By USAF Capt. Emily Jarding, TCSG The U.S. Transportation Command O ce of the Command SurgeonÂ’s TRANSCOM Patient Movement Requirements Center-West organized moving a critically ill patient on heart-lung bypass from Japan to Texas in January. What began as a common cold associated with the u quickly developed into an aggressive pneumonia that a military treatment facility was unable to slow or treat. In coordination with the Japanese healthcare agency, the patient was transferred to a host nation facility capable of handling the patientÂ’s rapidly declining health. Eventually, the HNF placed the patient on heart-lung bypass -speci cally, an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine which provides both cardiac and respiratory support to persons whose heart and lungs are unable to deliver an adequate amount of gas exchange to sustain life. This procedure was followed by a request to move the patient within 72 hours from Kadena Air Base, Japan, to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas. A nine-member specialty ECMO team from Fort Sam Houston, in conjunction with a three-member critical care air transport team from Kadena Air Base, were tasked to pick up the patient and y from mainland Japan directly to San Antonio. The last time the Paci c theater and TPMRC-W supported an adult ECMO patient move was in 2012. Due to the sheer size and expanse of the Paci c itself, comprehensive planning was required to complete such an endeavor. The TPMRC-W sta along with the ECMO and CCATT teams, applied extensive critical and outside-the-box thinking in planning every movement detail with the HNF. Their e orts in mission planning, securing an aircraft, ground movements for patients and teams, patient loading, en-route care, o oading and transportation at the destination ight line resulted in a successful mission. Members of a critical care air transport team from Kadena Air Base, Japan, and specialty extracorporeal membrane oxygenation team from Fort Sam Houston, Texas, prepare to move a critically ill patient from Japan to Texas in January. The TRANSCOM Patient Movement Requirements Center-West team validated and coordinated the patient movement. Courtesy photo.


By Chaplain Lt. Col. Leslie Forbes-MarianiWhen I was a child we celebrated Easter each year with a sunrise service. I remember we got up very early and dressed in our Easter splendor (which grandma made for us) and went to a park with a very tall white cross on top of a hill. We gathered around the cross and sang hymns and listened to the message of Christ and his rising from the dead. After that, we went to grandma’s house where the smells of roast beast (lamb, beef, turkey, etc.) oated in the air and a feeling of celebration vibrated around us as the adults prepared the Easter egg hunt in the yard. We opened our baskets lled with the candy mother load and chomped on the bunny ears. Now, as I grow older and prepare the roast beast and celebrations for my own family I am reminded of the reason for the celebration. This is the most solemn and celebratory holy holiday in the Christian calendar. I am remembering what Christ did on the cross. He died and rose from the grave so the all who call on him might be saved. Saved from sin, shame, sickness and pain. The rst council of Nicaea A.D. 325 resulted in the rst uniform Christian doctrine, revised in A.D.381 known as the Nicene Creed. Many of those who call themselves Christian believe this creed. “I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible: And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-bego en son of God, bego en of his Father before all worlds, God of God, light of light, very God of very god, bego en, not made, being of one substance with the Father, By whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and was made man, and was cruci ed also for us under Pontius Pilate. He su ered and was buried, and on the third day he rose again, ascended according to the scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and si eth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come with glory to judge the quick and the dead. Whose kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the See Chaplain on page 3 U.S. Transportation Command O ce of Public A airs 508 Sco Dr. Sco AFB, Illinois 62225-5357 h p:// Email: transcom.sco Phone: (618) 220-4999, DSN 770-4999 FAX: (618) 229-2811, DSN 779-2811 Commander Gen.

By TCPAAir Force Gen. John E. Hyten, commander, U.S. Strategic Command, spoke to members of U.S. Transportation Command and its component commands March 6 in the Seay Auditorium. Hyten was the sixth guest in USTRANSCOM’s 30-4-30 Distinguished Speaker Series, an initiative to celebrate the command’s 30th anniversary in October 2017. Air Force Gen. Darren W. McDew, USTRANSCOM commander, has invited 30 four-star general o cer, ag o cer and equivalent strategic senior leaders to speak about how they view the globe, linkages between USTRANSCOM’s and the leader’s organization, and a vision for USTRANSCOM partnerships. Hyten is responsible for global command and control of U.S. strategic forces to meet decisive national security objectives, providing a broad range of strategic capabilities and options for the president and secretary of defense. While here, he also had an o ce call with McDew and participated in a strategic roundtable with command senior leaders. During his remarks, Hyten observed the close tie between USSTRATCOM and USTRANSCOM in how both approach their missions. “We’re not functional combatant commands,” he said, “we’re global warfighting commands.” “We come to work every day to deter any action that would harm our homeland,” he added. Hyten assumed his present duties in November 2016. He a ended Harvard University on an Air Force Reserve O cer’s Training Corps scholarship, graduated in 1981 with a bachelor’s degree in engineering and applied sciences, and was commissioned a second lieutenant. His career includes assignments in a variety of space acquisition and operations positions. He served in senior engineering roles on both Air Force and Army anti-satellite weapon system programs. His sta assignments include tours with the Air Force Secretariat, the Air Sta the Joint Sta and the Commander’s Action Group at Headquarters Air Force Space Command as director. He was mission director in Cheyenne Mountain and was the last active-duty commander of the 6th Space Operations Squadron at O u Air Force Base, Nebraska. In 2006, he deployed to Southwest Asia as Director of Space Forces for operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Hyten commanded the 595th Space Group and the 50th Space Wing at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, and later served as vice commander then commander of Air Force Space Command. Air Force Gen.

By Lisa M. Caldwell, TCPAAir Force Reserve Col. Je rey S. Kozak is deputy director Mobilization, USTRANSCOM Operations and Plans directorate, and a command pilot. In his civilian role as a United Parcel Service pilot, he recently applied innovative principles to the company’s challenge of maintaining an uninterrupted supply of jet fuel into Louisville during peak season, the two weeks before Christmas. “I’m on a UPS Airlines fuel team with Julie Raisor, Air Region Compliance Data Analytics supervisor, and Geo Schnurr, nancial analyst,” said Kozak. “We knew there was a be er way to manage fuel during peak by using data analytics, business intelligence tools and previous work experience to develop an optimized plan that could be more e ective and e cient.” Kozak said his team formed and used BI tools to save more than several hundred thousand dollars, reduce more than 1,300 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, and sustain a way to handle future jet fuel disruptions. “Once we completed the Peak Optimized Air Tanker Plan and BI tools, we briefed members of the ight operations team and persuaded them to think about the situation di erently and in turn, perform di erently,” said Kozak. “The combination of an inability to maintain su cient on-airport fuel inventory level and the limitations in delivering fuel to both the air eld and to aircraft via truck resulted in a need to air tanker fuel into Louisville,” said Kozak. “This means uploading enough fuel on an aircraft to eliminate the need to refuel before a follow-on destination.” While air tankering fuel into Louisville during peak is not new, Kozak said the previous process fueled selected ights with a blanket amount by aircraft type. “For example, an MD-11 would automatically receive an additional 9,400 gallons of fuel,” he said. “This didn’t consider the distance to be own, cost of fuel at origin or the outbound destination from Louisville, which made it costly and ine cient.” Kozak said the key was to manage increased fueling requirements generated by the record number of ights in and out of Louisville during Peak 2016, while minimizing the amount of air-tankered fuel without reducing package volume capabilities. “Our solution was innovative because it made UPS think unconventionally and overcome a longstanding paradigm,” he said. “And, the Louisville air district manager said the e orts led to less congestion around the aircraft and a safer environment.” By Knowledge Management U.S. Transportation Command Knowledge Management O cer Stephen Koronka welcomed his component counterparts March 9 for a day-long o site around building a shared understanding of their command KM programs. The interactive session marked the rst time Koronka, Chris Trimpey from Military Sealift Command, Navy Capt. Jason Haen from the Joint Enabling Capabilities Command and Chris Rosenthal from 18th Air Force met to discuss the approach they are taking for their respective KM programs. “We’re meeting and learning from each other and raising the level of KM from a total enterprise perspective,” Koronka said in his opening remarks. KM is becoming more and more important to success at USTRANSCOM and its components as the environment they work in is becoming increasingly contested, said Koronka. “It’s easy (for leadership) to see KM as overhead,” Koronka said. “We have to prove our value every day. KM is not a luxury. It is a critical enabler. Operations are not as e ective without KM.” According to Air Force Maj. Gen. John C. Flournoy, Jr., USTRANSCOM chief of sta the workforce often states it doesn’t have time for KM. “You don’t have time not to think about KM; it will make you more e cient and cost e ective,” he said. The session focused on outlining each organization’s future vision for KM and how to get there. The group discussed the current state of KM at their organizations, de ned what KM means to them, shared examples of their KM activities and envisioned success. They also discussed the common challenges they all face, as well as the tools and frameworks they could bring back to their organizations to solve these challenges. By the end of the day, each participant developed a future vision for their KM programs and de ned the actions they need to take in the next ve days, ve weeks and ve months to reach that goal. They also agreed to continue collaborating to move their KM programs forward as a team. According to Koronka, the group plans to meet regularly, both virtually and in-person. “As a KM body, we need to use best practices to be together,” Koronka said. “We have to set an example of how to share knowledge for the rest of the enterprise.” He acknowledged technologies are helpful but not the only way to communicate. “It’s human nature,” said Koronka. “People want to see you and be taught face-to-face. Personal contact helps establish relationships.” Koronka said he’d like to bring leadership into future KMO o sites. “It’s good for them to see what we’re crafting: the systems and business rules for what the collaborative environment will look like throughout the enterprise,” he said.

By Peg Nigra, TCRCAccording to Air Force Gen. Duane H. Cassidy, USTRANSCOM’s rst commander-in-chief, selecting his deputy took a li le time. After turning down a few applicants, he said, “When I said yes to Al Herberger being the deputy commander, it was the most brilliant day of my life, I want to tell you that.” Navy Vice Adm. Albert Herberger was indeed a catch. A 1955 graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, New York, Herberger had extensive experience in personnel, training and logistics. Reporting for duty in September 1987, he brought the key skills the command needed to ful ll its mission as the Department of Defense’s single manager of transportation. When asked if he came with an agenda, he answered, “Yes, my agenda was to make it work.” The rst thing he worked on was the concept of operations for the edging uni ed command. By the time he arrived at USTRANSCOM, much of the groundwork had already been done by Air Force Maj. Gen. John E. Gri th, the command’s director of Operations and Logistics. Gri th’s team had traveled around the world asking the war ghting commanders what USTRANSCOM should do. Those answers built the foundation for the CONOPS and planted the seed for the Global Transportation Network, a system that would provide detailed and timely in-transit visibility of cargo and passengers. According to Dr. James K. Matthews, the command’s rst historian, the team “visited every [government] agency, every department that had transportation and/or deployment in their mission statement.” Herberger told Ma hews that the best thing that came out of that e ort was contacting the intelligence agencies. “The command needed to know what was moving on the oceans.” Herberger’s conversation with the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency about transportation intelligence sparked a relationship with the intelligence community that continues today. He also used his connections with labor and sealift industry organizations--the Seafarers International Union, the Navy League and the Propeller Club--to build relationships with USTRANSCOM. One of Herberger’s last assignments before coming to USTRANSCOM was as director of the Military Personnel Policy Division in the O ce of the Chief of Naval Operations. Dr. Ma hews credited Adm. Herberger with breaking “the logjam in the Navy personnel system that was keeping USTRANSCOM from lling its Navy billets, …se ing the precedent for bringing quality sailors into the command.” Herberger is also credited with formalizing USTRANSCOM’s ties to the Department of Transportation. Through Herberger’s e orts, Secretary of Transportation Samuel Skinner and Federal Highway Administrator Robert Farris traveled to Sco Air Force Base for a command orientation. Skinner acknowledged that USTRANSCOM had convinced him that national defense needed a healthy U.S. maritime industry. Herberger retired from USTRANSCOM and the Navy in early 1990. Three years later, he was appointed the Maritime Administrator. During his four-year tenure with the Maritime Administration, Herberger worked closely with USTRANSCOM to revitalize the Ready Reserve Force, and, in coordination with USTRANSCOM, drafted the Maritime Security Act, which President William J. Clinton signed into law in October 1996. Herberger’s most recent contribution to sealift was as an author. Global Reach: Revolutionizing the Use of Commercial Vessels and Intermodal Systems for Military Sealift, 19902012, wri en by Kenneth C. Gaulden, Rolf Marshall, and Albert Herberger, “provides a unique look into the development and implementation of over a century of U.S. national defense policy.” This book is available for check out from the Research Center. By Kevin Brisley, TCJ1 Why have a JQS? To create commissioned o cers educated and experienced in joint ma ers and to develop joint military leaders. JQS expanded the 1986 Goldwater-Nichols Act to include both Standard Joint Duty Assignments and recognition of inherently joint experiences. What you should know The JQS provides Active and Reserve Component o cers an opportunity to earn joint quali cations upon completion of the requisite joint professional military education and completion of a full tour of duty in a joint assignment (via either the standard path or the experience path). Completion of an S-JDA remains the primary means for an o cer to achieve joint experience and joint duty credit. Joint ma ers is de ned in law and based on joint doctrine. The de nition encompasses both “what you do” and “who you do it with” and is the primary criteria for evaluating positions for inclusion on the Joint Duty Assignment List and qualifying joint experiences. JDAL Validation: Sec 668, Title 10 directs the SecDef to limit joint duty assignments to those in which an o cer gains signi cant experience in joint ma ers. Joint duty assignments are listed in the JDAL; gaining significant experience in joint ma ers is the essential criteria for JDAL inclusion, exclusive of force management or assignment incentives. Every joint organization meets the JDAL Validation Board during the ve-year cycle. Joint organizations must focus on shaping the work to ensure a position provides joint ma ers experience to the incumbent o cer. Common factors a ecting JDAL and E-JDA approval: O cers in positions within joint organizations must be accomplishing joint ma ers duties, not primarily Service-speci c work; the position/organization must work at the strategic level. Work must demonstrate how it shapes the national strategic direction to achieve uni ed action.


By Dr. Robert Sligh, TCRCIn 1830 a new technology arrived from Great Britain—the steam locomotive and railroads. The Baltimore & Ohio opened that year with a urry of railroad companies following. Very quickly, railroads eclipsed canals for cheap bulk transportation. By 1850, there were 9,000 miles of railroad tracks. Ten years later there were 30,000 miles of track in operation. As railroads expanded, the cost of moving farm goods dropped 95% from 1815 to 1860. However, railroad mileage was not distributed evenly. The Southern States had only 9,000 miles or 30% of the total. Despite this disparity, the Confederacy was quick to use railroads to its advantage. During the ba le of First Manassas (a.k.a., First Bull Run), the Confederates were able to move 10,000 men from the Shenandoah Valley to the ba le, many of them marching straight into action. Their timely arrival gave the South its rst major victory. However, with few lines, di erent gauges and reduced ability to repair damage, railroads could be a vulnerability. That was true of Cha anooga, Tennessee. Two rail lines ran through it. The east-west Memphis & Charleston Railroad connected Richmond with Memphis and the Trans-Mississippi West. The north-south Western & Atlantic Railroad connected Tennessee to Atlanta. Capturing the city was a prime Union objective, though its topography made it a tough tactical nut to crack. James J. Andrews, a Union civilian scout and “part-time spy,” had a daring solution. In a coordinated a ack, he would lead a group of volunteers deep into Confederate territory, seize a train, and destroy as much railroad equipment as possible on his way north. At the same time, Union forces would move down the Memphis line. With no way to reinforce the city from Atlanta, Confederate forces would either have to withdraw or surrender. Andrews’ plan was approved and on April 10 he, another civilian and 22 volunteers from the 2nd, 21st and 33rd Ohio Infantry regiments—all in civilian clothing—set out in small groups. All but two made it to the rendezvous point at Marie a, Georgia. On April 12, 1862, the group seized a train, the General, at Big Shanty (now Kennesaw), Georgia and began what became known as “The Great Locomotive Chase.” The General’s conductor and a few soldiers pursued on foot, by handcar and then by a series of trains. The Union a ack on Cha anooga forced the Confederates to quickly send valuable supplies and rolling stock out of the city. Andrews and company were able to convince southbound train crews that as a special train, they had priority. Repeatedly, southbound trains were sidetracked, allowing Andrews’ Raiders to continue. They cut telegraph lines and tore up track where possible. The pursuers were closing and lack of adequate tools prevented the raiders from doing enough damage. After 92 miles, the General ran out of fuel. The raiders had to abandon the General 18 miles short of Cha anooga. Andrews’ Raiders sca ered but were all caught within two weeks. The military raiders were tried and convicted of “acts of unlawful belligerency” while Andrews and his fellow civilian were charged as “unlawful combatants and spies.” Andrews and seven others were tried and hanged. Fearing they, too, would hang, eight raiders were able to escape. Two of them oated down the Cha ahoochee River to the Gulf of Mexico, where the Union blockage ship USS Somerset rescued them. The six raiders still in custody were eventually exchanged for Confederate prisoners. Although their exploits were only partially successful, Andrews’ raid captivated the Union. Nineteen of the raiders received the newly instituted Medal of Honor. James J. Andrews, however, as a civilian, was not one of them. By Lisa M. Caldwell, TCPA Gail M. Jorgenson, Senior Executive Service, director, U.S. Transportation Command Acquisition Directorate, spoke to members of USTRANSCOM and its component commands March 24 in the Seay Auditorium about her career and the evolution of gender equality. Air Force Gen. Darren W. McDew, commander, USTRANSCOM, hosted the event to celebrate the women of USTRANSCOM in honor of Women’s History Month and as an initiative commemorating the command’s 30th anniversary in October 2017. Jorgenson is responsible for all ma ers related to the program management and acquisition of common-user transportation services, transportation-related services and information technology support for USTRANSCOM’s global transportation mission and the distribution process mission. She provides acquisition support for more than $7.3 billion in transportation services. Jorgenson said she originally went to school to be a business educator. Then, she was hired for a temporary government position which turned into a permanent one. “You are looking at the most unlikely SES in the world,” she said, “and the reason it happened is because other people saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself, and I took a minute to listen.” “Find somebody that inspires you and criticizes you kindly,” she added, “because that person needs to be a good mirror to you.” Jorgenson discussed several women in senior leadership positions who made a di erence in USTRANSCOM’s 30-year history and who all felt the mission was bigger than the leader. “Our trailblazers are not in our past, they’re in our future, men and women alike,” she said. “You have a commander who wants you to take risks, he wants you to be scary, he wants you to challenge yourselves and he wants you to be innovative -take advantage of that.” “Ms Jorgenson’s career is remarkable, re ecting integrity and dedication to service,” said Air Force Master Sgt. Tarha A. Mazyck, superintendent, Commander’s Action Group. “As a military acquisition professional, her words encouraged me to continue to See AQ on page 8
