Abstract : The ongoing debate about doctrinal and conceptual issues on FORCE XXI, will no doubt change not only the way we fight the US Army in the 21st Century but also how we will support the force logistically and subsequently sustain the force. This paper is intended to examine the Ordnance Corps of today and see how ready it is to support the US Army of the 21st Century. This paper will offer some recommendations as to the future direction of the corps in meeting the 21st Century Ordnance Support. What we do today will impact the future logisticians. The recommendations for the future are evolutionary and not revolutionary.
