1st Logistical Command
1st Logistical Command On Sept. 20, 1950, the 1st Logistical Command was activated at Fort McPherson, Ga. Its early years were spent there and later at Fort Bragg, N.C. In July 1958, 1st Log was designated a major unit of the Strategic Army Corps, and during the next three years it was responsible for administrative and logistical support to contingency forces of the corps. During the Berlin Crisis, 1st Log deployed to France and became a major unit of the Communications Zone, Europe. The 1st Logistical Command came to the Republic of Vietnam in April 1965 with a force of only 35 officers and enlisted men. With the build up of U.S. forces in South Vietnam, the command quickly mushroomed to a strength of more than 50,000 soldiers. In June 1970, the 1st Logistical Command was reduced in strength and consolidated with USARV. A U.S. Army combat operation in South Vietnam has never been delayed or canceled due to the lack of supplies. This is the record of the 1st Logistical Command, which supplied and supported all U.S. Army units and other U.S. and free world forces serving in the Republic of Vietnam.
