As part of its global posture, the U.S. military maintains war reserve materiel WRM, stocks of mission-essential secondary items, principal and end items, and munitions, to attain and sustain operational objectives in scenarios authorized by the Department of Defense DOD. Some of this materiel, designated pre-positioned WRM, or PWRM, is strategically located to facilitate a timely response during the initial phase of an operation. PWRM is stored worldwide at or near points of planned use in specialized facilities and dedicated ships.
