Readiness Power Forward By 1st Lt.Joshua James, 541st CSSB, and David Ruderman, 402nd AFSB PAO CAMP VIRGINIA, Kuwait - In the history of the U.S.military there has never been a require-ment to retrograde as much equipment in as short a period of time as there was during Op-eration NEW DAWN (OND), in which American forces with-drew from Iraq.
In order to accomplish the mission, and with all the new systems being used to trans-port and track equipment, it was necessary to learn new skill sets and combine them in a logical, effective combination as part of Redistribution Prop-erty Assistance Teams (RPATs) teams formed to relieve units of equipment.Pvt.2 Jirad Williams, 402nd Army Field Support Brigade Public Affairs Pfc.Marcus Johnson (right), 541st Combat Sustainment Support Battalion support operations, works with Soldiers from 233rd Transportation Company, 113th Sustainment Brigade, to set up communications during Redistribution Property Assis-tance Team Academy training Jan.24 at Camp Virginia, Kuwait..
