Scott AFB, Illinois Vol. 15, No. 6 April 2015 By Capt. Robert Mulac, USNRThe Department of Defense’s response to multiple, simultaneous crises around the world is quickly becoming the norm. To test its ability to meet the challenges in such contingencies, U.S. Transportation Command held Turbo Challenge 2015. TC 15 shared scenarios with three other combatant command exercises, U.S. European Command’s Austere Challenge, U.S. Strategic Command’s Global Lightning and U.S. Africa Command’s Judicious Response. All challenged USTRANSCOM’s ability to balance global priorities to sustain U.S. forces, support the international community, and evacuate Americans, even when challenged by simulated port closures, civil unrest, protests and major equipment failure. From March 19 through March 25, USTRANSCOM proved its 24-hour operations successful. The seamless integration command with its components, including its reserve component, was key to success, according to Air Force Maj. Gen. Wayne Scha USTRANSCOM J-3 Director of Operations and Planning. “The level of e ort sustained during both the Crisis Action Planning and Post-Exercise phases of Turbo Challenge 2015 could not have been accomplished without with unrivaled contributions of our team mates from the Joint Transportation Reserve Unit,” said Scha “As one of our ve components, and our only component composed entirely of reserve service members, Scha continued, “the JTRU enabled USTRANCOM to honor our promise to our exercise war ghters: Together, We Deliver.” The JTRU had 46 members supporting the command’s tier one, Joint Chiefs of Sta -directed exercise. Air Force Reserve Maj. Gen. Michael D. Kim, JTRU commander shared Scha ’ observation. “Seamlessly integrating the JTRU’s highly skilled Reservists into the exercise supports the TRANSCOM mission and guarantees success,” he said. “This is exactly why the JTRU exists, to be command’s force-multiplier on a daily basis and especially when one or multiple contingencies stresses the abilities of TRANSCOM’s total force team.” U.S. Navy Reservists, left to right, Lt. Andrew Martin, Pe y O cer 1st Class Joshua Smith and Lt. Ryan Denton were among the many reservists, active duty and civilian workers who participated in Turbo Challenge 15. The three acted as Military Sealift Command Detachment, Sco Air Force Base, liaisons for USTRANSCOM during the exercise.

Photo by Bob Fehringer, TCPATANDEM gets upgrade release By USTRANSCOM Change Management After ve years of continuous use at USTRANSCOM, TANDEM, short for Training and Development Management, is a Success Factors Learning Management System that is ge ing ready for a much needed face-lift this spring. “TANDEM allows USTRANSCOM the ability to administer, document, track, report, and evaluate training and education online and under one common system,” said Ray Forcier, J1-C, senior education and training analyst. TANDEM was implemented in February 2010, and has served the command well; but has been considered an “end-of-life” system since December 2012. “We were no longer receiving the support we needed from SuccessFactors to maintain proper system functionality, this is why we experienced problems with TANDEM,” said Forcier. (i.e., personnel being granted credit for training they didn’t complete). Recently the command awarded a new contract to upgrade TANDEM with an expected April 15 delivery date. Some of the enhancements will include an updated user dashboard with easy links; ability for users to personalize their dashboard; an easy to read to-do list; easier access to learning; and the ability to create and assign online surveys. Recently TCJ6 and TCJ1 led a team of cross-directorate administrators in con guring and testing our TANDEM development site. On-site training will be provided to directorate training coordinators March 16-20, and educating the workforce will begin shortly thereafter. The new version of TANDEM is expected to provide much easier navigation and ultimately reduce customer frustration. “We’re really excited about the enhanced capabilities this new and improved TANDEM will provide this command,” said Forcier.


By Lisa Caldwell, TCPAThe Joint Exercises Branch helps U.S. Transportation Command preserve readiness capability the command’s strategy focus area one through its responsibilities as part of the Joint Training and Exercises Division in the Operations and Plans Directorate (TCJ3). “My branch’s purpose is to support readiness by enabling the command to realistically exercise and assess the policies and processes which are the foundation of USTRANSCOM’s dynamic, multi-dimensional global mission sets,” said branch chief Army Lt. Col. Jonathan Cox. Cox said his 13-member military and contractor team assists about 140 DoD joint exercises annually by managing USTRANSCOM’s engagement in the supported combatant commands’ Joint Exercise Programs. Concurrently, they plan, execute and assess 10 of 18 USTRANSCOM-sponsored JEP events each year: seven Turbo Activation drills, an organic surge eet exercise for Military Sealift Command and the Maritime Administration; Ultimate Caduceus, the number one patient movement eld training exercise; Ultimate Reach, a live y strategic airdrop exercise for Air Mobility Command; and Turbo Challenge – USTRANSCOM’s tier one ba le sta command post exercise which involves all the directorates, the components, the Joint Transportation Reserve Unit and the Joint Enabling Capabilities Command, and which always links to another COCOM’s tier-one exercise. According to Cox, his team uses the Joint Event Life Cycle to guide exercise planning, starting 12 to 18 months prior to execution. Cox’s team receives directorate training requirements at the annual Joint Training and Exercises Conference, then uses a concept development event to identify which ones to include in the exercise. During initial planning, those needs are crafted into storylines to feed into the linked COCOM exercise and are re ned during midterm and nal planning. The team also has a representative at each COCOM annual training and exercise conference. “This allows us to maintain situational awareness of other COCOM JEP events and look for ways to integrate training requirements of our own ba le sta and joint enablers -such as the JECC and the Joint Task Force-Port Opening -into their exercises,” said Cox. Turbo Challenge 15 demonstrated the comprehensive e orts of the Joint Exercises Branch. “Turbo Challenge 15 is the rst time four combatant commands partnered in an exercise, giving us an outstanding opportunity to provide agile, rstclass support to U.S. European Command, U.S. Africa Command and U.S. Strategic Command,” said Sco Hill, chief, Joint Training and Exercises Division. “I’m very proud of the joint exercises team for producing such a unique TC 15 scenario.” TC 15 emphasized Knowledge Management, de ned on the command KM SharePoint site as “USTRANSCOM’s deliberate approach to develop, capture, and maintain shared understanding to enable e ective decision support and sta processes,” accomplished by three major components: people, processes and tools. According to Cox, to address a gap identi ed from TC 14, participants in TC 15 were evaluated on their e ective use of KM to support operational decisions and the ba le rhythm. During the recent TC 15 academics session at Sco Air Force Base, Marine Corps Lt. Col. Brian Duplessis of the Joint Sta J-7 Deployable Training Team discussed using boards, bureaus, centers, cells and working groups to “break down silos of excellence for successful sta integration.” He noted B2C2WGs use a seven-minute drill to de ne why one is needed to aid the commander’s decision process. Each directorate has a KM representative who can assist with the drill. Kudos to the Joint Exercises Branch for helping USTRANSCOM uphold its reputation as the transportation and enabling capability provider of choice.

4By Bob Fehringer, TCPAThe USTRANSCOM Foreign Policy Advisor (POLAD) Richard W. Nelson’s O ce invites all TRANSCOM teammates to an open house, April 13, from 8:30 to 10:30, on the occasion of the birthday of Thomas Je erson, our rst Secretary of State. If you have no idea what the POLAD is, or does, or why Je erson is so important to the o ce, that’s exactly why Nelson is hosting the event. The POLAD is USTRANSCOM’s principal advisor and focal point on foreign policy and international affairs. The o ce includes a senior POLAD, Nelson, who is a member of the U.S. Senior Foreign Service, and two deputy POLADs, Kwang Kim, Department of State and Andrew Corwin, an analyst on an exchange program with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, and executive support assistant Aracely “Nuez” Walker. The POLAD provides information and guidance to the commander on the foreign policy and diplomatic implications of USTRANSCOM’s global missions, to include the commander’s overseas engagements. According to Nelson, since he arrived at USTRANSCOM in August 2013, he has accompanied the commander on numerous overseas trips, where they meet with U.S. ambassadors, defense a achs, and country teams, and with ministers and chiefs of Defense, service chiefs, and frequently also with foreign ministers, prime ministers and presidents. “Two memorable trips to Afghanistan one with General Will Fraser and one with General Paul Selva focused on our operations there and in strategically important countries in the CENTCOM and EUCOM AORs,” Nelson said. “In November 2013, in Termez, Uzbekistan, General Fraser opened a new rail scanner at Friendship Bridge on the Afghan border to enhance the commercial viability of the Northern Distribution Network. “In July and August 2014, in Baku and Tbilisi, General Selva met with the presidents of Azerbaijan and Georgia,” Nelson continued, “both vital transportation links in the East-West corridor from China to Europe. Our military operations in these regions have had the e ect of supporting the development of key commercial infrastructure, which leads to economic and political stability. This exempli es how TRANSCOM’s actions are fully synchronized with broader U.S. government objectives.” The POLAD also provides foreign policy guidance to USTRANSCOM elements and component commands on emerging strategic, policy, and operational issues, and works to strengthen coordination between USTRANSCOM and the Department of State, and with other interagency o cials and U.S. missions abroad. In coordination with other command directorates, the POLAD assists the command section with DV visits to USTRANSCOM from the Department of State and other foreign a airs agencies, foreign missions in the U.S., and foreign dignitaries from overseas. “In recent months, we’ve been focused on many of the same issues that have been on the desks of our colleagues here at TRANSCOM: Ebola, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq,” Nelson said. “We help with diplomatic clearances; for example, some countries can be inconsistent in their permissions for over ight or ground transportation. Last year, we were deeply involved in the retrograde from Afghanistan and maintaining access on all branches of the Northern Distribution Network. I was also asked to visit the MV Cape Ray before it set sail to help with the foreign a airs aspects of its mission.” The POLAD o ce has had the lead on several visits of foreign ambassadors and government ministers to TRANSCOM headquarters. “We work very closely with the Enterprise Readiness Center and the Strategy and Governance Division in the J5 on outreach to foreign governments,” Nelson said. “We’ve hosted events for some of the foreign military logistics teams that have visited the command. We stand ready to assist anyone at USTRANSCOM on any issue. To paraphrase the TRANSCOM mo o: State and Defense – Together, We Deliver.” The USTRANSCOM Foreign Policy Advisor’s o ce consists of, left to right, Andrew Corwin, POLAD Richard W.

Lewis USTRANSCOM Command ChaplainAn interesting thought about the Easter season comes to mind as I write this month’s words of encouragement. Human e orts had previously failed to satisfy the penalty of sin (Romans 6:23) leading to the self-sacri cial act of GOD as revealed in John 3:16: “. . HE gave HIS only bego en SON, that whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life.” GOD’s gift of Christ demonstrates that GOD knew that those desirous of worshipping and serving HIM would need another avenue through which full reconciliation with HIM would be possible. GOD’s consideration of others’ needs in the gift of HIS SON is the avenue through which GOD facilitates the reconciliation of the GOD to human relationship. The consideration of others is the gold nugget of the Easter season. The Apostle Paul, as well, in Philippians 2:4 teaches us to consider not our own needs without considering the needs of others. In essence, we should not let our personal needs overshadow the needs of our collective National needs. Each day that we ght to maintain and spread the freedoms this Nation enjoys we display our understanding that we are ghting to ensure that others are able to enjoy similar freedoms. We must continue to sacri ce for the ultimate goal of universal freedom for humanity. While this goal will be di cult to accomplish since the nature of humans is to be inhuman to one another. Yet, we must diligently work to ensure the triumph of good over evil and the ushering in of freedom for all of humanity. I applaud our love for country. Let us continue to work to achieve its goals so that our children’s children will not have to live enslaved to an ideology that would snu out our GOD given freedoms. Chaplain Lewis


6History of TRANSCOM 1994-1996By Peg Nigra, TCRCGen. Robert L. “Skip” Rutherford took command of U.S. Transportation Command and Air Mobility Command on Oct. 18, 1994. USTRANSCOM was seven years old, had undergone a major reorganization, and was extremely busy as it supported contingency and humanitarian relief operations around the world. Improving the strategic mobility eet after the release of the Mobility Requirements Study Bo om-Up Review Update (MRS BURU) in December 1994 became the command’s number one priority. With the increased tempo of contingency and relief operations, Gen. Rutherford was concerned about the ability of the airlift and sealifts eet to support the war ghter. Modernization of the airlift eet and increased surge sealift requirements were vital to meet the two major theater wars scenario of the MRS BURU. With the C-141 rapidly reaching the end of its life cycle and modernization of the C-5 needed to improve its reliability, Gen. Rutherford stated that “We need to make every e ort to get the C-17 into the hands of our operational squadrons as quickly as possible.” Gen. Rutherford declared initial operational capability for the C-17 Globemaster III in January 1995. At that time there were 14 C-17s at Charleston Air Force Base, South Carolina. On the sealift side, the command supported the MRS BURU recommendation of continued procurement of Large Medium Speed Roll-On/ Roll-O (LMSR) ships. In addition, Gen. Rutherford worked to counter Navy a empts to cut Ready Reserve Force (RRF) operations and maintenance funds in scal years 1997-2001. Gen. Rutherford supported two other programs designed to increase the command’s surge sealift capacity and maintain a strong U.S. maritime presence. The Maritime Security Act (MSA), signed by President Bill Clinton in October 1996, authorized nancial assistance for 47 militarily useful U.S. ag commercial ships, which ensured availability of commercial shipping and a pool of quali ed merchant marines to crew RRF and other government vessels during crises and war. According to retired Army Lt. Gen. Edward Honor, president of the National Defense Transportation Association, “There would not be a Maritime Security Program today if General Rutherford hadn’t pushed the noodle and pushed it hard.” Gen. Rutherford also supported the Voluntary Intermodal Sealift Agreement (VISA), a program developed through a partnership between DOD, Department of Transportation, Maritime Administration, and U.S. ag commercial sealift industry that would establish the order in which government-owned merchant ships and private sector maritime assets would be called up in a war or national emergency. The command made a few organizational changes during Gen. Rutherford’s tenure. In 1996, the Quality O ce merged with the Manpower and Personnel Directorate, which was then renamed the Manpower, Personnel, and Quality Directorate. Also in 1996, the second phase of the Secretary of Defense-directed Operational Support Airlift (OSA) project was completed. This phase culminated in a new OSA scheduling mission for USTRANSCOM, the Joint Operational Support Airlift Center (JOSAC), which was responsible for scheduling all OSA assets for the Services. During Gen. Rutherford’s tour, USTRANSCOM’s operations tempo went into overdrive. The command supported relief operations in Africa, the former Soviet Union, South America, and Northern Iraq; the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia; and peacekeeping operations in Haiti and Bosnia-Herzegovina. In addition, acts of terrorism in Oklahoma and Saudi Arabia claimed nearly 200 American lives. In April 1995, USTRANSCOM handled the transportation of re ghters, Federal Bureau of Investigation teams, urban search and rescue teams, and search dogs from around the country to support the rescue and relief e orts following the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, where 169 people died. USTRANSCOM also handled the return of casualties from the bombing of the Khobar Towers housing area on King Abdul Aziz Air Base, Saudi Arabia, in June 1996. Gen. Rutherford laid the groundwork for a revitalized sealift program and a stronger airlift eet to support the war ghter and the security interests of the United States. Under his leadership, the command was able to support the National Command Authority in its direct employment of military forces, “whether with clenched st or open hand.” Gen. Rutherford died on July 4, 2013, of natural causes at San Antonio, Texas. He is interred at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery. Ask the HistorianBy Peg Nigra, TCRCWell, I didn’t advertise the contest in the March Transporter and no one sent in entries. So here are the answers to the rst two questions plus the extra credit. Question 1. What is the USTRANSCOM connection between Air Force General Duncan J. McNabb, USTRANSCOM Commander from 2008 to 2011, and Air Force General Duane Cassidy, USTRANSCOM Commander from 1987 to 1989? Continued on next page Gen. Robert L. “Skip” Rutherford


Answer: Major Duncan J. McNabb was Gen. Cassidy’s aide. Question 2. What do Air Force Gen. Walter Kross, USTRANSCOM commander from 1996 to 1998, Air Force Gen. John W. Handy, USTRANSCOM commander from 2001 to 2005, and Air Force Gen. Paul J. Selva, USTRANSCOM commander since 2014 have in common? And it’s not that they were USTRANSCOM commanders or that their last names have the same number of le ers, but that’s weird, right? Extra credit: as USTRANSCOM Commander, what does Gen. Selva not have in common with Generals Kross and Handy? Answer: Maj. Gen. Kross served as the director of Operations and Logistics (TCJ3/J4) from June 1990 to July 1991. Maj. Gen. Handy served as TCJ3/J4 from July 1993 to March 1995. And Brig. Gen. Selva served as the director of Operations (TCJ3) from November 2004 to January 2006 and as director of Operations and Plans from January 2006 to August 2006. Extra credit: Generals Kross and Handy were dual-ha ed as commander of Air Mobility Command and USTRANSCOM. Gen. Selva commanded each organization separately. The dual-hat arrangement ended in 2005 when Gen. Norton A. Schwar became the rst single-ha ed USTRANSCOM commander. This is a Call for Transporter Booster Club Nominations!

Anyone within the command may apply. Members will be selected based on a majority vote by all personnel in a endance. Facilities and Safety Corner T ornado season has started and we need to think about what to do to protect ourselves. We have done an analysis on the structural integrity of our buildings, researched FEMA guidance, and determined where the best locations are to seek refuge. Tornados are so unpredictable that no areas above ground are completely safe. If a tornado is reported, don’t hesitate to seek refuge. You will likely only have seconds to act. Go to the designated refuge areas in your buildings, get as close to the wall as possible, and lay down covering your head. In a tornado our buildings will come apart. In Building 1961, seek refuge in the main hallway as close as you can to the wall by the break room or in the north south hallway on the east side of the building. In Building 1990, seek shelter in the rst oor restrooms, break areas and adjacent hallway In Building 1900W, the best refuge areas are on the rst oor hallway outside TCAQ o ces or the 1st oor conference room. If you can’t make it to the rst oor the main hallway on the second and third oors are a 2nd best In Building 1900E, the best refuge is the rst oor hallway. Second best refuge is the second and third oor hallways or the staircases. In Building 1700, best refuge location is the 1st Floor hallway outside TCSG or the hallway leading to the north parking lot. Second best are the hallways on any oor.
