Joint Base Charleston recently announced a major logistics operation that involves loading nearly 1,500 pieces of equipment to the cargo ship USNS Charlton.


As noted by the base, this maneuver is aimed at providing rapid response capabilities to potential contingencies.

To loaded equipment includes essential items such as vehicles, tents, radios, and spare parts that are critical to sustaining a brigade combat team. This comprehensive training is part of planned quarterly activities to support rapid deployment readiness.

This joint effort, with the support of the Army Field Support Battalion, the Army Sealift Command, the 841st Transportation Battalion and various contractors, emphasizes the military's ability to prepare and respond to a threat in critical times.

Once fully loaded, the USNS Charlton will be deployed at sea and will be ready for immediate deployment of military capabilities when the need arises.
