835th Transportation Battalion participates in Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection Exercise.

The 835th Transportation Battalion, with the support of U.S. Army Garrison, Japan and 10th Area Support Group, conducted a capstone Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection Exercise Sept. 21 at Naha Military Port, Okinawa, Japan.

The exercise was a culmination of months of training and included participants from all activities and units on Naha Military Port as well as the Army on Okinawa Fire Chief, Torii Station Provost Marshal's Office, and the Camp Kinser Marine Corps Base PMO.

The Marine Corps Base Fire Chief, Naha City Fire Department, Japanese Ground Self Defense Force, and Japanese Air Self Defense Force personnel observed the exercise and plan on participating in the future, as they are emergency response options for Naha Military Port.

Observer Controllers for the exercise, including 1st of the 1st Special Forces medics, 10th ASG Anti-Terrorism personnel, and the Okinawa Marine Corps Base Anti-Terrorism Officer, evaluated and tested Naha Military Port personnel and emergency responders on bomb threat reporting, general threat awareness, building evacuation procedures, command and control, emergency response, and casualty evaluation and evacuation. The exercise aided in enhancing installation awareness and crisis management, as well as strengthening relationships with local national emergency responders.
