Logistics Training Center Opens

13th COSCOM PAO

LSA ANACONDA, BALAD, Iraq — With the opening of a new logistical training facility here Oct. 1, LSA Anaconda continues its role of providing logistics excellence for the theater.

The Automated Logistics Assistance Team training facility provides the opportunity for units to receive classroom training, over-the-shoulder tailored training and technical assistance support for all of the Army's automated logistics systems without having to leave theater.

Having the ALAT in Iraq saves units time and money and provides immediate assistance to deployed Soldiers. Without the team in Iraq, units would have to travel to Kuwait or to Fort Lee, Va. for training or assistance with the Army's logistics computer systems.

The ALAT has been in operation for several weeks and the opening ceremony was combined with a graduation ceremony for the first group of Soldiers to be trained in Iraq on a new company-level property accountability system.
