    Yes, but what year, theater, and campaign as these variables change the TO&E.

    I had no idea that there was a wide variation. Say '45, Pacific, Iwo. This should include most lessons learned.

    Well, if no one else knows.....I'm not sure, but something like Transport, ordanance, and equipment? I know how it's used in context, but haven't gotten an exact definition.
