AMC Historical Office

The mission of the U.S. Army Materiel Command's Historical Office is to develop policy and procedures for the conduct of the AMC Historical Program. The office represents AMC at the Army level and provides guidance for AMC's subordinate command and activity historians. The Historical Office acquires and preserves the history of the command by ensuring that documents, oral interviews, visual images and other source materials are safeguarded in the office's historical research collection.

The AMC Historical Office advances knowledge through research to provide historical perspectives and support to decision making, military problem solving and materiel research and development. The office accomplishes this by disseminating historical materials through printed, electronic and multimedia formats that focus on historical themes and events.
