The purpose of this study is to examine the role of the LOGCAP Logistics Support Unit (LSU) in Southwest Asia during the early stages of Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom. The study provides a summary of the LSU makeup, their roles, training and their processes and procedures. The study goes on to analyze the impact of the training and processes and procedures on the mission of the LSU and changes that were made during their deployment. Evidence is provided to demonstrate the difficulties the LSU encountered as a result of role confusion and inadequate training. The empirical data presented shows a correlation between role confusion and inadequate training as the cause of extended timelines and numerous changes to efforts undertaken to meet U.S. Military needs. The research then outlines the improvements that were attempted as well as the results of their implementation. In conclusion, the study provides conclusions based upon the analysis and presents three recommendations for improving the LSU to ensure the next deployment of the LSU to large-scale contingency leverages the lessons learned from this experience. Review and analysis of empirical data gathered from December 2002 through May 2003, interviews with LSU members, and General Accounting Office (GAO) audit reports provided the basis for this study
