Unit missions are conducted from three (3) different sites, and includes: Camp Al- Asad, Camp AL Taquadrum (TQ), and Camp Junction City. One mission that has truly showed the mental toughness of the 62D QM Company has been the daily operation at the Class I yard in the vicinity of Camp Al Asad. The unit has collectively come together to accomplish this mission.

In addition to the hard work that the unit puts forth on a daily basis in mission and training, the soldiers have found ways to participate in a flag football league, 3-on-3 basketball tournaments, and are currently undefeated in softball, at promotions and Soldier of the Quarter boards. This shows that the 62D Quartermaster Company is indeed a well- oiled machine.
