Joint Logistics Over the Shore
Pfc. Emmanuel Lopez, a watercraft operator assigned to the 331st Transportation Company, 10th Transportation Battalion, 7th Sustainment Brigade, unties his mike boat from the main causeway during a Joint Logistics Over the Shore exercise at Fort Story, Aug. 21. This is my first Joint Logistics Over the Shore exercise and I am definitely learning a lot, said Lopez. This is a great chance for us to partner with the Navy and learn how to perform our mission in a joint environment. The JLOTS exercises are performed around the world in joint and coalition environments. Operations involve loading and unloading of ships without the benefit of deep draft-capable, fixed port facilities.
