While you wait for the Summer Edition of Army Sustainment to be published in the coming weeks, you can check out the Spring Edition here https://www.army.mil/armysustainment

Focused on readiness from fort to port, the Spring Edition included a wide variety of insightful interviews and articles covering the most relevant topics on strategic, operational, and tactical readiness.

Be sure to read the edition's introduction by GEN Ed Daly, the Commanding General of U.S. Army Materiel Command, where the Army's senior sustainer offers insight regarding the criticality of setting the theater to all sustainment operations.

Simply put, setting the theater provides strategic depth for sustainment across commodities and all supply classes and ensures that our forces can move quickly to, and then throughout, a theater to accomplish their mission without a cold start to logistics.

It is no secret that Soldier readiness builds lethality - with this in mind, the G-4 is excited to announce this year's winners of the U.S. Army Chief of Staff's Combined Logistics Excellence Awards (CLEA) throughout the week!

Sustaining readiness in maintenance, deployment, and supply operations is a cornerstone of the CLEA. Each of this year’s winners stood out from the crowd thanks to their remarkable contributions to the sustainment community. It will be an honor to highlight their professional excellence, and we’re already looking forward to next year’s competition!

We will announce award winners and runners-up across the CLEA's three categories of Maintenance, Deployment, and Supply Excellence on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, respectively. Be sure to watch this space on Friday as we announce and honor the top three "Best of the Best" awardees.

To learn more about the CLEA and its winners from 2021, be sure to check out last fall's edition of The Snapshot -https://api.army.mil/e2/c/downloads/2021/10/26/77d097ef/october-newslettervno-o.pdf

07/12/2022

On this day 160 years ago, President Lincoln signed into law a resolution from Congress creating the Army Medal of Honor. Let us take time today to recognize the many brave Members of our Armed Forces and their countless acts of valor in combat.

To recognize several of these incredible individuals, below are six stories of Medal of Honor recipients who served as Army logisticians since WWII:

T/5 Eric G. Gibson, Quartermaster, World War II

Near Isola Bella, Italy, on January 28, 1944, Technician 5th Grade Eric G. Gibson bravely led a squad of replacements through enemy fire. He destroyed four enemy positions, killed five German Soldiers and captured two others. Then T/5 Gibson secured the left flank of his company during an attack on a strongpoint. He was killed in action while engaging the enemy.

Sgt. Hulon B. Whittington, Ordnance, World War II

On July 29, 1944, during an enemy armored attack near Grimesnil, France, Sgt. Hulon B. Whittington assumed command of his platoon when the platoon leader and platoon sergeant became missing in action. Whittington mounted a tank, fired point blank and destroyed the leading German tank, which blocked all movement of the enemy convoy consisting of more than 100 vehicles. Whittington's actions inspired his unit to conduct a bayonet charge. When the medic became a casualty, Whittington personally administered first aid to his wounded Soldiers.

Pvt. George Watson, Quartermaster, World War II

Pvt. George Watson was aboard a ship off the coast of New Guinea on March 8, 1943, when the ship was attacked by Japanese bombers and had to be abandoned. Instead of saving himself, Watson stayed in the water for a prolonged time, courageously helping others. Weakened by his efforts, he was eventually dragged down by the sinking ship and drowned.

Lt. Col. John U.D. Page, Transportation, Korean War

Rather than leave when his mission was complete, Lt. Col. John U.D. Page, attached to the 52d Transportation Truck Battalion, chose to stay near the Chosin Resevoir and assist an isolated signal station. Between Nov. 29 and Dec. 10, 1950, Page rescued his driver by breaking up an ambush; created a tactical unit using Soldiers trapped with a Marine unit; exposed himself to enemy fire so casualties could be evacuated; and twice manned a machine gun on the rear deck of a tank and drove the enemy back. Page turned down a second opportunity to reach safety and, instead, returned to assist a departing convoy. When he charged the enemy ahead of the convoy, he was mortally wounded during hand-to-hand combat.

SP4 Larry G. Dahl, Transportation, Vietnam War

In An Khe, Binh Dinh Province, Vietnam on Feb. 23, 1971, Spc. 4th Class Larry G. Dahl's gun truck was sent with two others to assist in the defense of a convoy that had been ambushed by the enemy. The gun trucks entered the ambush area and immediately engaged the enemy. As the fighting subsided, an enemy soldier threw a hand gr***de into Dahl's truck. Instantly realizing the great danger, Dahl called a warning to his companions and threw himself directly onto the gr***de.

Sgt. William W. Seay, Transportation, Vietnam War

On Aug. 25, 1968, near Ap Nhi, Vietnam, Sgt. William W. Seay was on a resupply mission when his convoy was struck by North Vietnamese heavy weapons fire. Seay took up a defensive position and killed 10 Vietnamese soldiers. During the fighting, he left his protective cover twice to pick up a gr***de and throw it back at the enemy, saving the lives of many fellow Soldiers. After returning to his position the second time, Seay continued to direct his Soldiers even though he was seriously wounded. Weak from the loss of blood and with his right hand immobilized, Seay stood up and fired his rifle, killing three North Vietnamese, before he was killed by a sniper's bullet.
