FORT HOOD, Texas -- Starting Oct. 1, all Directorate of Logistic facilities throughout the Army will come under the administrative control of the Army Sustainment Command/Army Materiel Command.

Since fiscal 2011, ASC has had operational control of all DOLs.

DOLs are responsible for supplies, services, transportation, and maintenance support to Soldiers.
Until 2001, DOLs were part of the garrison staff. This changed to the Installation Management Activity and then Installation Management Command.

For the past two years, ASC has been planning a transfer of all the DOLs to its oversight per an Army headquarters decision. This will provide centralized management of logistics functions to units in garrison and in the field.

DOLs provide combat service support from food service to ammunition; maintenance to transportation, and uniform items to repair parts. Additionally, they run the dining facilities, household goods and general transportation, general supply warehouses, and laundry services to name a few.

At Fort Hood, DOL is working with the "Mighty" 407th Army Field Support Brigade, ASC, for a seamless transition.
