This thesis deals with concepts of strategy and logistics in the military and business fields. In particular, it is concerned with the relationships between military strategy and logistics. It recommends a logistics strategy for the defense of the Republic of Korea. Traditionally, the logistics has been treated as secondary. But, in current situations, attention must be placed on logistics. Four steps are needed by the ROK military forces in the long-term point of view. First, the commanders or planners of the ROK military forces should understand the concepts and true meanings of logistics for defense policy. Second, the ROK military forces should have an organization which can deal with the logistics support of the U.S. or allied countries in case of the threats of hostilities by the North Korea. Third, life-cycle costing methods should be considered as an acquisition strategy. Fourth, the weapons procurement process needs some change, especially in the middleman agencies.
