FORT SHAFTER — The 8th Theater Sustainment Command is hosting a Senior Logistics Forum (SLF) at the Hale Ikena, here, May 17-19.

The event will cover three days of briefings, open discussions and dialogue ranging from Total Force Integration for active duty and reserve component sustainment units, to the role of sustainment in Multi-Domain Battle (MDB) concept, and culminate with a sustainment Rehearsal of Concept (ROC) Drill.

It will also include capability briefings lined up for active and reserve component U.S. Army Expeditionary Sustainment Commands (ESCs), service component briefings on MDB, and 8th TSC staff briefings to clarify sustainment requirements during the ROC Drill.

“Total Force Integration is really taking into consideration the unique capabilities that the Reserve component and active duty ESCs bring to the fight, and the ability for personnel in attendance to develop and maintain relationships with these organizations to assist in any future involvement ranging from exercises, humanitarian assistance/disaster relief missions, to operation plan execution,” said Maj. Joaquin Meno, 8th TSC G5 Plans officer and the lead coordinator for the SLF.

Day one will focus on Total Force Integration and will be unclassified. Day two will focus on MDB and will be classified. Those interested in attending who have proper clearance(s) will be vetted through the 8th TSC G2, but seating is limited to 150 per day, on a first-come, first-served basis

“Multi-domain battle is really starting to get off the ground as the Army’s future warfighting concept. With U.S. Army-Pacific as an Army leader in making MDB an operational reality, 8th TSC is in a very unique position,” said Capt A.J. Shattuck, 8th TSC G5 Strategic Planner.

“The senior logistics forum will gather sustainers throughout the Pacific theater and the greater Army to really tackle what this means for the sustainment community. We are leveraging this great opportunity to really drive forward the concept of operationalizing sustainment in a multi-domain battle environment,” said Shattuck.

Day three, ROC Drill briefings will all be classified, and only open to those verified by the 8th TSC G5 chief of Plans prior to the event.

“Understanding our plans, capabilities, gaps, and creating a network of logisticians in the Pacific is the key to success in any problem set in support of our Army commanders,” said Maj. Julio Colon, 8th TSC G5 chief of Plans.

There will be a no-host ice breaker social on May 17 at 4 p.m. at the Hale Ikena for all personnel interested in getting to know other participants and networking. An additional social event will be held at the end of Day 3, May 19, at 3 p.m. at the Hale Ikena to close out the overall event.
