Searching for Logistics Quotations?
Awhile back I posted a blog entitled “Quotable Logistics Quotes.” In it, I shared a number of well-known logistics-related quotations, many of which were available in a downloadable PDF format two volume book set entitled “Quotes for the Air Force Logistician Box Set” on the Air Force Logistics Management Agency (AFLMA) publications web site. This Air Force resource contained an extensive compendium of helpful, topical and often humorous logistics-related quotations. After 37 years of service to the Air Force and DoD community, however, the mission of the AFLMA was inactivated effective 1 October 2012.
Although out of print, because so many of the quotes are both timeless and are of interest to our workforce, we have posted an archived copy of the 2006 version of “Quotes for the Air Force Logistician” (Volumes 1 & 2) on our DAU Life Cycle Logistics Community of Practice (LOG CoP). Downloadable archived copies are also available on the Air University website at: “Quotations for the Air Force Logistician (Volume 1)” and “Quotations for the Air Force Logistician (Volume 2)”.
For those searching for other AFLMA publications and reports, including archived copies of past articles from AFLMA’s “Air Force Journal of Logistics” magazine, I would recommend searching either the Air War College Gateway to the Internet website, the Air University Library, or the DTIC website.
