    “The drill’s expectation was to achieve a successful realistic outcome that can be reached without impacting the short and long term objectives mandated by the guidelines established by the Army’s GCSS-A fielding timeline,” said Willie Able, GCSS-Army Project Manager representative, GCSS-Army Operation Support Deployment/Fielding Division in Petersburg, Virginia.
    The GCSS-A’s mission is to provide the Army with modernized logistics and financial capabilities, master data management and seamless business prices integration. It will also present the supply, maintenance, property accountability operations and associated financial data in a consolidated view of the logistics and financial business areas. Develop, deploy and sustain the solution to the total Army.
    “The rest of the Army has already got after this problem, but here in the operational environment you have a couple constrains that impact how smooth that transition will be from legacy systems to the GCSS-Army system,” said 1st TSC Mission Readiness Branch Chief Warrant Officer Steven K. Dewey. “There are significant challenges ahead as we move forward, but we are far enough in the GCSS-Army process that we can get after these challenges with some serious effort put into figuring out a good plan to flush out some different courses of action to present to leadership.”
    Having these COAs will allow commanders to make timely informed decisions.
    “Great things have been accomplished during the drill. We brought in strategic partners from the GCSS-Army project manager, Logistics Support Activity, Army Materiel Command and logisticians from surrounding units in the U.S. Army Central area of operations,” said Dewey.
    Logisticians understand fully the implications that result from the recommendations they provide to the command and the Soldier is always the focus of any drill or exercise.
    “We have Soldiers, Department of the Army Civilians and contractors in dark, distant and dangerous places within proximity of some whose ideology isn’t the same as their government, and the sacrifices we make in support of our partnered nations,” said Bell. “However, we still echo the words ‘1st Team’ and ‘Army Strong’ with pride.”
