From Army Sustainment magazine:
The 173rd Airborne Brigade​ deployed four companies and a battalion headquarters to Poland and the Baltic states in 2014 to conduct combined training with #NATO allies in Operation #AtlanticResolve. Several months later, the brigade participated in Exercise #SaberJunction, a training exercise involving 17 nations operating under the leadership of the Lithuanian Iron Wolf Brigade. Both events presented major logistics tracking challenges, which provided the opportunity to perform a comparative analysis of the Battle Command Sustainment Support System (BCS3) and Microsoft Excel-based logistics status tracking methods.

From Army Sustainment magazine:
By fiscal year 2016, U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM) division G-8s will lose 33 percent of active duty military strength, reducing division #resourcemanagement (RM) capability. To offset reductions, each #FORSCOM infantry, armor, and sustainment brigade MTOE received an S-8 section consisting of an officer-in-charge (captain) and an NCO-in-charge (sergeant first class or staff sergeant). Because of RM personnel reductions, the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) G–8 determined that its brigade S–8s required fund certification authority to help with the workload.

Story
Tagline
This is the official Google+ page for Army Sustainment Magazine: The Army's official professional bulletin on sustainment.
Introduction
Army Sustainment is a bimonthly publication, prepared at the Army Logistics University and published by the Army Combined Arms Support Command, Fort Lee, Virginia, for the Department of the Army. It was established in 1969 by the Department of the Army as the official magazine for Army logistics and was originally known as Army Logistician. It was renamed Army Sustainment in 2009 and now serves as the Army's professional bulletin for the sustainment warfighting function, including logistics, personnel services, and medical logistics and evacuation.

Army Sustainment's mission is to publish timely, authoritative information on Army and Department of Defense sustainment plans, programs, policies, operations, procedures, and doctrine for the benefit of all Army personnel. Its purpose is to provide a medium for disseminating and exchanging sustainment news and information and a forum for expressing original, creative, innovative thought about sustainment.

Here are the ground rules for our Google+ page:

Articles that appear in the publication express the opinions of their authors, not the Department of Defense or any of its agencies, and do not change or supersede official Army publications. The masculine pronoun may refer to either gender.
