Hello everybody, I was wondering if someone could explain to me the relationship between the company quartermaster sergeants, regimental quartermaster sergeants etc. with the larger Quartermaster Department. Obviously a quartermaster sergeant is going to be organic to the unit he's a part of but did he ultimately answer to the Quartermaster Dept. or have some kind of relationship with them? Clearly he was fulfilling the quartermaster role in the unit he was organic to but did he communicate or anything with the Quartermaster Dept. in Washington D.C.? Many thanks to whoever clears this up for me.
