3. Logistics Modernization Strategy

The Logistics Annex of the Army Modernization Plan focuses on the objective of "project and sustain the force." It supports the Army Modernization Vision of Land Force Dominance, which flows from the National Military Strategy. In addition, it supports the other four modernization objectives by providing the means to bring them together to achieve Land Force Dominance. This plan assesses systems in the categories of project, sustain, and core support (costs of doing business). Logistics modernization addresses supporting the strategic, operational, and tactical levels of war across the operational continuum. The goal is to project and sustain the U.S. soldier with world-class equipment, in sufficient quantity and as needed, consistent with sound business practices and within funding constraints.
