By Lieutenant Colonel, USAF, J. Reggie Hall, Air University Press

The Air strength worldwide engagement imaginative and prescient and expeditionary air and house strength approach specialize in the agile wrestle aid (ACS) middle competency because the beginning for the fast projection of sunshine, lean, and deadly air and area energy forces. Lt. Col. J. Reggie Hall’s “Agile wrestle aid Doctrine and Logistics Officer education: can we desire an built-in Logistics university 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 capabilities in a deployed atmosphere. In doing so, he analyzes the USAF’s assorted 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 finds a spot among USAF logistics doctrine and expeditionary air and house strength strive against method. His learn additionally investigates the USAF transition to the air and area expeditionary strength (AEF) operational employment proposal because the strength projection mechanism for the expeditionary air and area strength and the reliance on ACS because the basic enabler to spot particular parts the place the absence of built-in logistics education affects or probably degrades project good fortune. After those elements were appropriately 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, direction improvement, and software of the USAF guns tuition are awarded as a historic reference for developing congruency among doctrine, strategies, and coaching. pink Flag education routines are provided as a version for operational requirements-driven education and for instance of the chance to combine logistics employment education in present strive against routines. The guns college is usually recommended as a version for the advance of an built-in agile logistics path to advance multifunctional tactical logistics services. An built-in logistics tuition is suggested as a way to bridge the space 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 area strength technique and ACS doctrine. His advice establishes congruency with the USAF’s worldwide engagement imaginative and prescient and leverages logistics as a strength multiplier improving the potent employment and sustainment of air and area forces.

19 Our increased expeditionary operations tempo has served to illuminate a long-existing absence in cross-functional logistics officer training and capability. The effects of manpower reductions and increased operations tempo—combined with the turning away from a containment-focused garrison force to a projection-focused expeditionary force—has exacerbated a preexisting condition which we can no longer mitigate with massive manpower. Our doctrine substantiates the reality of this requirement, AFDD 2, the Air Force “capstone operational document,” authoritatively prescribes cross-functional logistics tasks as key responsibilities of the COMAFFOR (A-4) director of logistics staff assistant.

Gen Michael E. Ryan, former USAF chief of staff, describes the cultural change and expeditionary mindset shift by saying “we are in the process of a significant transition in the way we do business, and this will require embracing a new culture and an approach to operations that emphasize rapid response. 20 USAF operational doctrine formalizes this paradigm and organizational shift in the employment of air and space power by subordinating Air Force elements within a Joint Task Force under a COMAFFOR.
