MANILA — The Philippine Army (PA) and U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC) wrapped up the second phase of the Logistics Subject Matter Expert Exchange (LOGSMEE) hosted by USARPAC’s 8th Theater Sustainment Command (8TSC) at Fort Shafter, Oahu, Hawaii on September 30, 2022.
Colonel Jonjie Juguilon, PA’s Deputy Assistant Chief of Staff for Logistics, and Colonel Tracy Lanier, USARPAC’s 8TSC Deputy Commander, spearheaded the four-day bilateral activity in Hawaii.
The LOGSMEE, which is alternately hosted by the Philippines and the U.S., is aimed at enhancing the interoperability of both armies in logistics operations. It also provides a platform for sharing best practices on logistics operations in support of combined arms operations and sustaining strong relations between PA and USARPAC logisticians.
It can be recalled that key logisticians of both armies conducted the 2022 LOGSMEE’s first phase in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Metro Manila on July 2022. (ai/mtvn)
