    CHARLESTON, S.C. (May 25, 2022) Army units from Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) and Navy units from Military Sealift Command (MSC) and Navy Cargo Handling Battalion One (NCHB-1) came together in May to train in U.S. Transportation Command’s Field Training Exercise (FTX) Turbo Distribution 22-4 (TD 22-4). The exercise’s architects, USTRANSCOM-J37 planners, designed TD 22-4 to overlap the real-world maintenance cycle of Army Prepositioned Stock (APS), stowed in MSC’s Large, Medium Speed Roll-on/Roll-off ship USNS Pomeroy (T-AKR-316) to provide the training audience with real-world military cargo and maximize training value. The exercise training audience consisted of SDDC’s 832nd Transportation Battalion, 597th Transportation Brigade, 690th Rapid Port Opening Element, and contracted stevedores, MSC’s Expeditionary Port Units (EPUs 109, 110, and 113), Navy’s Cargo Handling Battalion One (NCHB-1), and Army Materiel Command’s (AMC)-contracted longshoremen, according to Austin Emery of USTRANSCOM’s Joint Directorate of Operations and Logistics.
