Abstract:

The study determines operational and organizational concepts to meet subsistence and food service requirements for the army in the field during the period 1965-1970. Based upon evaluation of data from many sources, a field food system is developed, keyed to tactical and logistical concepts of the RODAC-70 and TASTA-70 studies. This system is capable of immediate implementation and evolutionary improvement taking advantage of technological developments as they occur. The study considers application of the field food system in various levels of conflict from cold war to general war and special US Army subsistence responsibilities in a theater of operations.
