Abstract : The revised naval strategic maritime concept embodied in the U.S. Naval Forces White Paper ... From the Sea requires a concurrent examination of the naval operational logistics elements necessary to support that concept. In the absence of any specific doctrinal naval operational logistics framework, this paper proposes the adoption of five fundamental naval logistics elements which must always be considered in naval logistics planning at the operational level of war and operations other than war. These elements include logistics organization considerations, establishment of logistics priorities in-theater, preparation of the logistics theater, security of operational logistics assets, and direction of logistics axis development to best support the line of operation. Each naval operational logistics element described enhances the commander's ability to adequately address and plan for operational branches and sequels, while providing a necessary adjunct to joint and naval doctrine for naval operational logistics.
