CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - Commander, U.S. Transportation Command Air Force Gen. Duncan J. McNabb visited sailors, soldiers and airman during the multi-service cargo distribution exercise Joint Logistics-Over-the-Shore June 16.

JLOTS is a critical military capability that allows equipment and sustainment supplies to reach specific areas without the benefit of a fixed port facility. This is a capability where military forces can discharge a ship off shore and move cargo into an area of operations without improved port facilities. The exercise increases interoperability and improves military readiness by alleviating situational sustainment issues.

McNabb's visit included various stops around Camp Lejeune to witness firsthand the capability of joint logistics.

"I wanted to come here and see the capability and secondly to really say 'thank you' to all these great folks and all these great logisticians that bring this all together," McNabb said.

Despite a bit of rough weather and heavy seas, McNabb toured the Military Sealift Command Large, Medium-speed Roll-on/Roll-off ship USNS Seay.

"The weather wasn't the very best and it was probably superb that I got to see it in this state," McNabb said. "It was an opportunity to be able to see how well everything holds up and how this great team pulls it all together to make it happen. It is a perfect example of what we can do for the combatant commanders and the nature of what they need."

McNabb said he feels confident that the exercise is running smoothly and shows what USTRANSCOM is capable of.

"If USTRANSCOM needs to deliver, this is another way to say we can deliver the goods for you when you need it and where you need it," McNabb said. "My thanks to everyone for letting me come down here to see it firsthand; it was a great experience."

JLOTS demonstrates the Department of Defense's ability to deploy, discharge and conduct reception, staging, and deployment of unit equipment and sustainment in a scenario that requires ships to offload while still offshore. The events are designed to improve military readiness, increase interoperability among participating agencies and test new concepts. JLOTS is being conducted at Camp LeJeune, N.C., from June 15-19.
