  • 4. REAR ADMIRAL BRIAN NELSON MCCARTHY 1967 - 1996 SUPPY CORPS, UNITED STATES NAVAL RESERVE [Continued]Naval Air Station Cecil FieldSuccessfully redesigned the logistics infrastructure of this Naval Air Station improvingoperational efficiency and delivery response time by 35% and saving the navy $20million/annum according to GAO.NAS Cecil Field was the largest military base in the Jacksonville, Florida area. The complexconsisted of 22,939 acres. Squadrons from NAS Cecil Field were aboard every Atlantic Fleetaircraft carrier deployed to Southeast Asia during the Vietnam conflict. The first AtlanticFleet Squadrons to fly the A-7 Corsair II, the FA-18 Hornet, the S-3A and S-3B Viking, andthe ES3 Shadow were all based at NAS Cecil Field. Cecil Field squadrons again made historyduring operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, marking the final combat deployment forthe A-7E Corsair II and the first combat operations for the S-3B Viking.The aviation infrastructure located on the Base includes four runways [The North/Southrunways consists of one runway which is 12,500 feet and one which 8,000 feet. TheEast/West runways are each 8,000 feet in length], eight hangars, which total over 750,000square feet of space; 537,000 square yards of ramp space; a control tower; and aviationfueling systems. In addition to these facilities, the station features aviation maintenance andtraining facilities, which include flight simulators, jet engine test cells, avionics repairfacilities, and classrooms.Desert Storm/ShieldPrincipal Logistics Planner during DESERT STORM/SHIELD Chief of Naval Operations [N4]and Commander, Defense Logistics Agency Contingency Support teams. As in previouslarge logistic support operations during World War II, the Korean conflict and the VietnamWar, more than 90 percent of the heavy equipment, ammunition, fuel and other supplies forDESERT SHIELD/ STORM were carried by sealift. The strategic sealift mission included bothsurge shipping during initial mobilization and resupply or sustainment shipping.As in previous large logistic support operations during World War II, the Korean conflict andthe Vietnam War, more than 90 percent of the heavy equipment, ammunition, fuel andother supplies for DESERT SHIELD/ STORM was carried by sealift. The strategic sealiftmission included both surge shipping during initial mobilization and resupply or sustainmentshipping.Within one month of mobilization 100 Military Sealift Command [MSC] controlled ships weresupporting DESERT SHIELD. More than 100,000 U.S. military personnel and their equipmenthad been deployed to Saudi Arabia and the surrounding area in the first 30 days. Seacontrol-- assured from the outset by the U.S. Navy --made possible the safe rapiddeployment of MSC ships and assured the availability of required civilian charter vessels atreasonable rates. Revised 8/10
  • 5. By mid-December more than 180 ships were assigned to or chartered by MSC. The entiresealift operation had already transported nearly 7 billion pounds of fuel and 2.2 billionpounds of cargo --moving more cargo farther and faster than any other time in history.Additional reinforcement of DESERT SHIELD forces --saw 220 ships come under MSCcontrol. Winter storms and nearly 40-foot seas did not slow the largest sealift effort sinceWorld War II. By March, an average of 84 million pounds of cargo was arriving in SaudiArabia daily. That average is even more impressive when contrasted with the 57 millionpound daily average during the 37-month-long Korean conflict and the 33 million pounddaily average to the Pacific theater during World War II.In the last week of December, dozens of ships loaded U.S. Army equipment in NorthernEuropean ports. MSC moved more than 2,000 tanks, 2,200 armored vehicles, 1,000assorted helicopters, hundreds of self-propelled howitzers and other equipment for theArmy alone. Hundreds of additional aircraft, trucks and other combat equipment were alsotransported for the Marines and Air Force. Ironically-- but perhaps not surprisingly --only4.4% of the dry cargo moved by sealift went to support naval forces. That total includedtons of equipment for three Navy Fleet Hospitals, including ambulances, generators andother support gear. During DESERT SHIELD/ STORM, MSC also moved nearly 12 billionpounds of fuel and hundreds of millions of pounds of ammunition.With the exception of the allied invasion of Normandy, during which-- after two years ofpreparation --more than 20,000 vehicles and more than 176,000 troops assaulted fivebeaches in two days, sealift for DESERT SHIELD/STORM, with no prior buildup at all,represents the largest sealift to a single theater in the history of warfare. It was also thefarthest, with the average voyage covering nearly 8,700 miles.Sealift moved 2.4 million tons of cargo during the first six months of DESERT SHIELD. Bycomparison, that is more than four times the cargo carried across the English Channel toNormandy during the D-Day invasion and more than 6.5 times that of the peak force build-up during the Vietnam War during a similar period. On 2 January 1991, at the peak of theDESERT SHIELD deployment, MSC had 172 ships underway.QUICK FACTS:Defense Logistics Agency [DLA] Fiscal Year 2009 revenues of nearly $38 billion would put DLA at #61 on the Fortune 500list, ahead of companies like American Express, DuPont and Coca Cola. • Employs about 25,000 civilians and military employees. • Supports nearly 1,600 weapon systems. • Manages eight supply chains and nearly five million items. • Administers the storage and disposal of strategic and critical materials to support national defense. • Operates in 48 states and 28 countries. • Processes 8,000 contract actions and 111,000 requisitions a day. • Manages 25 distribution depots worldwide. • Has the third largest storage capacity of the top 50 distribution warehouses behind FedEx and UPS.

These officers and their staffsare collectively known as the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (OpNav). I worked forThe Director for Material Readiness & Logistics [N4].Naval War College, Newport RII was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal by the Secretary of the Navy for designingand implementing the first war game with logistics constraints. While most of my work isstill classified, my logistics systems have had a significant impact on all naval war fightingsince the completion of this two-year project. Games are more realistic in that theatercommanders are now constrained in their strategy and tactics by available resources intheater, pipeline or production facilities throughout the world.War games have been part of the Naval War College Gaming curriculum since 1887. Theyare vehicles for generating, testing, and debating strategic and operational concepts, andfor exercising military and civilian decisions in maritime and joint warfare.The War Gaming Department is the worlds premier gaming organization, conductingapproximately 50 games yearly in support of internal College needs and externallygenerated requests from various branches of the Defense and Navy departments,operational commands and civilian agencies, including the Office of the Vice President of theUnited States, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Secretary of the Navy. To support theobjectives of each games sponsor, the War Gaming Department employs a wide variety ofgaming techniques ranging from complex, multi-sided, computer-assisted games to simpler,single-sided seminar games, and game foci can range from broad national strategies to thespecifics of tactics. Most games take place at the College, but some are conducted off site. Revised 8/10
