Abstract:

As operations tempo continues to increase commanders must be able to expect that Navy and Marine forces have the ability to insert forces into a country several hundred miles inland and support themselves at least initially with Seabased Logistics. However, this mission will not be executed in isolation from other services operating in the area. In fact the mission in Afghanistan would not have had the same success without mutual service support. The true success was in the mixing of Navy Logistics doctrine with Marine Corps Seabased Logistics doctrine. This coupled with assistance from the Air Forces logistics capabilities brought about the longest-range amphibious raid that has been accomplished to date. The Joint Forces must incorporate all the service transformational logistics concepts Velocity Logistics, Precision Logistics, Seabased Logistics, and Lean Logistics and consolidate them for joint operations as Focused Logistics.
