Commemorative Print

Entitled “Centuries of Sustaining Freedom,” this inaugural U.S. Army Sustainment Print depicts Sustainment professionals and equipment predating World War I to 2017 from Quartermaster, Adjutant General, Finance, Medical, Ordnance, Transportation, and Logistics. It also honors the significant contributions of our Women’s Army Corps and its special place within our history and legacy. Above all, this print is a tribute to Sustainment Warriors supporting the Warfighter at the tip of the spear for more than a century, “Sustaining Freedom.” More information at www.leemwr.com/sustainmentprint.
