Abstract : The United States Air Force Logistics and Engineering professions: Maintenance, Supply, Transportation, Contracting, Civil Engineering, Services, and Logistics Plans are the backbone of the Air Force's ability to satisfy the support requirements of its critical mission -- providing our nation deterrence against enemy attack. The initial training each officer in these professions receives is narrow in scope and covers only information particular to his or her field of expertise. The overall interrelationships between all of the logistics and engineering professions as well as the specific knowledge of the officer's career field is essential to give the officer the insight needed to effectively carry out assigned duties. The handbook provides a single source of information on the various career fields but more importantly, the handbook provides insight to the interelationships between the logistics and engineering professions which ensures Air Force mission accomplishment. A must for new logistics and Engineering professionals to read. Contents: The Big Picture: Maintenance: Supply; Transportation; Contracting; Civil Engineering; Services; Logistics PLans; and Air Logistics Centers.
