United States Army Logistics Branch

Logistics branch insignia, represented by elements from the Quartermaster (key) and Transportation (ship’s wheel) branch insignia, Ordnance regimental insignia (cannon), and Combined Arms Support Command distinctive unit insignia (stylized star).

The officer-only Logistics branch was introduced as part of the creation of a Logistics Corps encompassing the three long-established functional logistics branches of Quartermaster, Ordnance, and Transportation.[1] Established on 1 January 2008, all Active, Reserve, and National Guard Ordnance, Quartermaster and Transportation Corps officers who had completed the Combined Logistics Captains Career Course (CLC3) or earlier versions of an advanced logistics officers course were transferred to the new branch. This move changed the Functional Area 90 (multifunctional logistician) program into an Army basic branch. Logistics officers maintain their regimental affiliations with their prior (secondary specialty) branches.[2]

This move did not affect enlisted soldiers or warrant officers. Additionally, second lieutenants continue to accession into the historical Ordnance, Transportation, or Quartermaster Officer branches, where they remain until they complete CLC3 or a Reserve Components Captains Career Course.[1]

Motto and Creed

I am an American Soldier and a logistician.

I am the heir of Quartermaster, Ordnance, and Transportation Soldiers who have served our Nation in war and peace since 1775.

I provide the Nation’s warfighters of all services what they need, when they need it, where they need it.

I anticipate the warfighter’s need for sustainment in all situations, at all times, under all conditions.

I integrate logistics into the commander’s plans and decisions.

I ensure continuity of support to sustain the momentum of the force.

I respond rapidly to the ever-changing needs of the warfighter.

I improvise to sustain the force with innovation and ingenuity.

I live by the Army values and the Soldier’s Creed.

I lead by example.

I am true to the motto of the Logistics Corps, "Sustinendum Victoriam"— "Sustaining Victory!"[1]
