Online registration is open until 5 p.m. Eastern March 11. On-site registration, as seats are available, begins at 6:30 a.m. March 13.

Hamilton, who enlisted in the Army and later attended Officer Candidate School, took command of Materiel Command last March. He most recently was the deputy Army chief of staff for logistics, G-4. He also has served as Materiel Command’s deputy chief of staff for operations, G-3; commander of the 8th Theater Sustainment Command; and chief logistics officer for U.S. Forces Korea.

He served multiple tours in Afghanistan.

At Materiel Command, Hamilton leads an organization responsible for delivering precision sustainment and materiel readiness to an expeditionary global force. This mission aligns directly with the Army’s focus on delivering ready combat formations, Hamilton said in recent article in ARMY magazine, AUSA’s flagship publication.

“As [Materiel Command] transforms the sustainment warfighting function, it bears repeating: Sustainment is about warfighting, period,” Hamilton writes. “Future sustainment operations must focus on predictive logistics capabilities and align with warfighting functions to support requirements across the breadth of the battle space—from the foxhole to the joint strategic support area—to ensure freedom of action, extended operational reach and prolonged endurance.”
