There is little debate regarding the early U.S. successes during Operation Enduring Freedom. Indeed, the campaign was relatively quick with few losses and the preponderance of U.S. strategic objectives were accomplished. Likewise, there were no simultaneous attacks in the same or other theaters and post 911 threats to the U.S. homeland did not significantly challenge Army capability. Yet, despite the successes, what implications for the future should be concluded from this limited campaign Do the results reinforce the goals of Army Transformation, specifically the logistics goals, or do they suggest development of a new paradigm This paper examines selected logistics observations from Operation Enduring Freedom within the historical context of the Armys experiences in previous smaller-scale contingency operations, and provides implications and recommendations for the Objective Force logistics structure.
