100 Years Strong
April 12, 2018
"The Army G-4: A Brief History" by Kathleen J. Nawyn tells the story of the office the Army G-4 (Logistics) from its origins in World War I to the present.
Throughout the past century, the Office of the Army G–4, has successfully sustained soldiers and units in peace and war even as the scope, complexity, and difficulty of that mission have increased dramatically.
Though the character and management of U.S. Army logistics have transformed over time and the nation's evolving strategic interests have altered the demands it makes of the Army, one thing has not changed. Senior Defense Department and Army leaders rely on the logisticians of G–4 to ensure that every soldier deployed to a faraway forest or desert has food to eat, a reliable rifle in hand, and the best equipment available.
