To Be a Soldier offers the US Army’s two capstone doctrinal manuals in one place for the first time. This guide begins with the Army’s introductory text, FM-1 The Army, which explains the Army’s origin and purpose, its mission and values, how it functions as a portion of a joint military force in combat, and the importance of the individual soldier in a larger fighting force. When readers have learned the fundamentals of the Army, FM-3 Operations provides foundational knowledge of the full spectrum of Army operations. This manual is the Army’s principal tool for the instruction of today’s soldiers in the art and science of warfare, and has been recently updated to discuss counter-insurgency and hybrid threats in addition to conventional land operations. To Be a Soldier is the reader’s guide to the Army’s most fundamental knowledge by offering its two capstone texts in one place. The information in this handbook forms the basis for all the knowledge conveyed in any subsequent Army field manuals, making it required reading for all soldiers and readers with interest in US Army training and operations.

You already know that logistics is hard, it should not be, but it just is. The key components to supply and movement consist of receive, store, issue, and move. It should be that simple. Bottom line: it just is not that simple. There are too many moveable parts where the synergy of the operation could provide a scenario where the combined requirements needed to sustain a theater are greater than the sum of their individual effects or capabilities. . This book outlines some of these logistical components and their doctrinal relationship to the operation, as well as provides some new ideas. . The chapters are formatted in a fashion that offer the reader the doctrinal concept that the operation or function is based on, and then presents new theories on how to better execute the logistical function or capability as it relates to the operation. . The goal is to discuss those hard logistical topics and their conception to improve the general knowledge and understanding on "why it happens", and "how we can improve the outcome".

This book is a guide for Logistician's (military or civilian) in the execution of Movement Control and Distribution Management. - Provides examples of procedures and guidance utilized by our armed forces operating in Iraq to date, as well as being reviewed as emerging doctrine for the future. - Presents information for staff management that incorporates manual and automated procedures to monitor and track movement and commodities on today's modern battlefields. - Provides a process to utilize data from different automation systems, which do not talk to one another, as well as incorporates manual procedures to develop a system to monitor and track movement and commodities on today's modern battlefields. By doing this, we have provided the commander with a focused staff battle rhythm that works. Due to the Army Transformation and Spiral Development, there is a lack of documentation on just how to interpret and implement the new concepts and automation applications, and synchronize their usage and development. Many of the ideas and process in this book have not advanced beyond the conjectural level. The work covered is an initial effort to make operational these new ideas and procedures and provide them as training in a classroom and wartime environment. The uniqueness of the logistical mission and the technology of these services, this book may be guided towards a rather select audience. But due to the tactics and methods being used by our enemies in the field, it is important to understand that at all levels, the ability to have visibility and command and control of movement within our battle space is essential.

This book was written in response to questions that I get from various people of many different denominations. Many people today claim to be too busy to do any serious studying of scripture. My response is we have to, at some point, make time. The collection of essays in this book, hopefully, will shed some light, and answer some of your questions. I was literally stunned by some of the beliefs I was hearing from different christians I had the opportunity to hold discussions with. As Paul told Timothy, and others, it is absolutely imperative that we safeguard the gospel from corruption. Is your Church safeguarding the Gospel?

The doctrine discussed in this manual is nested with ADP 3-0, Operations, and describes the sustainment warfighting function. The endurance of Army forces is primarily a function of their sustainment and is essential to retaining and exploiting the initiative. Sustainment provides the support necessary to maintain operations until mission accomplishment. The relationship between sustainment and operation is depicted in introductory figure-1 on page vi.Sustainment must be integrated and synchronized with operations at every level to include those of our joint and multinational partners. Sustainment depends on joint and strategic links for strategic airlift, sealift, intratheater airlift, and strategic and theater-level supply support. Sustainment depends on our host nation (HN) partners to provide infrastructure and logistics support necessary to ensure both maneuver forces and followon sustainment are delivered to right place, at the right time, and in an operable condition.

The Army believes that the U.S. will continue to be engaged in an era of ¿persistent conflict¿ -- a period of protracted confrontation among states, non-state, and individual actors increasingly willing to use violence to achieve their political and ideological ends. This manual is a revolutionary departure from past doctrine. Commanders will employ offensive, defensive, and civil support operations simultaneously as part of an interdependent joint force to seize, retain, and exploit the initiative, accepting prudent risk to create opportunities to achieve decisive results. This ed. will take us into the 21st century urban battlefields among the people without losing our capabilities to dominate the higher conventional end of the spectrum of conflict.
