The USAMMA provides Class VIII (medical materiel) logistics for several Army and Office of The Surgeon General (OTSG) readiness programs. These programs include the acquisition, storage, distribution and transfer of prepositioned stocks located ashore and afloat, as well as medical chemical defense packages and short shelf life pharmaceuticals and other materiel. As part of the Force Projection strategy, these programs contribute to the Army's ability to rapidly deploy decisive power worldwide. Both the Army and the subordinate OTSG have established specific programs to support contingency operations. The programs are designed to work together to meet the needs of deploying units.

Army Prepositioned Stock (APS): 

  • Brigade/Unit Sets
  • Operational Projects
  • War Reserve Sustainment
