Upon arrival, CPT XXX ensured a vigorous 45-day training program with HHC/2/3/205 ANA was executed and trained over 100 Soldiers and over 100 ANA Soldiers on Convoy TTPs, up armored vehicle operations, roll over drills, M4 zero and qualification, and established initial SOPs for logistical packages (LOGPACs) and recovery operations. CPT XXX's efforts to build a solid relationship with his counterparts ultimately resulted in the logistics support of a combined task force of over 1,200 personnel across five geographically dispersed areas. CPT XXX supervised the bulk transportation and distribution of over 150,000 gallons of Class III (B) to two JCOPS and two patrol bases; he ultimately implemented an aggressive fuel management plan which resulted in .001% of fuel being lost or gained. Initially, the fleet operational rate stood at 90 percent- effectively removing an infantry section from the fight. However, he quickly formulated a quality control and servicing plan, created four maintenance support teams to live and work at each of our JCOP or patrol base and within 45 days brought the fleet up to 98 percent readiness. CPT XXX's intel cell expertly tracked over 100 separate CROs via Blue Force Tracker/FM/TIGR and coordinated ISR platforms in support of our Distribution Platoon convoy commanders. Furthermore, he accounted for all Class I, III, IV, V, VI, and VII commodities on FOB Wilson, two COPs, and two patrol bases to ensure supply on hand met the demands from six separate companies, a Sapper team, numerous reporters, and one ANA Infantry Battalion. CPT XXX supervised over 100 combat logistics patrols and over 20 recovery missions across the Kandahar, Pashmul, and Zhari districts to support Operation XXX, Operation XXX, and Operation XXX. These operations ultimately led to the successful resupply of over 3,000,000 rounds of CL V, over 200,000 meals, and over 10,000 Halal meals across the Area of Operations. CPT XXX's actions are in keeping with the finest traditions of military service and reflect distinct credit upon himself, Task Force, the 101st Airborne Division (AASLT), and the United States Army.
