Combat Equipment Group Afloat/Asia
Army Materiel Command Afloat
The AMC-Afloat mission is to manage operations related to APS afloat (APS-3) at logistics support facilities in Goose Creek, SC, the Combat Equipment Base-Hythe (CEB-Hythe), located in Hythe, England, and the Army Maintenance Detachment-Diego Garcia. The AMC-Afloat also oversees logistics operations for container and ammunition ships at designated ports. The AMC-Afloat performs inherent Government functions and provides oversight of contractor functions performed IAW Statements of Work (SOW).
The mission of the Combat Equipment Group-Asia (CEG-A) was to oversee and manage operations related to Army Prepositioned Stocks afloat (APS-3), and APS-5. The CEG-A operated logistics support facilities for the storage, maintenance, modification, and related support of all classes of supply, less class VIII (medical). In March 1996, the U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC) directed the formation of a management structure designated as the Army War Reserve Support Command (AWRSPTCMD) for all APS assets. The AWRSPTCMD, a sub-command of the U.S. Army Industrial Operations Command (IOC) with headquarters at Rock Island, Illinois, instituted a command and control element for APS-3 and APS-5 stocks called the Combat Equipment Group - Asia, located at Charleston, SC. CEG-A consisted of an APS-3 equipment maintenance facility - formerly Combat Equipment Base-Afloat Charleston, SC), Combat Equipment Base-Southwest Asia (Qatar/Kuwait), Combat Equipment Base-Northeast Asia (Korea/Japan/Hawaii), and Combat Equipment Base-North Atlantic (Hythe, England), formerly called Hythe Army Depot Activity (HYDA).
With the reorganization from Combat Equipment Group-Asia to AMC-Afloat, responsibility for Combat Equipment Base-Northeast Asia transitioned to Army Materiel Command-Fwd Far East, and Combat Equipment Base-Southwest Asia transitioned to Army Materiel Command-Fwd SWA.
