7-47: Resupply Methods

Previous: 7-44: Resupply Procedures

7-47. As directed by the commander or executive officer, the first sergeant establishes the Infantry company’s resupply point using the service station method or the tailgate method or in-position method. He briefs each LOGPAC driver on which method or methods to use. When the resupply point is ready, the first sergeant informs the commander, who in turn directs each platoon or element to conduct resupply based on the tactical situation. The platoon sergeant can resupply the squads the same way the first sergeant resupplies
the platoons.
