FOREWORD

Developing a viable concept of logistics support and fully integrating that support into the overall battle plan are essential to mission success. Experience at the Combat Maneuver Training Center (CMTC), as well as at the other "dirt" Combat Training Centers (CTCs), the National Training Center (NTC), and the Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC), has shown that units have difficulty estimating support requirements, maintaining equipment readiness, establishing area protection and security, and synchronizing logistics operations in the Brigade Support Area (BSA).

This newsletter provides a selection of combat service support (CSS) techniques and procedures to assist not only logisticians, but also maneuver commanders at brigade and battalion/task force levels. The format of this newsletter is patterned after NTC's "Fighting with Fires" (No. 95-6, May 95) and "Fighting with Fires II" (No. 95-10, Jul 95). The articles are authored by CMTC's senior CSS observers/controllers (O/Cs), who have observed improved integration and synchronization of support operations by units that trained with them.
