Deputy Chief of Staff (G-4)

The HQDA, G-4, establishes Army-wide logistics policies and procedures used by more than a quarter million Army logisticians throughout the world. With a staff of nearly 400, including many with recent experience in-theater, the G-4 ensures that policies and resources are in places that are valuable to soldiers in the field.

The coming year presents significant challenges for logisticians as the Army draws down its efforts in Afghanistan focusing on the redistribution, redeployment, reset, and return of tens of thousands of pieces of war-torn equipment while ensuring that all Soldiers in Afghanistan and those next to deploy, are prepared and ready. The G-4's top priority is to ensure that the Army is successful in these logistics endeavors.

Among the important policies being implemented are those that will improve Readiness and Discipline across the Supply, Maintenance, Distribution, and Operational Contract Support domains. Under fiscal constraints it is necessary to adapt logistics structure, processes, and policies to win the current fight while maintaining responsiveness for unforeseen contingencies. It is imperative that logistics innovations are driven to enable agility, effectiveness, and to reduce the cost of doing business.

We are an Army in constant motion, and the G-4 stands ready to continue supporting our soldiers and service members to shape an even more efficient and effective logistics force.
