FORT SHAFTER — Lt. Gen. Aundre F. Piggee, deputy chief of staff, G-4 (Army Logistics), is visiting major sustainment commands as part of the Army’s continued efforts to increase readiness in the Pacific.

During visits with key leaders at U.S. Army-Pacific, the 8th Theater Sustainment Command, the 25th Infantry Division and the 25th Sustainment Brigade, he is seeing firsthand sustainment in action and efforts to bring today’s technology to the field.

The focus of his discussions centered on Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Mark A. Milley’s No. 1 priority: readiness.

Accompanying the general was the G-4’s Sgt. Maj. Edward A. Bell.

They had an opportunity to visit the 325th Brigade Support Battalion’s Supply Support Activity to see how the unit is successfully using the Army’s newest logistics information system, the Global Combat Support System-Army.

They also saw how the unit is preparing for a conversion to the common Authorized Stockage List, which will improve how the Army manages repair parts.

The Pacific trip follows similar visits by Piggee to Europe and other parts of the world to ensure sustainers are ready for future contingencies.
