"The Joint Task Force-Port Opening mission fuses the rapid airbase opening capability of the Air Force's Contingency Response Group with the critical over-land cargo movement capability of the Army's Rapid Port Opening Element. Within just a few hours after the joint team's arrival, we turn a patch of empty earth into a bustling logistics support hub."
