Abstract On December 11, 2011, General John Allen directed all U.S. forces in Afghanistan to take steps to improve the energy security of the mission. Operational energy, he wrote, is about improving combat effectiveness. It s about increasing our forces endurance, being more lethal, and reducing the number of men and women risking their lives moving fuel. General Allen s memo and the Department s May 2011 Operational Energy Strategy send a consistent message: Improvements in military energy security provide the Department with a unique opportunity to improve efficiency while increasing operational effectiveness. As part of my authorities for advancing military energy security (10 USC 138c), I am required to review DoD's proposed annual budget and report to the Secretary of Defense whether the budget is adequate for meeting the goals of the strategy. This report satisfies that requirement for the FY 2013 budget.
