Abstract : This analysis documents MTMC participation in the REFORGER 79 exercise. It evaluates MTMC planning for and execution of its role in the surface deployment and redeployment of the military equipment of major elements of the 1st Infantry Division (Mech), the 1st Cavalry Division, and supporting units to Europe and return to home station. Subject areas covered include: pre- exercise staffing planning; shipload and prestow planning; unit port call and installation outloading, to include pre-exercise rail outloading training; CONUS line-haul operations; CONUS SPOE and SPOD operations; European SPOD and SPOE operations; cargo documentation procedures; and conclusions and recommendations. As in previous REFORGER exercises, REFORGER 79 demonstrated that the United States surface transportation system is capable of supporting major military unit deployments.
