Abstract : Naval Doctrine Command is developing, and the Navy and Marine Corps evaluating, an overarching concept for naval operations in the littorals by a Naval Expeditionary Task Force (NETF). Comprising a Carrier Battle Group (CVBG), an Amphibious Ready Group (ARG), and a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), the NETF will be a key part of a joint or multi-national force in 2010. The NETF might be an enabling force, or may even transition to a Joint Task Force (JTF). It is evident that 'focused logistics' and 'just-in-time logistics' will be key drivers for future sustained naval operations; in order for the NETF to conduct operations in the littorals, some form of sea-based logistic support will also be required. Although the Combat Logistics Coordinator (CLC) concept adequately meets the logistics needs of today's NETF, it may not in the future. The CLC position is the weak link in the evolving NETF organization. Possible alternatives to how the CLC role and functions might best be optimized in the future are explored in this paper.
