Equipment Concentration Site Keeps Army Reserve Rolling Along
While the large wheeled vehicles stored at Fort Hunter Liggett's Equipment Concentration Site 170 are the most visible, more than 350 different types of equipment such as tents, generators, and communications equipment are counted in the ECS inventory. “We work on everything from small 3K generators to the M88 Hercules (armored recovery vehicle), which is the largest piece of rolling stock in the Army Reserve,” said Andrew Gallagher, maintenance supervisor. “At any one time we’ll have possibly 40 mechanics on the floor, working on any type of equipment from the newest JLTV to one of the oldest pieces of equipment, M-113 (personnel carrier) which was common during Desert Storm. Everything the Army Reserve fields out to the Soldiers we have some variety of it right here.”
