Abstract:

The arrival of the 5th Transportation Command Terminal A and the 8th Transportation Group Motor Transport greatly reduced the backlog of deep draft cargo vessels waiting to be unloaded and facilitated a speedier movement of cargo to forward supply areas. A turning basin and channel was dredged to permit entry of deep vessels into the harbor. A Delong Pier and causeway were constructed within the harbor to permit berthing of deep draft vessels. Two of the planned four sections are complete. Logistical support was effected to Operations Paul Revere II, Paul Revere III, Paul Revere IV, Thayer I, Thayer II, Irving, North Carolina, Maeng Ho 6, and Prairie. Buildup of Dak To Supply Point was accomplished.
