When I was a student here in 1936, there was very little consideration given to the subject of logistics. At that time we in the Navy had, as we have now, a fine supply corps. Our supply officers were men who had a good knowledge of how to get things, when to get them, and how to distribute them, but the average line officer took very little active part in such matters and in fact there was a tendency to avoid them if possible.
