Abstract:

The Marine Corps does not develop professional logisticians. At best, it trains personnel in the basic techniques of the special skill sets within their assigned military occupational specialty MOS. Logisticians stagnate due to a lack of emphasis on professional development from leadership and a training and education system lacking the flexibility to meet the demands of a high operational tempo and the basic need for continuing education. The Marine Corps must implement new teaching methods such as mobile training teams, historical vignettes, tactical decision games, and a reading program in order to cultivate a professional and adaptive corps of logisticians.
