Army Reserve Soldiers own the beach at Big Lots East 2017
The Harbormaster Command and Control Center (HCCC) sits on the beach at Joint Expeditionary Base Fort Story, Va. May 15, 2017. Soldiers from the 338th Transportation Detachment (Harbormaster) assembled the system in preparation for Big Logistics Over the Shore (Big LOTS) East 2017, a U.S. Army Reserve exercise that provides hands-on training for boat units, terminal battalions, and deployment support command units to sharpen critical tasks that support bare beach operations. The HCCC is a communications hub that provides a complete picture of beach operations and tracks supplies moving on and off vessels. (U.S. Army Reserve Photo by 1st Sgt. Angele Ringo)
