Publications that aid in the administration of US Army supply programs range
from the policy setting and rules contained in US Army regulations through a long list of
printed matter that embraces specific directions and explanations concerning operations
and maintenance through the tables that outline the equipment and supplies of specified
units and the catalogs that itemize available items. References and directives published
by the DOD and the US Army on supply subjects offer all the help necessary for an
accurate and efficient supply program. However, supply personnel will find these
publications useful only if they know what the publications are and how to locate
information in them.
