Cover: Since World War II, the Army often has faced the challenge of deploying troops and materiel onto undeveloped shores or to areas without usable port facilities. The solution has been joint logistics over-the-shore (JLOTS) operations, in which the Army and the Navy work together to move a ground force directly from ship to shore. The articles beginning on pages 20 and 24 describe the largest JLOTS exercise ever held in peacetime, the U.S. Transportation Command’s Pacific Strike 2008 in California. A JLOTS operation requires much specialized equipment, including the Army’s floating causeway trident pier shown on the cover. The trident pier allows Army and some Navy watercraft to unload rolling stock across the surf zone onto a beach.
