Chapter 4: Combat Service Support
Topic B: Maintain the Force

Subtopic 3: Retrograde of Equipment in OIF

Observation Synopsis

The increased consumption of CL IX by divisions and other units operating in theater has placed increased burdens on the wholesale supply system. Of particular significance are major assemblies and line replaceable units (LRUs) that require repair at depot level and are critically short in the wholesale system. It is therefore critical that units quickly return unserviceable CL IX repairables to the wholesale supply system.

Lessons Learned

  • Units need to develop, implement, and strictly enforce a CL IX unserviceable and serviceable retrograde plan.
  • Unit's plan needs to ensure exchange items are returned to the appropriate site for repair.
