In a national security environment where deficit reduction is imperative and defense budget cuts will require a scaled down force structure, coupled with a post-conflict era with diminishing requirements in Iraq and Afghanistan, what is the future of Army Materiel Command s AMC Army Field Support Brigades AFSBs In 2006, AFSBs were formed with the mission to integrate acquisition, logistics, and technology ALT capabilities in support of the operational and tactical level commanders across the full spectrum of military operations. The AFSB can function in a variety of scenarios ranging from a hostile environment to contingency operations such as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief missions. However, despite a new era of declining budgets, constrained resources, and Army force reductions, this paper posits that the AFSB will remain relevant to the Army and should remain part of the Army s future force structure.
