19 AOR Soil Transiting EUCOM June 2007 More recent soil contamination from Al Udeid.EUCOM notifies DOD Executive Agent of all occurrences. USTRANSCOM notifies CBP and USDA of flight’s destination and itinerary.We need to reduce soil contamination from the AOR to CONUS and OCONUS locations. The picture indicates plastic on the floor of the aircraft to contain soil, but the solution would be to clean prior to loading on aircraft. But more importantly, it says we know the cargo is dirty and we’re taking it anyway.
