Army Materiel Command Leadership Team Assesses Logistics Role in Pacific PDF Print E-mail

A leadership team from the U.S. Army Materiel Command, or AMC, recently assessed the organization's role in South Korea, a country where the United States has sustained a 60-plus year alliance touted as one of history's most successful partnerships.

AMC Commander Gen. Dennis L. Via led a team there in early February that included the organization's highest ranking civilian, most senior enlisted leader, and top logistician. The team evaluated the capabilities and requirements of the command to respond to the needs of commanders and forces in the Pacific region.

In his third command visit to South Korea as AMC commander, Via said he was impressed with recent modernizations and praised cost-sharing efforts that are providing support for labor, supplies, services and construction.

The United States invests about a $1 billion annually to station U.S. forces on the Korean peninsula, while South Korea contributed about $867 million to the effort in 2014, following a recent agreement spanning to 2018. That share stimulates the economy through salaries to host-nation workers and supply and service contracts.
