Army Maj. Gen. Greg Couch, chief of staff, U.S. Transportation Command, delivered remarks to the Clayton-Ladue Rotary Club on Wednesday. He explained the process of defense distribution, detailing how American men and women in uniform are kept supplied via air, land, and sea, no matter where they are in the world, including Antarctica and remote Pacific islands.
Couch’s remarks highlighted the logistical efforts under way to supply American and NATO efforts in the conflict in Afghanistan. He discussed the various routes of access the United States has into Afghanistan, especially into the nation’s northern border through the Northern Distribution Network.
“The Clayton-Ladue Rotary Club has for many years brought top-notch speakers to meet with our members. The Club and its members were pleased to host Major General Couch this week of Flag Day,” said Chuck McCloskey, president of the club.
“His remarks helped us understand the planning and logistics that support our American men and women in uniform all around the world. The logistics planning extends America to those serving her, especially in rugged Afghanistan,” he said.
