Class VI is not just liquor, or maybe I just missed this part of the new spouse briefing.

While I was happily thrashing at finding sources for a Wikipedia article, Vogon said "If Class VI is liquor, what are the other classes?". I didn't have an answer, so I turned to the oracle of Google and inhaled some poisonous vapors sacrificed small animals hit the Enter key.

From the U.S. Army Field Manual 4-0 Combat Service Support, I present:

U.S. Armed Forces Classes of Supply

Class I - Subsistence (food), gratuitous (free) health and comfort items.

Class II - Clothing, individual equipment, tentage, organizational tool sets and kits, hand tools, unclassified maps, administrative and housekeeping supplies and equipment.

Class III - Petroleum, Oil and Lubricants (POL) (package and bulk): Petroleum, fuels, lubricants, hydraulic and insulating oils, preservatives, liquids and gases, bulk chemical products, coolants, deicer and antifreeze compounds, components, and additives of petroleum and chemical products, and coal.

Class IV - Construction materials, including installed equipment and all fortification and barrier materials.

Class V - Ammunition of all types, bombs, explosives, mines, fuzes, detonators, pyrotechnics, missiles, rockets, propellants, and associated items.

Class VI - Personal demand items (such as health and hygiene products, soaps and toothpaste, writing material, snack food, beverages, cigarettes, batteries, alcohol, and cameras—nonmilitary sales items).

Class VII - Major end items such as launchers, tanks, mobile machine shops, and vehicles.

Class VIII - Medical materiel (equipment and consummables) including repair parts peculiar to medical equipment. ( Class VIIIa – Medical consummable supplies not including blood & blood products; Class VIIIb – Blood & blood components (whole blood, platelets, plasma, packed red cells, etc).

Class X - Material to support nonmilitary programs such as agriculture and economic development (not included in Classes I through IX).
