Abstract:

Logistics means having the right thing, at the right place, at the right time1 This definition does not specify a difference between aviation and ground logistics. Marine Corps ground logistics and aviation logistics both work to ensure Marines have assets they need when they need them. The Marine Corps aviation logistics fields officer corps is divided into two separate military occupational specialties MOS aviation supply officers 6602 and aviation maintenance officers 6002. These officers hold separate titles and billets but essentially are focused on the same tasks aircraft readiness and supporting the war fighter. The United States Marine Corps should combine the unrestricted aviation supply and aviation maintenance officer fields into the single aviation logistics field in order to provide combatant commanders a diversified aviation logistics community, a more flexible personnel force, and more experienced senior leadership.
