel.  Army Sustainment is scheduled to "hit the stands" the week of 18 August.




 
Cover: A shower, laundry, and clothing repair (SCLR) specialist with the 549th Quartermaster Company, 68th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, from Fort Carson, Colorado, folds clothes at Patrol Base Murray, Iraq. Before a SLCR team arrived at the patrol base, Soldiers had to wash their laundry by hand or send it on a convoy to Forward Operating Base Falcon and then wait 3 to 4 days to get it back. With the SCLR team deployed, Soldiers had to wait only 24 hours to get their laundry back. The article beginning on page 32 describes how SCLR teams provided clean clothes, hot showers, and textile repairs to Soldiers in the field. Articles beginning on pages 24 , 27 , 36 , 38 and 42 discuss other support provided by units under the 1st Sustainment Brigade in Iraq. (Photo by SPC Andrea Merritt)
