Kristina Shelton, (left, foreground) 331st Transportation Company (Causeway), 24th Transportation Battalion, on the construction and placement of the trident pier floating causeway during the brigade's annual Joint Logistics Over The Shore training exercise dubbed Fall Trident. This was the first time Col. Farmen witnessed the JLOTS event. He later addressed the group of key leaders about the Army's modernization of equipment, and how the equipment upgrade will result in the Army having an even higher level of well-trained expeditionary force prepared and ready to support any mission, anywhere.
