Liquid logisticians rule at QLLEX 2017
U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers with the 728th Quartermaster Company, Fremont, Neb., release water from the line before they scrape the lines with a "pig," during QLLEX 2017, July 21, at Fort Bragg, NC. It's called a "pig" because as it moves through the line under pressure, it often makes a high-pitched squeal. QLLEX, short for Quartermaster Liquid Logistics Exercise, is the U.S. Army Reserve’s premier readiness exercise for fuel and water distribution. This year’s QLLEX is not only a full demonstration of the capability, combat-readiness, and lethality of America’s Army Reserve to put fuel and water where it is needed most – in the vehicles and hands of the war-fighter and maneuver units – but it also further exercises the interoperability of the U.S. Army Reserve alongside active Army and British Army logisticians.
