Over the course of Florence, the DLA processed 1,159 trailers full of relief supplies using 11 military personnel and 37 civilians who are part of the DDXX team.
In 2010, the DDXX was developed to support contingency operations to Kandahar, Afghanistan.
That falls to Major Ski and the DDXX. "We're basically a depot in a box," Strzalkowski says.
In a typical mission, like support for FEMA during Hurricane Florence, DDXX will set up operations in a 5,000 or so square foot area.
When it comes to actually executing the mission and deploying the DDXX, Strzalkowski gets an advance notification that he may be called into action.
The DDXX team met that afternoon and began packing equipment.
At that point, Strzalkowski says, DDXX waited for orders to begin shipping trailers out.
