The Class II Support Division (CIISD), in LOGCOM’s Supply Chain Management Center provides tailored logistics and sustainment support to Marine Corps and Joint customers in support of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Defense (CBRND), Expeditionary Fire Support (EFS) equipment and other Class II material. Maj. Gen. Keith D. Reventlow, commanding general of Marine Corps Logistics Command, toured the Class II facility in Albany, Ga. on 30 Jan., getting the chance to see first-hand how the CIISD bolsters logistics operations and creates cost savings for their customers.

Class II items are clothing and equipment for the individual, tentage, organizational tool sets and kits, hand tools, and administrative and housekeeping supplies and equipment. During the tour, Robert A. Wilson, director of the CIISD, discussed how the division leverages the supply chain, auditable processes, and enterprise systems to generate operational readiness for the Fleet Marine Force, Joint Services, Defense Agencies, and Partnering Nations.

The CIISD is organized into four elements: Field Service Teams (FST), Logistics Support Services (LSS), Defense Accountability, Reutilization and Demilitarization (DARD), and Radiological Controls (RADCON).

The FSTs are responsible for executing sustainment and services of Marine Corps-fielded CBRND systems and Class II equipment. Co-located with the Operating Forces, the teams offer non-destructive surveillance, maintenance, repair, fielding, and New Equipment Training (NET) services.

LSS provides sustainment support to the Marine Corps and Joint Forces with testing services for production lot acceptance, shelf-life extension, and engineering evaluations on individual protective equipment. LSS also provides environmentally Controlled Storage and Care of Supplies in Storage (COSIS) for select CBRND assets and the operation of an ESAPI plate inspection program.

DARD is the centralized disposition authorization and disposal point for CBRND material for all DoD components. They also dispose of products, not limited to Class II, through a broad range of organic demilitarization capabilities, including industrial shredding, cutting, and incineration. The evaluation process of incoming items includes identifying viable assets for reutilization as combat or training stock, creating significant savings for the service. In fiscal year 23, the CBRND equipment reutilization program realized a cost savings of $13.6M for the Marine Corps, its joint partners and other government agencies.  

RADCON provides service-level oversight of radioactive commodities in the Marine Corps. This includes licensing oversight, training services, and raising awareness of radiological hazards among Marine Corps stakeholders. The Radiation Safety Officer is also responsible for accounting for the service-wide inventory of radioactive materials.

The value of CIISD service offerings is derived from their responsiveness and relentless focus on customer support. They specialize in providing tailored logistics solutions that are agile and cost effective. Services are enabled by the geographical disbursement of FST’s so they can interface directly with the units across the globe to provide direct support for their sustainment requirements. Wilson says “CIISD recognizes that each customer has unique requirements, and we must tailor our response to address their specific needs to be effective support providers.” ­­
