The 553rd Combat Sustainment Support Battalion said goodbye to their last Transportation Company this week; the Trail Blazers from the 1176th Transportation Company from Smyrna, Tennessee. They did an outstanding job providing retrograde transportation support for Regional Commands South and East. Additionally, they provided invaluable sustainment support across Regional Command South, Southwest, and West as the last major base in RC-West was handed over to Afghan Forces. They supported field feeding and MHE operations at the last coalition base in RC-West and provided fuel and MHE operations in support of the Marines closing Camp Leatherneck.
