My particular position, serving as the mentor to the Zone 202 RHQ PBO, was exceptional because it was the first time anyone in that position had been partnered with his own mentor.
In these instances, receipt documents (MoI Form 9, Materiel Issue Order) were never submitted to the RHQ, leaving the PBO unable to maintain proper accountability.
The RHQ logistics directorate appeared to be not very forward thinking.
Afghan logisticians and their coalition mentors were invited to attend monthly logistics conferences held at the RHQ. The conference was not only a forum to hold PHQs accountable for dueouts; it was also an excellent opportunity to conduct logistics training and allow the RHQ to address all PHQs simultaneously.
Once reliable quantities were reported to the RHQ, the next logical step was to redistribute excess within the RHQ.
By cooperating with our Afghan counterparts, we developed an AUP logistics status worksheet that monitored the consumption of classes I (subsistence), II (clothing and individual equipment), III (petroleum, oils, and lubricants), V (ammunition), and VII (major end items) to minimize emergency resupply and encourage forward planning within the RHQ.
