Contingency Response Group tests Port Opening capability

U.S. Army Spc. Courtney Brown, an all-terrain forklift driver and cargo strapper for the 688th Rapid Port Opening Element, unstraps cargo after arriving at the forward operating node at Amedee Army Airfield, Calif., on March 9, 2016. The 688th RPOE is working in conjunction with the Kentucky Air National Guard’s 123rd Contingency Response Group and a team from the Defense Logistics Agency to operate Joint Task Force-Port Opening Sangala during a week-long exercise called Operation Lumberjack. The objective of the JTF-PO is to establish an aerial port of debarkation, provide initial distribution capability and set up warehousing for distribution beyond the forward node.
