Yep.

Strange bedfellows.

One Response to US Army Prepositioning Equipment in… Vietnam and Cambodia

    I spent four years in Combat Equipment Group, Europe, which at first stored about two and a half divisions’ worth of equipment all over Germany, with additional sites in Belgium and Luxembourg, and I activated a company in northern Germany when this project expanded in the late 1970s to include an additional division. Fun stuff to have thousands of vehicles in controlled humidity storage–we used to activate about two brigades” worth and take it back a month later during the annual Reforger exercises (Townie remembers these well, I am sure). I think this is a good idea, especially if it, as the article suggests, contests the Chinese claims to hegemony over the far western Pacific.
