Tough ‘Ombres convoy to Canada

By Sgt. 1st Class Jay Townsend 90th Sustainment Brigade

Tough ‘Ombres from the 217th Transportation Company out of San Antonio, are transporting equipment across the country to support our Canadian allies during the upcoming Exercise Maple Resolve.

U.S. Army North and the Canadian Armed Forces plan year-round for the Canadian Army's Exercise Maple Resolve, the largest allied exercise conducted in North America. Maple Resolve provides an opportunity to enhance multi-national interoperability in a brigade-level field training exercise.

Col. Steve Pazak, 90th Sustainment Brigade commander, and Command Sgt. Maj. Brenda Acosta linked up with the convoy at Fort Knox, Kentucky, to offer encouragement along the journey and to stress the importance of the training/driving time as well as safety.
