No unit was more critical to the buildup and support of
American forces in Vietnam
than the 1st Logistical Command.
Prior to 1965, the U.S. Army in Vietnam was supplied by the Army's Pacific Command through the small U.S. Army Support Group, Vietnam, which served under the 9th Logistical Command in
Okinawa. With the deployment of division-sized units, it quickly became apparent that the logistical effort required greater manpower and organization.
As a result, the 1st Logistical Command, which had first been activated during the Korean War, was deployed from Fort Hood, Texas, and arrived in Saigon on April 1, 1965.
