Abstract:

During the period from 1962 to 1964, the U.S. Army reorganized its combat divisions under the ROAD concept. The ROAD concept is one of a fixed base of control and combat support units to which are attached varying numbers of maneuver and combat service support units. In this way, the ROAD infantry, mechanized, and armored divisions are formed. Along with this flexible organization is the concept of functionalized combat service support. This thesis investigates the adequacy of the system of officer education to provide trained key logisticians for the ROAD division. The author includes a chapter of recommended steps to improve the adequacy of logistics management training.
