Petroleum supply specialists get hands-on training at Quartermaster Liquid Logistics Exercise
Sgt. James Tucker, a petroleum supply specialist (92F) with the 1018th Quartermaster Company, constantly monitors a fuel pump to ensure it is functioning properly during the Quartermaster Liquid Logistics Exercise (QLLEX) at Fort Pickett, Virginia which ran from June 12 through June 26, 2022. The two-week exercise was overseen by instructors from the 80th Training Command (TASS) and allowed Soldiers to get hands-on training with equipment they would use while deployed, including the Inland Petroleum Distribution System, or IPDS, which is a bulk fuel storage and pipeline system designed to move massive amounts of fuel forward in a theater of operations.
