When the media publishes lists of large employers, the US Department of Defense (DoD) usually takes the #1 spot, with a combined total of over three million active duty military personnel, civilian personnel, and members of the Reserves and National Guard. Not only is the DoD big; it also has the hallmarks of a bureaucratic organization - a strict hierarchical chain of command, documented rules and procedures, and a division of labor into specialized roles.
Within the DoD, the US Army provides combat troops, equipment, and capabilities. The US Army also provides logistic and other executive agent functions for the other Services, as well as support during national emergencies by assisting civil authorities in maintaining emergency preparedness throughout the nation. Our speaker at the June 6th Professional Development meeting, Captain Adebayo Adeleke, has served the US Army in a variety of logistics roles in the countries of Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Japan, and the United States. Come listen to Captain Adeleke, currently Operation Officer for the 3rd Battalion, 381st Regiment, at Grand Prairie, Texas, discuss “Tactical Logistics in the Deployed Environment.”
