The MMO's maintenance managers regularly coordinated with 13 brigades, and at times more, within the MND-B AOR.
The transportation integration division (TID) refined the execution of the consolidated receiving and shipping points (CRSPs), thus creating a single point for receiving and issuing classes II (clothing and individual equipment), VII (major end items), and IX within MND-B. The operation of the CRSPs reduced the number of theater resupply convoys on MND-B MSRs, reduced time of materiel on station, increased the retrograde of excess class VII and IX items to Kuwait, and facilitated the delivery and retrograde of class VII and IX items to BCTs.
In conjunction with the 1st Cavalry Division Combat Aviation Brigade, the TID provided aerial logistics in support of all units in the MND-B area of operations.
At the division's RIP/transfer of authority, the span of control consisted of approximately 16 JNNs and 39 CPNs, representing eight BCTs in MND-B. Many of the line-of-sight links and all associated equipment had been passed from division to division for the last two Operation Iraqi Freedom rotations.
Prior to MND-C establishment, MND-B consisted of Division Main and 12 brigades.
All associated LOS links, Hub links and any fiber connectivity were cut from MND-B and transferred to MND-C.
In February 2007, MND-B began emplacing joint security stations and combat outposts throughout Baghdad.
The 15th Sustainment Brigade supported the action by providing world-class transportation support to MND-B units and other units throughout Iraq.
MND-B and MND-C brigade supply hubs maintained multiple days of supply for most basic commodities.
The high operational tempo within MND-B and MND-C presented unique challenges to the RIC-GEO manager.
During the past year, a QASAS completed routine site assistance visits in the MND-B area.
The team assisted ammunition managers in calculating net explosive weights, reviewed public traffic routes and distances to inhabited buildings, and provided advice to MND-B leaders about which ammunition sites should be awarded licenses or waivers for operations.
