The new issue of Army Sustainment focuses on the important topic of force projection, our ability to quickly get to the fight. Lt. Gen. Aundre Piggee encourages you to put it on the top of your reading list and learn from the commentary our leaders provide.

The Army's senior logistician, Gen. Gus Perna, says the Army has decreased by months the time units need to move from stateside to overseas areas of operation and details what more we can do to mobilize quickly.

Two leaders reflect on the importance of readiness in quickly moving troops and equipment. The USTRANSCOM commander, Gen. Darren McDew explains in "Ready, Set, Globe" how he has postured assets to support an immediate and decisive response to a threat. In an interview called "Mastering the Deployment Basics," retired Lt. Gen. Patricia McQuistion explores how training, partnerships, and technology are improving the Army's readiness to play "away games."

The CASCOM commander, Maj. Gen. Paul Hurley, and Stacey Lee highlight how to embrace an expeditionary deployment mindset by drawing from past experiences. Four other general officers discuss projecting the force to fight tonight: Maj. Gen. Duane Gamble, Maj. Gen. Kurt Ryan, Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Drushal, and Brig. Gen. James Moore; and from the Joint Staff, Maj. Gen. Kenneth Jones previews a future joint logistics enterprise.

The always popular Hip-Pocket Guide sums it all up with a handy checklist on responsibilities in projecting the force. Download and save it all. Read it on your mobile, tablet, or desktop. Share it with your colleagues on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.
