Although AFSBn-Carson was only established as a permanent battalion in accordance with Permanent Order 198-01 on 4 October 2009, the predecessors and history can be traced back to the 1940s. In the 1940s, the Army hired technical experts termed Civilian Master Mechanics through the Army’s Technical Services with the purpose of conducting hardware and equipment repairs. In the 1950s, the role of the Civilian Master Mechanics expanded to include teaching, advising and supply assistance, much like the Logistics Assistance Representatives (LAR) of today. With this expanded requirement, they were also renamed as Mechanical or Equipment Advisors.
With the activation of Army Materiel Command (AMC) in 1962, the advisors were aligned under the Technical Service Program and organized under Customer Assistance Offices (CAO) headed by Colonels located at worldwide locations in most areas of strategic interest. In the 1970s, the roles and missions of the CAO expanded to include supply support, management of modification work orders and select item management. With this expansion, they were also redesignated as Logistics Assistance Offices (LAO).
The Army began aligning LAOs with maneuver divisions in the 1980s to support projected tactical requirements in a large scale ground campaign with the primary role of providing divisional units reach back capability to the Army’s large industrial complex. The term LAO was used to indicate LARs working in a garrison environment while the term Logistics Support Element (LSE) was adopted to denote an LAO deployed with LARS and AMC civilian contractors operating on the battlefield. This structure would remain virtually unchanged over the next decade of providing support to the Warfighter.
Following Operation Desert Storm in 1991, the Department of the Army consolidated all Army war reserve stocks, including former theater reserves, into five regional materiel stockpiles; CONUS, Europe, Pacific, Southwest Asia, and Afloat. A new subordinate organization, the Army War Reserve Support Command (later redesignated the Army Field Support Command), was created in October 1996 to command and control all APS sets worldwide. The Department of the Army established the Army War Reserve Support Command (AWRSPTCMD) to serve as the Army's centralized executing agent for all Army Prepositioned Stocks (APS). The Command officially stood up on November 25, 1996. The AWRSPTCMD began organizing and implementing the Army prepositioned stocks mission through its worldwide field organizational network. The AWRSPTCMD transitioned to the Field Support Command (FSC) on 31 March 2000. The US Army Field Support Command (FSC), headquarters located at Rock Island, Illinois, was a one-star command that reported to the Commander, Operations Support Command. Within FSC, there were six subordinate organizations -- AMC-CONUS, AMC Forward-Europe, AMC Forward-Far East, and AMC Forward-Southwest Asia plus AMC Combat Equipment Group-Europe (AMC CEG-E)and AMC Combat Equipment Group-Afloat (AMC CEG-A), each headed by a command-designated Colonel, who reports directly to the Commander, Field Support Command.
During Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, FSC has continued to mature into its role as the logistics integrator for all theaters. The growth was most obvious in Southwest Asia as the brigades headquartered at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait and Balad, Iraq steadily continued to expand in mission, size, and execution. On 1 October 2004, four AMC forward units were redesignated as Army Field Support Brigades (AFSB); this included AFSB-SWA (now 401st AFSB), Iraq (now 402d AFSB in Kuwait), Europe (now 405th AFSB), and Far East (now 403d AFSB). In addition, in March 2005, AFSBs CONUS East and CONUS West were formed out of the former AMC-CONUS to provide support to forces stationed in within the US. CONUS East (now 406th AFSB) established operations at Ft Bragg, NC while CONUS West (now 407th AFSB) set up at Ft. Hood.
With the expanding role for FSC, AMC consolidated command and control by assigning the LAOs in CONUS to the AFSB in their respective areas of operation. At the same time FSC units supporting the development and deployment of Stryker units from Ft. Lewis transformed into AFSB Stryker, later redesignated AFSB Pacific (now 404th AFSB). Official names changes caught up with rapid transformation in August 2005. By the end of FY 2005 AFSC had seven AFSBs providing support to forces in the field. Only AFSB CONUS East and West were completely new - the other five Brigades were simply transformations from the AMC Forward or LSE configuration.
One of the most significant challenges facing FSC was the maintenance and accountability of Left Behind Equipment (LBE) and force generation requirements to meet demands of the theater Combatant Commander. To leverage existing CONUS based structures and synchronize other AMC entities in support of the growing LBE and force generation missions, AMC redesignated the LAOs as provisional battalions. On 7 June 2006, the colors of the newly designated battalions were uncased as were the official colors of the redesignated 407th AFSB (formerly AFSB CONUS-West). As the first provisional Army Field Support Battalion activated, the LAO at Fort Carson received the designation 1/407th AFSB and picked up the tag line “Always First”.
On 1 October, 2006 The US Army Sustainment Command (ASC) activated and the US Army Field Support Command was inactivated. More than a name change; the unit transformed and gained missions to become the CONUS Theater Support Command while also maintaining the seven globally deployed and CONUS based Army Field Support Brigades.
On 1 June 2008, 1/407th AFSB was redesignated as AFSBn-Carson (Provisional). The provisional designation was changed on 4 October 2009 with the establishment of the AFSBns as permanent in accordance with permanent order 198-01. AFSBn-Carson’s structure, through Fiscal Year 2012 (FY12), includes Brigade Logistics Support Teams (BLST) direct support to each of the four Brigade Combat Teams (BCTs) of the 4th Infantry Division, a BLST designated for the 39th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Ft. Sill, Oklahoma) and the Logistics Support Team (LST), Ft. Sill, Oklahoma.
Fiscal Year 2013 (FY13) brings change to AFSBn-Carson with the addition of a fifth BLST, based at Fort Carson, in direct support of the Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB), 4ID. This BLST, authorized on the FY13 TDA with an effective date of 04 October, 2012, incorporates the traditional BLST Chief and LMS structure, with additional skilled Army Aviation and Missile Lifecycle Management Command (AMCOM) LARs specific to the unique needs of the varying airframes and aviation specific systems found across today’s modular CAB. AFSBn-Carson officially established the CAB BLST on 04 January 2013. With the addition of the CAB BLST, AFSBn-Carson’s authorized structure now includes five BLSTs in direct support of 4th Infantry Division brigades, one BLST in direct support of 39th IBCT and the LST at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma.

The Fort Carson AOAP lab was established in 1978, and is operated under the government-owned, contractor-operated (GOCO) concept. The current contractor is MartinFederal. The AOAP is a DOD-wide effort to detect impending equipment component failures, improve operational readiness, promote safety and conserve lubricating oils. All Army aviation equipment and combat vehicles are currently enrolled in the program, as well as various support equipment. The Fort Carson lab supports an 11-state area of active duty, National Guard and Reserve components from Army, Air Force and Marine Corps activities. The analysis process currently includes determination of viscosity, acid number/base number, wearmetal content by optical spectroscopy, flash point analysis, particle count, ferrography, infrared analysis by FTIR, determination of water content, and various other tests.
