      Hello NARA,


      Looking for help trying to find records pertaining to a Logistical Command exercise called LOGEX63. Was wondering were the reports would be located, many of the Logistical Command units that year were from the fifth army area. Need help determining records and after action reports.

          Dear Mr. Schneider,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter) (Record Group 338) but were unable to locate a report for LOGEX 63 in the files of the Fifth Army and the 4th Logistical Command for 1963.


          According to USCONARC Circular No. 3.50-57 dated 10 September 1962, LOGEX 63 was to be conducted at Fort Lee, Virginia, from 28 April to 11 May 1963 in two consecutive phases. The first phase, called in the USCONARC circular the Unit Training Phase and conducted from 28 April to 4 May, was for selected U.S. Army Reserve units and selected Reserve and Active Army officers. The second phase, called the Individual Training Phase, was for participating service schools and was conducted from 5 May to 11 May 1963. A copy of the report for the second part is available at http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a638752.pdf.


          A copy of the entire Exercise may be available via the Research Library at the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center. 


          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!

            Dear Mr. Schneider,


            While we were searching for records pertaining to the 84th Infantry Division (Training), we located a series titled Training Operations Files, 1954 - 1963 in RG 338 that includes Exercises such as LOGEX 63 [Box 5, Loc: B190/1/5/7]. If you are interested in access to or copies of the 9 volumes, please contact the National Archives in College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.
