EstablishAerial and Sea Ports of Debarkation and Inland Motor and RailOperations. As Directed Provide Common User TransportationSupport Services Throughout the Theater of Operations.Our mission statement.We are constantly involved in contingencies,exercises, and force projection operations throughout theworld.

9 Wartime / Contingency Operation Responsibilities in both MTWs Mobilize and Deploy to establish theater level Transportation SystemsDevelop and Execute theater leveltransportation plans, policies, and proceduresConduct Reception, Staging, and Onward Movement Operations for Army, Joint, and/or Combined ForcesPlan and Execute theater level transportation operationsThe TRANSCOM mission is broken down into these primary areas of responsibility. I’ll highlight four of them:Our Reception, Staging, and Onward Movement challenge is to ensure that the incremental buildup of combat power proceeds according to the CINC’s plan.Command and Control of our WARTRACE units requires that we provide METL guidance, mission statements, and technical expertise to these units, through day-to-day contact, conferences, and exercises. We have 5 TC Groups WARTRACED to this Command:- 32d GP, Tampa FL th GP, Butler, PA- 336th GP, Sheridan, IL th GP, Mobile, AL- 7th GP an AC Gp located at FT. Eustis, VATransportation Planning for both MTWs consumes a large portion of our resources. In order to accomplish our mission, we have established Liaison Officer positions with G-4, 3rd Army and G-4, 8th Army. The Liaison Officers maintain continuity, exchange information, and coordinate training missions with their respective Commands.As the EAC Theater Transportation Operators we are responsible for meeting all rail, coastal & inland waterway, and highway movement requirements via our subordinate units.Command and Control EAC transportation unitsOperate Theater common user seaport terminals, coastal & inland waterway MSRs, JLOTS sites, rail terminals and line haul truck ops

Here is a representation of past and present exercises and contingencies.Last year we completed a successful “TURBO PATRIOT” JLOTS exercise, that was conducted at Camp Pendleton, CA.This year we completed “TURBO CADS”, a C/JLOTS exercise that was conducted in June in the Republic of Korea. This was a combine and joint exercise and included AC/RC soldiers, sailors, and ROK Forces. The purpose of the exercise was to replicate Joint delivery of cargo over a bare beach and through a degraded port.Our next major exercise is Native Atlas ’02, a JLOTS exercise at Camp Pendleton, CA in Apr/May of Our mission will be to download 3d ID equipment from ships, move it over the beach and through a small ports, and then onward to the National Training Center.Lucky Sentinel(Annual)Major Exercise CINC Participants # IPRs FTS Req’t TPU Req’tTurbo Patriot (’01) USTRANSCOM 2,000+ (Joint)Lucky Sentinel (’02) CENTCOM ,000+ (Joint/Comb)Turbo CADS (’02) PACOM ,000+ (Joint//Comb)Bright Star (“02/03) CENTCOM ,000+ (Joint/Comb)

17 JLOTS DefinitionLOTS is the process of discharging cargo from vessels anchored offshore or in-the-stream, transporting it to shore or pier and marshalling it for onward movement.JLOTS occurs when Army and Navy units conduct LOTS operations together under a Joint Force Commander.
18 Joint Chiefs of Staff JLOTS Exercise Sponsorship Message To ensure JLOTS as a strategic capability, it must be realistically exercised each year, and the CINC’s, Services, and JLOTS community must work together to maximize training and maintain operational excellence.It is essential that programmed funds are available to ensure accomplishment of the JLOTS training objectives.It is critical that JLOTS is exercised regularly to maintain operational excellence in this important warfighting area.* Reference CJCS Message dated Z JAN 01
