Warfighters & Maintainers: Share Your Readiness Tips and Ideas

PS Magazine logo
Now that PS Magazine is a fully-online platform, it’s easier than ever to share your maintenance and supply tips and ideas with us. In turn, we can share these tips and ideas to a wider audience by turning them into PS Magazine articles.

You may not be aware, but in addition to submissions from the field, PS Magazine generates articles from sources such as other authorized Army websites, newsletters, temporary duty trips or TDYs, online publications, and life cycle management command (LCMC) requests. Over the years, PS writers have regularly visited units to talk to warfighters about their vehicles, equipment and supply processes. These discussions lead to a large number of PS Magazine articles. But with Covid-19 currently limiting travel, you don’t have to wait for a visit from PS Magazine to give your input. You can send in your maintenance, logistics and supply management tips and ideas now.

Do you have a maintenance or supply tip, a better way to accomplish a task, a newly created a tool or a process that’s helpful in performing maintenance and supply duties? If so, we want to hear about it.

Be aware that all ideas must be reviewed by the appropriate LCMC, such as the Aviation and Missile Command, the Tank-Automotive & Armaments Command or Communications-Electronics Command, for technical relevance and accuracy. Sometimes ideas submitted from the field aren’t supported by an LCMC. In these cases, PS will always provide an explanation for why the tip, idea or tool cannot be adopted.

So put on your thinking caps and send in your helpful maintenance and logistics ideas so we can share those that truly enhance individual, unit and fleet readiness Army-wide. With your help, PS Magazine will continue to be the Army’s premier source for readiness information.
Here's a poster version of this article, courtesy of our partners at the US Army Combat Readiness Center. Consider printing it, hanging it in the unit's motor pool and day room or passing it out at the next maintenance meeting.
