The 16th Sustainment Brigade, or “Knight’s Brigade,” has U.S. Army Soldiers in multiple countries across the European continent – including Greece. Soldiers, alongside NATO partners, have been providing a Life Support Area (LSA) for the transient unit, 1st Armored Division Combat Aviation Brigade, in Alexandropolis, Greece.
This LSA has multiple logistical commodities from across the Brigade to include fuel from 240th Composite Supply Company, maintenance support from the 317th Support Maintenance Company, food from the 55th Quartermaster Company, movement control from the 624th Movement Control Team, and even a game room and library provided by Morale, Welfare and Recreation.
Soldiers from the 1 AD CAB use this location to receive and ready equipment for onward movement using rail, commercial line haul, and barges. The movement control teams use pioneering technologies such as Distributional Retrograde Adaptive Planning and Execution Management, or DRAM, to live track equipment movements, giving commander’s more information to make informed decisions.
