      Book Description: Soon after Operation IRAQI FREEDOM began in March , RAND Arroyo Center began a project, completed in January , to produce an authoritative account of the planning and execution of combat and stability operations in Iraq and to recommend changes to Army plans, operational concepts, doctrine, and Title 10 functions. The rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command (ESC) is a subordinate command of th Theater Sustainment Command (United States).

      OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM AND LOGISTICS TRANSFORMATION On 30 March , Congressman Joel Hefley gaveled into order a hearing on logistics lessons from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and on Army logistics transformation generally. The Congressman was serving as the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) Subcommittee on Readiness.   Consequently, during the early months of Operation Iraqi Freedom, sustainment units made War Rig–like adaptions to compensate for their vehicles’ lack of protection and security. Under current equipment authorizations and the Tactical Wheeled Vehicle Strategy, sustainment units are as demilitarized as before but with an enduring.

      Although Army units always had sufficient sustainment support to accomplish their missions and execute operations as planned, during Operation Iraqi Freedom's major combat operations through the fall of Baghdad, on-hand supplies held by maneuver forces were lower than planned for all commodities except fuel. This was driven by limited theater transportation capacity. In several regions, the U.S. has negotiated agreements with allies to provide host-nation support. During the early stages of Operation Iraqi Freedom, for example, the Kuwaiti government provided bulk fuel for American forces. Similarly, coalition military partners may provide specific logistical capabilities to U.S. forces, and vice versa.
