    The Navy Airlift Clearance Authority paid a special visit July 14-15 to the Logistics Support Activity to benchmark their program against the Army Airlift Clearance Authority. During the visit, Pat Edwards, chief of the NACA, and Debra Williams received briefings on LOGSA's Transportation, Operations, Plans and Security Division as well as the Special Assignment Airlift Missions. The visitors also toured the AACA's Combatant Command Focus Team, Customer Support Team, and Transportation Analysis Team to learn more about communication with overseas counterparts and the methods the Army uses to handle large volumes of transportation shipments. "This visit was an excellent opportunity to strengthen the working relationship between the two services in order to better serve the war fighter," TOPS deputy chief John Hall said.
