Abstract:

Slowly but inexorably in fact as well as on paper, many of the supply activities of the four Services are being integrated within the Department of Defense. Although most of the still unintegrated logistics activities tend to be peculiar in some way to a particular Service, and so should never be centralized, there are still many supply items that are sufficiently common to justify more coordinated management. Some of these possibilities, and particularly a reconstitution and extension of the present Interservice Supply Support Committee, are examined in this article.
