The 308th Supply and Service Battalion was consolidated two of its Class III supply points -- the consolidation merged the Kassel supply point with the Bad Hersfeld supply point. The move was done to provide better service to customer units by taking advantage of Bad Hersfeld's better distribution and storage facilities.

The Bad Hersfeld Class III Supply Point serves some 75 units within an area bounded by Kassel in the north and Darmstadt in the south. NCOIC is S/Sgt Leonard H. Derrick. He has a staff of six personnel who work at the supply point.
