The 1394th redeployed the 1397th DDSB, which served as the Container Management Element in both the OIF and OEF theaters, in December 2009.
Assigned to the DDSBs are 21 port management teams, 19 terminal service teams and nine automated cargo documentation detachments.
The 840th, supported by elements of the 1397th DDSB that were attached, prepared a Program of Instruction for a course that would remedy the problem and presented the idea to Multi-National Corps-Iraq.
Currently, the 1185th DDSB is mobilized in Support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and is performing its primary duties at the Port of Ash Shuaiba, Kuwait, but services the entire USCENTCOM area of operations, with a presence in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait.
On the ground for the 840th DDSB
was SFC Sidney Theard, who was responsible for the transfer of the cargo from the local truck carrier to the ocean carrier, APL.
As the TTB model is replaced by the DDSB model, there are significant changes in the way units will operate when they reach the port.
While TTBs were tasked to load vessels, the DDSB is primarily responsible to provide command and control of an operation.
The group deployed the 1397th DDSB
in February to conduct port operations in support of the 595th Transportation Group.
The 831st DDSB is a cohesive team comprised of dedicated soldiers, civilians, and local national employees who provide unparalleled, dependable, world-class support to the joint Warfighter.
831st DDSB has two forward-deployed detachments in Qatar and Bagram, Afghanistan.
As an Army Reserve unit, the 1184th DDSB
only brings the skill sets required of the various military occupational skills that make up our soldiers, but the battalion also deploys equipped with lifetimes of experience in a wide variety of jobs, tasks, and careers.
The 1181st DDSB
recently performed one historical landmark at Port Shuaiba by unloading the 10,000th Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle.
