Abstract : There is a need for a CONUS based Logistics Power Projection Platform. The Logistics Power Projection Platform brings together an Army depot, DLA distribution site and other elements to form a synergistic package that aids in the rapid transit of logistics to the CONUS based force and to the commander in the field. Red River Army Depot is the prime example of a successfully operating Logistics Power Projection Platform. Key elements for consideration are the capacity of a depot for growth, sufficient infrastructure to assume expanded missions, ready access to rail, highway, air and sea transport facilities and short-haul driving proximity to the CONUS based forces being served.
