Corps Support Command (COSCOM)
Prior to the establishment of a Theater, a Corps Support Command, as part of an independent corps, will be used in controlling logistics operations. Combat service support units, organized into brigades, groups, or battalions are directly responsible to the corps support command (COSCOM) commander, who is responsible to the Corps commander for providing adequate support to the Corps. Combat service units are structured to be responsive to Corps requirements for the item and services for which they are responsible. A fixed organization is not prescribed for the Corps; hence, number and types of logistical support units are determined by the mission, combat and combat support units, availability and use of nuclear weapons, terrain and weather within the areas of operations, and composition and capability of the probable hostile forces.
