Abstract : Alerted for deployment on 9 August 1990, the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) was one of the first Army divisions to deploy to Saudi Arabia to participate in Desert Shield. The division experienced the full range of logistics support... from bare base to mature theater. This paper, as a Personal Experience Monograph, addresses logistics support of the 101st during Operation Desert Shield/Storm from the perspective of the Commander of the Supply and Transport Battalion of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). The paper uses the chronology of the deployment as the vehicle to identify and address logistics issues as they occurred. It identifies lessons learned and provides recommendations for corrections.
