CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - As Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore operations here come to a close, interoperability between the services made the exercise a success.

JLOTS brought sailors, soldiers and airmen together to coordinate movement of heavy cargo and vehicles from ship to shore for a week-long exercise.

The exercise not only showcased operational compatibility, but fostered camaraderie among service members.

"I help the Army with food preparation," said Equipment Operator Construction Apprentice Kyle Durocher, assigned to Amphibious Construction Battalion Two. "I also work with them to clean the galley and keep the trash around the camp down to a minimum."

Working side-by-side with other branches of service can be beneficial, especially during an exercise as huge as JLOTS.

"You meet a different array of individuals," said Seaman Apprentice Michelle Hazen, assigned to ACB-2. "Not only do you make friends but you learn how they do the same job as you."

Navy and Army have always had a friendly rivalry but both branches came together for JLOTS.

"The interaction with Navy has been great," said Army Sgt. 1st Class Charles Berry, assigned to 11th Transportation Battalion Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment. "Having both services out here brings about better ideas that we can take back to our units."

Navy and Army showcased that working together to achieve a common goal is what it takes to accomplish the mission.

"To watch a Navy watercraft carry Army gear to the pier is a fine example of interoperability," said Capt. Clayton Saunders, Commodore of Naval Beach Group Two. "On that same token, to watch an army watercraft come ashore to a Navy beach and offload vehicles and supplies is quite a sight."
