Marines: Marine Corps, Army collaborate to support joint force

Commanding General Gen. Dennis L. Via joins Marine Corps Logistics Command Commanding General Maj. Gen. John J. Broadmeadow for a tour of Production Plant Albany in Albany, Ga., Sept. 12. The leaders discussed collaborative efforts to support the joint warfighter.

Two experts at keeping military fighting forces supplied and ready exchanged their experiences and ideas, Sept. 12.

Army Gen. Dennis L. Via, commanding general, U.S. Army Materiel Command, Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, Ala., visited Marine Corps Logistics Command in Albany, Ga., and met with Maj. Gen. John J. Broadmeadow, commanding general, MCLC, discussed collaborative efforts to support the joint warfighter.

“This was a great opportunity to share information and look at more ways for us to collaborate in the future,” Via said. “Our collective goal in supporting the joint warfighter calls for us to establish more interoperable capabilities.”

AMC is the premier provider of Army and joint readiness to sustain the nation’s strength. The command develops and delivers global readiness solutions to sustain unified land operations.

This was Via’s first visit to MCLC and also marked the first visit to the organization by a senior Army leader in recent history.

The meeting provided an opportunity to follow up on the support AMC already provides to the Marine Corps, which includes work at some of the command’s depot maintenance facilities and in theater.

Discussions highlighted the common interests of both services and delved into topics such as the pre-positioned stocks that each command maintains.

As the Army’s Lead Materiel Integrator, AMC maintains strategic-level equipment sets ready for worldwide operations. The leaders noted that strategic prepositioning of materiel and equipment is a key component of global agility and increases operational reach of the Joint Force.

Other topics of discussion included the retrograde of equipment from Afghanistan. The Army is currently moving about 97,000 containers, 45,000 vehicles and more than 3 million individual pieces of equipment out of the combat environment.

Via invited Broadmeadow for a reciprocal visit to AMC so they could continue the collaborative effort.
