Marines with 1st Marine Logistics Group and 1st Marine Expeditionary Force participate in a motor transportation conference aboard Camp Pendleton, Calif., July 10, 2014. The event provided its participants with a overview of the logistics and motor transportation side of the Marine Corps, and how the processes apply in a forward environment, where 1st MLG complements IMEF’s expeditionary capabilities. In addition, the forum gave its participants a dynamic environment where they could communicate with each other freely and discuss current issues, improvements and solutions within the field of motor transport. “It’s important to keep everyone at all levels well-informed,” said 1st Lt. Dominic Svatos, motor transportation platoon commander with 7th Engineer Support Battalion, 1st MLG, and a Kansas City, Mo., native. “The more junior NCOs can disseminate the information effectively to their platoons and the information can filter down to the lower levels, keeping them updated.”
