EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The 96th Logistics Readiness Squadron celebrated National Transportation Week May 6-10.

“Our National Transportation Week events honor those who have paved the way in our transportation industry and symbolize our continuation of their legacy,” said 1st. Lt. Micah Harkin, project officer.  “We vow to continue the evolution of transportation and logistics.”

The goal of the celebration is to highlight the importance of transportation infrastructure, services, and innovation while addressing challenges and promoting collaboration across various sectors of the logistics enterprise.

This year’s activities included: a 3.6-mile ruck march; a squadron reveille formation; a truck pull and obstacle course event; a resilience workshop and a panel where Team Eglin members shared personal stories.

Additionally, the squadron hosted an Open House and a Touch-a-Truck event, to demonstrate to families how they impact the mission.

“Transportation is an important part of the mission,” said Harkin.  “Our transportation efforts help to allow the mission to happen at Eglin.”
