Logistics Specialist Reviews

What is it like working as a Logistics Specialist at U.S. Army?
Logistics Specialist in Washington:
"Logistics Management."
Pros: The organization itself and the "will get it done" attitudes. Failure is not an option.
Cons: The rank structure. Waiting on "open slots" to get promoted no matter what your knowledge is base on. The wait is long and outdrawn, it breaks down the morale because you work so hard to advance.
