The October issue of Armor & Mobility pays special attention to those who comprise the ever present and irreplaceable force known as Defense Logistics. In an increasingly integrated world of joint and coalition mission requirements, the U.S. Army acts as the largest single purveyor of U.S. military logistics-related responsibility while the U.S. Army Materiel Command serves as DoD’s hub.
