SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, ILL. - National Guard Adjutants General from around the nation and representatives of the Chiefs of the Reserve Components of the Armed Forces met March 31 through April 2 at headquarters U.S. Transportation Command to synchronize their strategic alignment with the command.

The theme of the year's USTRANSCOM Reserve Component Chiefs and Adjutants General Conference, "Total Force, Total Partnership", reflects USTRANSCOM commander Air Force Gen. Duncan J. McNabb's personal sentiments.

"USTRANSCOM is a daily, continuous example of the Total Force Team," said McNabb. "That means this group shares in every victory, and shoulders every challenge along with the rest of the team - the active duty, civilians, and commercial partners."

USTRANSCOM, one of 10 joint combatant commands, is manned by personnel from all the services and is responsible for creating and implementing world-class global deployment and distribution solutions for the Department of Defense; providing transportation, sustainment, fuel and distribution for the nation's warfighters.

During an average day, this includes conducting 2,298 domestic freight shipments, 500 container shipments, 287 airlift air missions, 91 air refueling missions with 35 ships, loading, unloading or underway and operating in 75 percent of the world's countries.

Guard and Reserve personnel make up more than 55 percent of USTRANSCOM's workforce. Without the efforts of these citizen-soldiers -- airmen, sailors, Marines and Coast Guard -- the command could not move the cargo, troops, supplies and sustainment the nation needs

"You are all part of a championship team," McNabb told his audience. "This last weekend we found out who the 'final four' are in NCAA basketball. There is no question about who the Department of Defense's logistics champions are!"

In addition to McNabb, participants heard from Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander, U.S. Northern Command; Air Force Gen. Arthur J. Lichte, commander, Air Mobility Command (one of USTRANSCOM's three component commands) and Army Maj. Gen. James L. Hodge, commander, Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (another USTRANSCOM component command).

Attendees included Air Force Gen. Craig McKinley, chief of the National Guard Bureau; Air Force Lt. Gen. Charles E. Stenner Jr., chief of the Air Force Reserve; Air Force Lt. Gen. Harry Wyatt, director of the Air National Guard; Air Force Maj. Gen. Jim Graves, assistant to the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff for Reserve Matters; Army Maj. Gen. Mike Sumrall, assistant to the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff for National Guard Matters, Navy Rear Adm. Robert Wray, deputy commander of Military Sealift Command - the third component command of USTRANSCOM - and Air Force Brig. Gen. Howard Thompson, deputy to the Chief, Air Force Reserve.
