Fleet Transition

Planned and managed the logistics services for the for the fielding of a new fleet of vehicles and communications systems for an Army Signal battalion. These services included the preparation and disposition of the old fleet of vehicles and communications systems, the receipt and distribution of the new fleet of vehicles and communications systems, and the coordination of all services in support of training personnel on the new systems.

Tactical Communications Service

As the Signal Platoon Leader in an Army Air Defense Artillery (ADA) Battalion, I was responsible for designing and leading the operation of the communications service that connected the Battalion Fire Direction Center (FDC) with the Battalion’s firing batteries and with the Brigade (higher headquarters) FDC. This service was actually composed of two distinct, but interdependent, services – the actual communications service and, because this was Cold War Europe, relocating the service to different locations when the situation demanded.
