REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- The U.S. Army Materiel Command kicked-off its 50th anniversary celebration Aug. 1, but the celebration continued through the end of October by highlighting AMC's history.

The 11 part series focused on historical articles from each decade and personal perspective features. The full series is linked.

Army Materiel Command is the Army's premier provider of materiel readiness -- technology, acquisition support, materiel development, logistics power projection, and sustainment -- to the total force, across the spectrum of joint military operations. If a Soldier shoots it, drives it, flies it, wears it, communicates with it or eats it, AMC provides it.
