Abstract:

In London, England, on 6 July 1990, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization issued the London Declaration on a Transformed North Atlantic Alliance. The document outlines the basis for a new NATO defense strategy. A key element is the predominant use of multinational corps-size forces in contrast to national corps as the main defensive effort of the alliance. the focus of this study is the impact of multinationalism on logistic support concept from a U.S. interest perspective. The specific issues of who should be responsible for logistic support, and how should logistic support be accomplished in a multinational corps are addressed. A discussion of the advantages and disadvantages associated with possible courses of action is presented and a methodology for comparison, selecting the best choice, is offered. A recommendation as to how the U.S. should proceed in transition to the new strategy is also given.
