    Story by Sgt. Connie Jones 

    184th Sustainment Command

    Spc. Kayla Adams is currently deployed with 184th Sustainment Command to Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, serving in the support operations mobility-sea branch. She is responsible for tracking relevant vessel (ship) movements in the Middle East. During her deployment with the unit, Adams was promoted to the rank of specialist.

    The 184th assumed responsibility of daily sustainment operations throughout the Middle East in December of 2018. The unit serves as the operational command post for the Ft. Knox-based 1st Theater Sustainment Command and manages the day-to-day sustainment operations theater wide. The area of responsibility includes 20 countries, with four ongoing U.S. military operations, covering 4.5 million square miles, 550 million people, and 22 ethnic groups speaking 18 different languages.

    The 1st TSC supplies everything from food, water and meds to vehicles and repair parts so warfighters can accomplish their mission. They manage the ports that the vessels arrive at, flights, and customs points needed to keep people and equipment moving 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They also provide support in the areas of financial management, human resources, humanitarian aid distribution, host-nation engagements, and medical care for troops and civilians within the command.

    The unit is expected to return later this year.
