WANTED: NEW LOGISTICS BRANCH INSIGNIA

Major General Mitchell H. Stevenson, the Commanding General of the Army Combined Arms Support Command (CASCOM), is offering Army logisticians an opportunity to put their creative talents to work and become a part of the history of the Army’s newest branch.

On 2 May, the Chief of Staff of the Army approved the establishment of a Logistics Officer Corps and a new Logistics branch. With the creation of the new branch comes the need for an appropriate insignia.

General Stevenson invites all members of the Army’s extended logistics team to submit design suggestions for the new corps insignia. He is looking for new and imaginative proposals that incorporate the many invaluable contributions that logisticians have made and continue to make to the Army. Sketches of proposed insignia should include a short, succinct English-language motto for the new corps.

Submission of an entry implies that the submitter

  • Assigns to the Department of the Army all rights to the design, including copyright.
  • Disclaims any trademark rights. All entries become the property of the Army, and, at its discretion, the Army will have the sole right to alter or modify any submitted design.
  • Certifies that the design is original, that it has not been published previously, and that it does not infringe on the copyright of any other person or entity.

Proposed designs and accompanying mottos should be emailed to Dr. K.B. Sterling, the CASCOM Historian, at keir.sterling@us.army.mil, or mailed to him at 3901 Adams Avenue, Fort Lee, Virginia 23801. All entries must be received by 31 October.
