Title Rebalancing to the Pacific: Re-Examining Army Transportation Expeditionary Capability.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 34p
Personal Author R. M. Villalobos
Abstract As the priority of U.S. interests shifts to the Pacific, many anticipate China will attempt to employ an anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) strategy to limit the influence of U.S. military power in the region. To mitigate this A2/AD strategy, the Air Force and Navy are developing the doctrine of Air-Sea Battle and the Navy and Marine Corps are developing Sea Basing doctrine and capabilities. For the Army, the anticipated strategic environment mandates a more expeditionary force manned, equipped, and trained to meet emerging A2/AD challenges in the Pacific. The shift in priority to the Asia-Pacific region directed by the 2012 National Security Strategy creates an Army transportation force structure capability gap including Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leadership, Personnel and Facilities (DOTMLPF) as it relates to a more expeditionary force. Given the imminent fiscal constraints, the Army must mitigate risk across all DOTMLPF.
