AGILE Logistics of the future is going to require some of these key elements to be successful. Each will play a pivotal role depending on what type of mission #Logistics is supporting and what environment we are operating in.

But the real question is "WHAT ELSE and WHEN?"

We are looking forward to discussing these topics and more leading up to and during the Logistics Officer Association's #LOA2021.

LOA Ambassador Mindmap

Our Logistics Officer Association Ambassadors are in 3 time zones, on 2 different continents, and separated by a very large body of water. When they are not doing their day job which is either launching jets, running parts around Europe, testing new AF systems or working with industry in EWI ... they found enough time on Halloween to explain we must address Zoom rules before we look at the #Logistic #Mindmap next week..

Never a dull moment in #Logistics #Maintenance

Leaders Mentors with Chelsey

What does mentorship mean to you?

Mentorship is a personal passion of mine. I just ❤️ it.

It means everything to me. It gives me an opportunity to listen, learn, share, and connect and most importantly help others.

It was nice to hear Chelsey talk about the value of having a Mentor outside of work.

“If our aircraft, missiles, and weapons are the teeth of our military might, then logistics is the muscle, tendons, and sinews that make the teeth bite down and hold on— logistics is the jawbone!” - Lt. Gen. Leo Marquez

While many people are sleeping, Maintainers are still hard at work...

Our teammates from the 28 AMXS at Ellsworth AFB, shared a picture of their “office” just two nights ago. Their mission doesn’t stop when the weather rolls in. Instead, this team works long hours, sometimes in extreme conditions, with pride & grit to tame the beast known as the B-1.

And while nights like these may have been a “no-go” for some...guess who was out there? Maintainers!

Good day everyone! My name is Steven Amaya and I am an MBA student at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I am currently writing my master thesis on Green Logistics Indexes and analysis and I am gathering data on companies actions in making their supply chain environmentally sustainable. I am encouraging all Logistics Managers, Experts, and/or Consultants to partake in my survey! I ask you answer thoroughly and honestly in order to gather precise data. The survey takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete and can be done on mobile or desktop. Thank you again for your time and have a wonderful day! Steven G. Amaya #supplychain #data #logistics Link to the survey:
Asking for advice: Since arriving to my base, I noticed there was no active LOA but plenty of officers and some are showing interest. There was one in the past but it died away a while ago. I want to bring it back to life! Any recommendations on (re-)starting LOA at a base?
Team, I am working on my Master’s thesis, which aims at improving wooden pallet (skid) disposition process for USAF using effective reverse logistics supply chain principles. Your feedback is greatly appreciated as it will help identify potential performance gaps across military organizations. Your personal information and responses will be kept secured and anonymous. Please take out 5 mins of your valuable time to complete this 9 question survey, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YZCSQ5Q Thank you in advance! Respectfully, Himanshu Chopra
Loggies, You may have heard me say that "I stand on the shoulders of giants." MGen Harris was one of those giants. I met Gen Harris when I was a Lt attending SAC Maintenance University on a field trip to Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center. I didn't realize her significance in Air Force history then. I attended her funeral today and joined many others in saying goodbye to a true pioneer. Team Dover Mission Generators under the leadership of Cols Tyler Schaff and Chris May supported a C-17 fly-by in Gen Harris' honor. May she rest in peace....
Thanks to LOA for a great Symposium! I know from personal experience how much work goes into putting an event like this on. Great to see the energy of the young loggies out there. Again, thanks!
Dialed into the LOA and AOA Presidents telecon today. What all stars. LOA’s local chapters are where the rubber meets the road and my hats off to the leadership that bring it all together. Such amazing things happening within your chapters ! Thank you for all you do !
Congratulations to the 341st Maintenance Group, 341st Missile Wing for winning the 2017 Phoenix Award. They are the best of the best field maintenance unit in the Department of Defense!
