Abstract:

The study examines the military worth of the Unified Logistics Command concept as proposed by the Blue Ribbon Defense Panel in July 1970. To establish a frame of reference, the author establishes an overview of the scope and complexity of Defense logistics operations, and identifies the themes of reducing duplication and waste and the need for increasing efficiency as being recurrent ones. The history of armed forces unification is traced from its conceptual phase through the late 1960s. Deficiencies are reviewed in order to provide a backdrop against which the current Defense logistics organization evolved.
