Col. Charles Maskell, Joint Logistics Over the Shore and 7th Sustainment Brigade commander, watches his Soldiers successfully 'stab the beach with the bident pier' the morning of June 10 at Camp Lejeune's (N.C) Onslow Beach during the JLOTS 2009 exercise. Modular Warping Tugs power the pier toward shore. Once in place, the pier is used as a platform for the discharge of cargo from Army vessels. The cargo is then moved to a marshalling area for later distribution in support of the exercise.
