Stabbing the beach at JLOTS
080721-A-4704P-110 - Soldiers with the 331st Transportation Company from Fort Eustis, Va., "stab" the beach with the Army Trident Pier July 21, during Joint Logistics Over the Shore 2008. The Trident Pier is a floating causeway that will allow Soldiers and Sailors to move rolling stock and shipping containers from ships anchored at sea onto the shore using an improvised port. The critical training the Soldiers and Sailors receive allows them to quickly and efficiently move equipment from ship to shore for military missions or humanitarian assistance when a port is nonexistent or has been destroyed.
