Military Prepositioning: Observations on Army and Marine Corps Programs During Operation Iraqi Freedom and Beyond
[Technical Report, Congressional Testimony]
GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The importance of prepositioned stocks was dramatically illustrated during OIF. While they faced some challenges, the Army and Marine Corps relied heavily on prepositioned combat equipment and supplies to decisively defeat the Iraqi military. They both reported that prepositioned stocks were a key factor in the success of OIF. Prepositioned stocks provided most of the combat equipment used and, for the most part, this equipment was in good condition and maintained high readiness rates. However, the Armys prepositioned equipment included some older models of equipment and shortfalls in support equipment such as trucks, spare parts, and other supplies.
