Abstract:

The story of the 9th Infantry Division Motorized logistical support concept has yet to be told. Critics do not fully understand its capabilities. The Division presents the best of both worlds--combining the austere structuring of the Light Divisions with the mobility and firepower of the Heavy Divisions. This organization is best suited for accomplishing AirLand Battle Doctrine. The essay provides a quick overview of the logistical support concepts and structure. Recommendations are made to further refine this Division as well as those structured under the Army of Excellence flag. The elimination of the brigade and division logistics sections is but one example of the forward thinking presented in this essay.
