Abstract : This analysis of the Military Traffic Management Command's (MTMC) participation in the REFORGER 77 exercise provides a documentary narrative of the exercise deployment and redeployment, and an evaluation of the MTMC performance in the discharge of its REFORGER mission. Although problems in planning and execution have been identified and corrective actions recommended, the deployment and redeployment of the 1st and 4th Infantry Divisions (Mechanized)(-) was a highly successful operation. REFORGER 77 clearly demonstrated the Defense Transportation System's total approach capability to support the movement of the equipment of a mechanized infantry division from a CONUS origin to a potential combat employment destination overseas.
