Marine Military Transition Teams train Iraqi counterparts

Officers with the Iraqi Army's 1st Division visited Camp Taqaddum March 7, 2006 to gain insight into what Marine logistics officers have to do to keep a 29,000-strong force operating. The Iraqis met with their Marine counterparts who gave them a presentation about some of the core functions of logistics, which included supply, maintenance, food services, and ammunition distribution. The Iraqis then toured the Marines' logistics operations center and were briefed on computer systems the Marines use to track the millions of pounds of supplies being shipped in and around Iraq. 'Logistics is the back bone of an army. It provides the support. We don't want our back to be broken,' said Lt. Col. Waleed Yousif, logistics officer for the 3rd Brigade of the Iraqi Army's 1st Division. Military Transition Teams with the 1st Iraqi Army Division have been assisting Iraqi units with building their personnel and equipment databases, advising them on procurement, storage and distribution of supplies, and have been teaching them how to plan for future needs in case of contingencies.
