The Birth of the DTJ

By Lori Leffler, Chair, NDTA Special Projects Committee and COL Dennis Edwards, USA (Ret.), NDTA Life Member

Founded in 1944, NDTA will be celebrating its 75th Anniversary in 2019. To commemorate this milestone event, we will be publishing a series of articles selected from our archives that will highlight important events in our Association’s history.


oday’s NDTA dates back to October 11, 1944 and to the successful launch of the Army Transportation Association (ATA), the forerunner to the National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA). One of the many challenges to the fledgling organization was to get the word out of its existence, and to start an energetic membership recruitment drive; no sophisticated social media, cell phones or internet back then! They depended heavily on word of mouth and the printed word. Thus, when the Association voted to publish its own magazine, the idea was readily approved. Volume I, Number I was launched in February 1945, less than five months from the date ATA’s charter was signed. What followed for the rest of 1945 were 11 more journals jam packed with wartime transportation related articles. All were written by volunteer writers and illustrated by amateur artists. There was no budget for photography, and official military photos were hard to come by. You can see the first Journal cover from February 1945 above, as well as the January 1946 issue on page 130. Those first few years of the ATA were exciting times and much was initiated that would become the foundation of today’s defense transportation and logistics doctrine. Set during the waning years of WWII, many of the issues concerned the future of the Army Transportation Corps itself. Would it become a basic branch of the Army structure or would it be a subset of the Quartermaster General as it was during WWI? What about the role of troop transports and port operations, and where do rail and highway operations fit into the picture? In time, all of these issues were resolved and the Defense Transportation Journal became must See 75th Anniversary pg. 130


“Timing is Everything.” You hear that phrase often. Strategic relationships will eat timing for lunch. Strategic relationships are not about “winner takes all.” They are deliberate connections, built on trust over time—and they ensure purposes and goals of the relationship(s) are fulfilled. In this, the annual Almanac edition of the Defense Transportation Journal, you can see the relationships, both industry and government, that NDTA has forged. These relationships are vital to our Association and to our nation. NDTA’s goal is to build a trusted environment that enables government and industry have a neutral space for collabo-

Registration is now open for the NDTA-USTRANSCOM Fall Meeting at The meeting is being held 22-25 October at the Gaylord National Harbor in National Harbor, MD. This meeting is not only a shining example of a strategic relationship in action—it is an important opportunity for you to make connections and build your own strategic relationships. I hope you will plan to join us. ration (and action). This priority ensures a trusted strategic relationship, which assists in maintaining the interactions that are so important for our national defense. I think it is important that our industry partners reflect on why they belong and support NDTA—how is your organization and how are you personally working to strengthen the strategic relationship between military, government and industry?

Below are some of my own thoughts on the important role our industry members play in this endeavor. I hope these ideas will start a dialog and lead others who share our ethos towards active engagement. OUR ETHOS AS A COMPANY— HOW DO WE CONTRIBUTE THROUGH INVOLVEMENT IN NDTA?

• We actively maintain our inherent corporate social responsibility to support a strong national defense. There does exist a corporate responsibility that accomplishes successfully the art of business—but also generates social profit— in this case for our national defense. • Our company involvement fosters NDTA as a non-political, non-lobbyist association of military and industry members with a shared vision for the strength, health and readiness of our military, civil and industry logistics capabilities. • Our nation’s logistics capabilities and networks are part of a larger international logistics enterprise. NDTA’s membership boasts some of the finest transportation and logistics professionals in the world. As industry professionals who are squarely in the know regarding logistics issues, we leverage our knowledge and experience to help improve our military posture. • As industry members we must uphold the values of NDTA and ensure our reputations as trusted agents in support of our national defense. We hold each other accountable for this. • We belong to a community of patriots, whose interest is in positioning DOD to plan, exercise and compete to win in crisis or conflict. Our members share their valuable experience to accomplish this purpose. • Our company understands the need of our future leaders—in the military and industry. Through NDTA, we mentor

with influence, integrity and honesty. NDTA provides the opportunity for our company to help shape the future. • Through NDTA we are able to broaden our thinking across entire enterprises to avoid mistakes. We use our network to expose our company to the issues of the day. • Through NDTA we help solve the toughest problems impacting our nation’s ability to project and sustain our forces. Again, these are my thoughts meant to highlight to our industry partners just how important they are to our nation. If you have thoughts on how we can evolve our organization, please contact me or my staff. Before I end, I just want to remind everyone that registration is now open for the NDTA-USTRANSCOM Fall Meeting at The meeting is being held 22-25 October at the Gaylord National Harbor in National Harbor, MD. This meeting is not only a shining example of a strategic relationship in action—it is an important opportunity for you to make connections and build your own strategic relationships. I hope you will plan to join us. Until next time, thank you for all that you do and keep working on strategic relationships! DTJ |

Maintaining Our Maritime Force By Richard Berkowitz Director, Operations, Transportation Institute


lthough the US flag maritime industry faces many hurdles, moving forward its strategic partnership with the US military remains critical, symbiotic, and multi-faceted. Traditionally, the industry and military have long allied themselves to support a strong private sector merchant marine in Congress through legislation. A role gaining increasing recognition, respect, and achievement is the collaboration between the armed services and maritime industry with regard to hiring veterans for all facets of maritime employment. Such collaboration remains mutually beneficial on numerous levels–not least being the impact on career opportunities for veterans and separating service members.


| Defense Transportation Journal | JUNE 2018

The decline of available commercial mariners to crew the Maritime Administration’s (MARAD) National Defense Reserve Fleet (NDRF) and, most critically, the active component of these assets is repeatedly underscored by top sea service leadership when testifying in Congress or when asked to share their insights on national defense strategic vulnerabilities. The active component is comprised of 46 vessels in the Ready Reserve Fleet (RRF) and 15 vessels in the Military Sealift Command’s (MSC) surge component, maintained with skeletal crews in anticipation of ramping up to full operational levels on a five or ten-day readiness schedule. At a 2017 Congressional House hearing, US Transportation

Command Commander Gen Darren W. McDew stated, “…without the Jones Act, without the Maritime Security Program, without cargo preference, our ability to project forces is in jeopardy.” In testimony to a March 2018 joint hearing of the Readiness, and Seapower and Projection subcommittees of the House Armed Services Committee, Gen McDew stated, “the US flagged commercial fleet is vital to the Joint Force’s ability to accomplish its mission.” He went on to suggest that the Jones Act and cargo preference “are intended to ensure a baseline of ongoing business to support our inter-coastal shipping capacity and maintain a market for US industrial shipyard infrastructure to build, repair, and overhaul US vessels.” 16

| Defense Transportation Journal | JUNE 2018

At this same hearing, Maritime Administrator RADM Mark Buzby (USN, Ret.), stated the Jones Act “is foundational to our merchant marine as it is today. It’s the ships, it’s the mariners, which are critical. And it’s the infrastructure that supports the shipbuilding and ship repair part of the industry and all of the supply chain that has impact on our government shipbuilding programs as well. The costs of all those and the availability of shipbuilders are greatly impacted by that. So [the Jones Act] has far ranging impact.” Administrator Buzby cautioned Congress in the beginning of 2018 that, “while it appears possible to find enough qualified American mariners for an initial four to six months of sealift surge, sustaining safe oper-

ations with qualified crew could be impacted if a sealift surge exceeded six months… surge vessels would require roughly 3,860 mariners for sustained operation. This is in addition to continued operation of much of the privately-owned fleet.” This sense of caution stands to reason given the US flagged fleet in the global trades has gone from 106 large deep-sea vessels in 2012 to just 81 today, and merely 1.5 percent of our international cargo is carried on US flagged ships. Military planners generally agree there is a shortage of some 2,000 mariners, roughly split between licensed officers and credentialed deep-sea crew, needed for ongoing operation and sustainment of the reserve fleet beyond an engagement lasting more than six months.

Aside from the scarcity of US-citizen mariners experienced to operate ocean-going vessels, there are other structural hurdles hampering the development of a sufficient mariner pool in times of national emergency or conflict. Most notably is the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchstanding for Seafarers (STCW) as amended. These marine training and safety requirements have come into full force since January 2017. They mandate more sea-time, classroom training, security documentation (further restricted by US-centric regulations) and demonstrated skill proficiency. This leads to increased costs in time and money for individuals to obtain or retain credentials for a maritime career. Not surprisingly, these directives have further shrunken the pool of available mariners to be employed on deepdraft vessels. It also diminishes the ability of the Department of Homeland Security and US Coast Guard (USCG) to quickly certify new or retired mariners when a sudden manpower surge is needed. Last, for the millennial generation and those following them there is a little famil-

iarity with maritime employment. Containerization and the pace of the global supply chain have changed much of the lionized nature of seafaring. We are way past the vision of adventure gained from “Old Spice” commercials portraying a ruddy and dashing seaman heading up a gangway with a duffel bag on his shoulder.

travel, appreciation for the chain of command, ability to work in dynamic environments, a defined career-ladder, mission orientation, and assignment flexibility that typifies the working life of every service member. Civilian mariners have much greater flexibility as to when they wish to be employed, the type of vessel they sign

Frankly, sea-going employment has much of what military folks appreciate of their service careers, while avoiding much of what they may have disliked. In contrast to many other industrial sectors, maritime provides and values substantial skills training, discipline, travel, appreciation for the chain of command, ability to work in dynamic environments, a defined career-ladder, mission orientation, and assignment flexibility that typifies the working life of every service member. Nonetheless, for veterans or those separating from the service, maritime occupational paths are a profession worth investigating and pursuing.

A surefire bonus is they can avoid billeting with twenty or more of their closest shipmates, as most ships provide each crew member with their own stateroom. Furthermore, when considering a career in the commercial maritime sector, the

use of a military-to-civilian skills translator is not a necessity. What the veteran has reflected on their DD-214 [military discharge form] is of much greater concern to maritime recruiters than how creative one is in writing a resume or whether they are “dressed for success” for an interview. The concept of Military-to-Mariner (M2M) as a value proposition has gained steady and widespread appreciation in recent years. This includes support from

The policy that we have followed for years in the US is that we rely on the commercial US merchant marine to employ and train enough mariners to serve on both those commercial vessels but also to generate a surplus that we use on federal vessels to meet our sealift requirements…the challenge that we have today is that the US commercial fleet is no longer large enough to provide both of those needs. the White House to Congress, corporate boardrooms to labor union halls, top military brass to federal regulators, and beyond. M2M engenders a virtuous circle. By making the transition for those with military experience into the maritime sector less arduous we solve a number of concurrent problems. We are better able to meet industry employment demands for qualified mariners, improve homeland security in our ports and along our waterways by attaining a workforce for which being observant of security issues is second nature, meet military planners concerns for maintaining a reliable and experienced pool of mariners to meet defense/national emergency surge demands of the US merchant marine, reduce unemployment compensation and transfer payments taken directly out of the Pentagon’s and Veterans Affairs’ budgets for dislocated veterans, as well as improve military recruitment, retention, and performance by demonstrating to those considering entering the military the viability of a service career leading to a successful private sector transition upon separation. Moreover, for those who may be uncomfortable reentering the civilian world, the structure and familiarity of sea18

going employment may be a most appropriate fit for many veterans. Discussions of these objectives and development of a strategic response thereof have been held in a number of forums. These include the Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration, the Department of Homeland Security’s USCG National Maritime Center (NMC) and Merchant Personnel Advisory Committee, the US Congress (with hearings and listening sessions conducted by the House Transportation Committee, Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation), the Executive Office of the President, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the industry coalition group American Maritime Partnership (AMP). Through legislation, consensus, concerted initiatives, targeted budgeting and rulemaking tangible achievements have occurred and more are underway. The service member now has less impediments and greater opportunities to find a maritime career as a result. Some of these include the: • Howard Coble Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2014 amended sea-time requirements for uniformed services members to extend the period of qualifying sea service for officers from the previous three years to the previous seven years; • USCG National Maritime Center has enhanced the ability of service members to have their credentialing submissions reviewed by staff who are subject matter experts in military sea service records, providing swifter and improved approval rates; • Army, Navy, and Coast Guard have increasingly submitted more formal courses and training for approval by the NMC and many more courses have been approved for credit towards civilian ratings and officer credentials; • Navy has enhanced their credentialing website, Navy COOL ( mil/usn/index.htm), whereby their members can better access what career opportunities they are eligible for and what gaps in training/sea-time they may need to fill for a civilian maritime position; • Military personnel can attain and be reimbursed for the cost of their Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) and Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC) while in the service;

• USCG Academy graduates now have the opportunity to obtain a domesticonly merchant mariner credential endorsement as a master of less than 100 Gross Tons upon near coastal waters; • USCG is agreeable to accepting military random drug screenings and periodic physical exams when a separating service member applies for their MMC; • USCG has made it more practicable for determining who is a qualified accessor for onboard assessments and for evaluating courses and instructors to meet approval standards; and • Navy and USCG have provided improved access to clarify the M2M process through publication of the following: – blueprint2mariner.pdf and – NMC/pdfs/brochures/Military_ Brochure.pdf Ironically, the US Army’s Maritime Training Division at Fort Eustis is recognized as the military’s gold standard when it comes to military training meeting or exceeding the criteria set by NMC. They are proud to be recognized as the only military branch “schoolhouse” producing mariners who need no additional testing to receive their USCG credentials. A career in maritime is not limited to those who have a sea service enlisted rating or officer designation typically associated with navigation, engineering, or fabrication. Although the military has increasingly sought contractors to provide food services at base installations, Culinary Specialists (CS) ratings from all the services, whether shore-side or onboard a vessel, are welcome to gain some additional basic safety training and specialty galley training. In doing so, they can be working in the steward department on a ship in a matter of weeks. Some MSC assets, in addition to the vessels they manage themselves, are contracted out for management to experienced private sector companies. Often these vessels include required duty positions not organic to the merchant marine. These Navy and USCG positions (or their equivalent in the Air Force or Army) may include Logistics Specialist (LS), Storekeeper (SK), Electronics Technician/Officer (ET/ETO), Medical Department Representative (Professional Nurse, Hospital Corpsman–with independent duty certi-


Careers in Maritime The Military2Maritime career fairs like those pictured provide career information and hiring forums for current, separating, and veteran military personnel who are interested in pursuing a career in the US flag maritime industry—both shipyard and shipboard positions. Additionally, the events give maritime employers the chance to recruit America’s finest for their workforce. Building on the success of the career fairs, the American Maritime Partnership launched the Military to Maritime digital career platform. Like its in-person counterpart, the digital platform was designed to connect veterans with career opportunities in the US shipbuilding and maritime industry, as well as provide training and credentialing information on transitioning from the military service to the maritime sector. More than a job board, this helps to make the transition process smoother for veterans. Connecting mission-focused and qualified veterans and active military with careers in the maritime industry, is a win-win for both maritime companies and those veterans that find careers in this vibrant industry.

fication, and Physician Assistant). Others without these ratings or deck/engine credentials, who are interested in a maritime career are encouraged to seek entry positions through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or Military Sealift Command. Once they have attained a merchant marine rating through these organizations they can look for opportunities through the private sector. In any case, those who have secret clearances would be of particular interest to some MSC contractors who are required to maintain crew with such clearances. Many veterans can use their Montgomery GI Bill benefits towards necessary training/certifications. Those currently in the service can often use the expanded Department of Defense flexibility on tuition assistance to prepare early for a civilian maritime career while still in uniform. Other veterans may also find a path to maritime labor unions who offer career training and employment through their own affiliated schools/apprenticeships. Finally, a new website is presented by the American Maritime Partnership. Building on the success of AMP’s Military

to Maritime career forums held from coast to coast, the new M2M digital career platform seeks to connect veterans with career opportunities in the US shipbuilding a maritime industry along with providing training and credentialing information on transitioning from military service to the maritime sector.

The Department of Transportation’s senior executive, Joel Szabat, has stated, “The policy that we have followed for years in the US is that we rely on the commercial US merchant marine to employ and train enough mariners to serve on both those commercial vessels but also to generate a surplus that we use on federal vessels to meet our sealift requirements… the challenge that we have today is that

the US commercial fleet is no longer large enough to provide both of those needs.” Both the military and the commercial maritime sector are working collaboratively and earnestly to meet both these objectives. In doing so those who seek a post-service career in the civilian maritime community are welcome to enter an industry honoring their commitment and training while affording them a career where they can continue to serve national interests.

We live in an increasingly complex world with growing uncertainty and risk. When natural disasters, epidemics or acts of war occur, the 140,000-strong USTRANSCOM stands ready and capable to answer America’s call. Since its inception in 1987, USTRANSCOM has moved our forces and their equipment to and from the fight around the clock and globe. This total force team of active duty, Guard, Reserve, civilians, commercial transportation partners and other contractors operate a robust joint deployment and distribution enterprise that delivers the nation’s objectives worldwide. USTRANSCOM’s assigned responsibilities as identified in the Unified Command Plan are: • Mobility Joint Force Provider • DOD Single Manager for Transportation • DOD Single Manager for Global Patient Movement • Distribution Process Owner • Global Distribution Synchronizer • Joint Enabling Capabilities Provider The ability to project rapid power anywhere on the planet at any time sets the US apart from the world. As a global combatant command, USTRANSCOM collaborates with world-class transportation providers to enhance the reliability, predictability, and efficiency of transporting DOD materiel wherever and whenever needed. USTRANSCOM executes its mission through three components: 1. The US Army’s Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Com-

mand (SDDC) administers military land transportation and common-user ocean terminals. 2. The US Navy’s Military Sealift Command (MSC) provides strategic sealift supporting deployment and sustainment of military forces worldwide. 3. The US Air Force’s Air Mobility Command (AMC) conducts global airlift, aerial refueling and aeromedical evacuation for military movement requirements in peacetime and in war. In addition, USTRANSCOM’s lone subordinate unit, the Joint Enabling Capabilities Command (JECC), delivers a rapidly deployable, tailored team of experts in plans, operations, knowledge management, intelligence support, logistics, public affairs, and communications to meet joint task force commanders’ needs. USTRANSCOM’s close relationship with the US transportation industry enables DOD to augment organic capability and leverage significant capacity to meet both peacetime and wartime requirements. Commercial carriers provide the majority of operational lift capacity and are essential in sustaining forces around the world. To successfully project America’s power globally, USTRANSCOM addresses all challenges and vulnerabilities to ensure we are ready to deliver an immediate force tonight and a decisive force when needed.

ir Mobility Command (AMC), a major command headquartered at Scott AFB, IL, was created June 1, 1992. AMC provides America’s global reach. This rapid, flexible, and responsive air mobility promotes stability in regions by keeping America’s capability and character highly visible. AMC’s mission is to provide global air mobility . . . right effects, right place, right time. The command enables humanitarian support at home and around the world. Mobility Air Forces Airmen—active duty, Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve, and civilians—provide airlift and aerial refueling for all of America’s armed forces. Many special duty and operational support aircraft and stateside aeromedical evacuation missions are also assigned to AMC. United States forces must be able to provide a rapid, tailored response. A core

competency of mobility air forces is rapid global mobility. This puts the “global” in the Air Force’s global reach, global vigilance and global power. As the US winds down operations first in Iraq and now Afghanistan, AMC provides critical flexibility for US national security. As US Transportation Command’s air component, AMC is the single manager for air mobility. AMC’s mission encompasses nearly 126,000 active-duty and Air Reserve Component military and civilian personnel. The command has one numbered air force, 18th Air Force, which is charged with tasking and executing all air mobility missions. Units reporting to 18th Air Force include all operational AMC wings and groups based in the continental United States. They are key to the execution phase of warfighting, providing worldwide mobility support. The 618th Tanker Airlift Control Center (TACC), located at Scott AFB, also reports to 18th Air Force and serves as the organization’s air operations hub, planning and directing tanker and transport aircraft op-

erations around the world. AMC also has one major direct reporting unit, the USAF Expeditionary Center, located at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, NJ. It oversees air base wings and a contingency response wing, which provides expeditionary mobility support. The USAF Expeditionary Center also serves as the Air Force’s premier organization for expeditionary innovation, education, training, and exercises. AMC’s ability to provide global reach is tested daily. From providing fuel, supplies, and aeromedical support to troops on the front line, to providing humanitarian supplies to hurricane, flood, and earthquake victims both at home and abroad, AMC has been engaged in almost nonstop operations since its inception. Command tankers and airlifters have supported peacekeeping and humanitarian efforts throughout the world and continue to play a vital role today. These many examples of the effective application of non-lethal air power indicate that air mobility is a national asset of growing importance for responding to emergencies, and protecting national interests around the globe. |

logistics deployment capability gaps while simultaneously ensuring fiscal responsibility is maintained throughout the process. Among the important policies being implemented are those that will improve logistics leader development, material readiness, and the Army’s ability to sustain itself in the future. Under fiscal constraints it is necessary to adapt logistics structure, processes, and policies to support the Army’s return to expeditionary operations. It is imperative that logistics innovations are driven to enable agility, effectiveness, and to reduce the cost of doing business. We must be creative, forward thinking, and bold in envisioning how we do business, and how we institute solutions. The impacts of budget reductions—now and those projected in the years to come—present challenges in bringing end strength, readiness, and modernization into balance. Now more than ever, forward-thinking oversight of Army logistics will prove crucial to achieving that balance. We are an Army in constant motion, and the G-4 stands ready to continue supporting our Soldiers, service members, and civilians to shape an even more efficient and effective logistics force.

Protect the Nation’s transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce.

Helping people before, during, and after disasters.




An agile security agency, embodied by a professional workforce, that engages its partners and the American people to outmatch a dynamic threat. CORE VALUES

Integrity. Respect. Commitment.


n the morning of September 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people were killed in a series of coordinated terrorist attacks in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The attacks resulted in the creation of the Transportation Security Administration, designed to prevent similar attacks in the future. Driven by a desire to help our nation, tens of thousands of people joined TSA and committed themselves to strengthening our transportation systems while ensuring the freedom of movement for people and commerce. The Aviation and Transportation Security Act, passed by the 107th Congress and signed on November 19, 2001, established the TSA.

FEMA’s 2018-2022 Strategic Plan creates a shared vision for the field of emergency management and sets an ambitious, yet achievable, path forward to unify and further professionalize emergency management across the country. We invite all of our stakeholders and partners to also adopt these priorities and join us in building a stronger Agency and a more prepared and resilient Nation. This Strategic Plan was developed with input from our external partners—state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector—as well as FEMA employees from offices and directorates across the agency. We listened, and the feedback we received contributed to our Strategic Goals, Strategic Objectives, and overall vision for FEMA over the next five years.

The Strategic Plan sets out three overarching Strategic Goals: • Build a Culture of Preparedness – Every segment of our society, from individual to government, industry to philanthropy, must be encouraged and empowered with the information it needs to prepare for the inevitable impacts of future disasters. • Ready the Nation for Catastrophic Disasters – FEMA will work with its partners across all levels of government to strengthen partnerships and access new sources of scalable capabilities to quickly meet the needs of overwhelming incidents. • Reduce the Complexity of FEMA – FEMA must continue to be responsible stewards of the resources we are entrusted to administer. We must also do everything that we can to leverage data to drive decision-making, and reduce the administrative and bureaucratic burdens that impede impacted individuals and communities from quickly receiving the assistance they need. |

Sustaining Members may have an established brand, but may want to expand networks, increase opportunities for military or government business, or be active in the national committee structure. Sustaining level membership and above is required to participate on NDTA functional committees.

The minds behind the machines. Robotics are the rage, but what does the hype mean to you? Digital labor can empower your workforce, enhance stakeholder engagement, automate workloads, and increase productivity. The big picture: potentially reduce costs, free up millions of labor hours for more mission critical tasks, and ultimately, increase readiness. Augmented security: How cognitive technologies can address the cyber workforce shortage. What can cognitive tech do for your cybersecurity professionals? As the cybersecurity talent shortage continues, adding cognitive technologies into the mix can help automate routine tasks, increase responsiveness, and allow cyber professionals to focus more on tasks requiring human ingenuity. Learn how it could work. The data behind the decisions. Getting trusted data to the right decision makers at the right time is essential to mission support and execution. For more than 100 years, Deloitte has been helping clients make decisions based on trusted data. Learn the latest on how we are enabling informed decisions, allocating resources, and improving operations. The analytics behind the intelligence.

Unified mission and operational system capabilities are the cornerstone for modernization. As the pace of technological innovation accelerates, legacy core systems can’t keep up. People, processes, and operating models have to adapt to the rapidly changing workforce and the fast pace of disruption. Deloitte has a path to harness this changing environment and help you achieve bold outcomes. Smart bases: A key to tomorrow’s fighting force. What does a smart base mean for your people?

Omni Air Transport

Dan Burnstein, CEO • 918-831-3087 • Mike Skow, President • 918-831-3951 • Omni Air Transport was founded in 1983 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as an on-demand FAA Part 135 air charter operator providing air transportation services using corporate aircraft. For 35 years, Omni Air Transport has provided its customers with reliable transportation, competitive pricing, exceptional customer service, and most importantly, safe and secure travel. The company maintains the highest industry standards for safety and quality, holds an ARG/US “Platinum” rating, IS-BAO certification, Wyvern Wingman, and is certified to operate worldwide.

10 Tanker Air Carrier, LLC Rick Hatton, Founder

Dan Burnstein, Chairman John Gould, President Brad Tuttle, Senior Director, Maintenance & Engineering Robert Burrus, Director of Operations Using entirely private capital, 10 Tanker spent five years developing a suppressant tank system for modified DC-IO aircraft to create a modern, jet powered aerial fire-fighting capability that has had a dramatic impact on wildfire suppression efforts. The modification is certified by FAA under a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC). 10 Tanker’s management, maintenance, flight operations, training, and safety programs are endorsed by both the FAA and the OEM (Boeing), and comply with 14 CFR - 137. Now in its thirteenth year of fire suppression operations, 10 Tanker has flown over 3,500 missions on more than 700 fires in 14 US states and two foreign countries. The DC 10’s unparalleled success is due principally to three breakthroughs: • CAPACITY – 9,400 US gallons (35,600 liters) per load – over three times that of conventional tankers – effective line building of up to one mile in length per drop • SPEED/REACH – Jet speed to/from, putting the asset within an hour of fires up to 400 miles distance • COST EFFECTIVENESS – lowest cost per gallon delivered

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Open Online Education – Virtual Classrooms Open to Everyone Irvin Varkonyi, President, SCOPE Consulting

Massive Online Open Course (MOOC)? Have you heard the term? The explosion of online learning has been dramatic with a variety of professional development options to learners of all ages and in all types of professions, as well as those exploring items of personal curiosity. What are MOOC’s? What is massive? • 100? • 1,000? • 10,000? • 100,000?

Free of charge?



ccording to Wikipedia, a MOOC is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials such as filmed lectures, readings, and problem sets, many MOOCs provide interactive user forums to support community interactions among students, professors, and teaching assistants (TAs). MOOCs are a recent and widely researched development in distance education, which were first introduced in 2006 and emerged as a popular mode of learning in 2012.1 Another adaptation, blended courses, supplement MOOC material with faceto-face instruction. Does that mean someone is giving away education that used to be paid for? Yes… sort of. In the freemium (free + premium = freemium) business model the basic product—in this case, the course content—is 126

given away free. And there is a lot of knowledge out there that you can learn entirely for free. However, not all MOOCs are free and/ or there may be add-ons that you can opt to pay for. For instance, there may be fees associated with items considered to be premium services such as certification. Introductory courses and some remedial courses can earn the most fees. These free introductory or “gateway” courses may also help attract new students to follow-on fee-charging classes. But paying some fees may not be such a bad thing. MOOCs have found that a majority of students who pay no fee do not finish their course. Those who paid $30 to $90 were substantially more likely to finish the course. The fee was ostensibly for the company’s identity-verification program, which confirms that they took and passed a course.2 Students may also be able to pay to take a proctored exam to earn transfer

credit at a degree-granting university or for certificates of completion. It may be surprising to learn that you can even earn credit from several Ivy League institutions through this method. Course developers may also make money from their content by charging licensing fees for educational institutions that want to use the material. Even if you had never heard of the term MOOC before, you may have heard of a few of the organizations offering these courses. Some of the better-known MOOC providers are: • Khan Academy – A non-profit educational organization created in 2007 by educator Salman Khan, the organization’s mission is to provide a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere. Khan Academy produces short lectures in the form of YouTube videos, and its website includes supplementary practice exercises and materials for educators. All resources are available to users of the website. • Coursera – Founded in 2012 by Stanford University computer science professors Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller, the pair were inspired by their experiences offering their Stanford courses online and left the university to launch Coursera. Princeton, Stanford, the University of Michigan and the University of Pennsylvania were the first universities to offer content on the platform. Offerings have since expanded to include specializations—collections of courses that build skills in a specific subject—as well as degrees and a workforce development product for businesses and government organizations. • – An online learning platform, Udemy is aimed at professional adults. Unlike academic MOOC programs which are often based on traditional collegiate coursework, Udemy enables users to create an online course, promote it and |


sell it for profit (by charging tuition). Course creators keep 70–85 percent of the proceeds and intellectual property rights. While no Udemy courses are currently credentialed for college credit, some may generate credit towards technical certifications. Udemy students are primarily taking courses as a means of improving job-related skills and the company has made a special effort to attract corporate trainers seeking to create coursework for employees of their company.

work for you. First and foremost, you should be digitally literate to best be able to work in the online environment. As the name suggests, it is often indeed massive enrollment so you should be able to learn well on your own, without much

The value of these online courses is the ability to learn a new skill or gain knowledge on a particular subject, often for free. What about their helpfulness in hiring? While it is unlikely that putting these courses on your resume will be meaningful to a potential employer like more formal methods of education would, as the trend grows that could certainly evolve. The tech world is one arena where your actual skills and knowledge are valued, regardless of how they were learned. There are a few things to consider when determining if the MOOC structure will

assistant or interaction with an instructor. That’s assuming the course even has an instructor—some courses are meant to be self-learning. In addition, with such a large enrollment, the courses are often a one size fits all and may not work for your individual learning needs. You have to set your own goals and to find the time to take courses. Some courses are taken in real-time and some not in real-time so make sure to select whichever works better for your schedule. Once you take a course, you often have to assess for yourself if you met your learn-

ing goals. Which can mean determining whether or not you interpreted the material correctly. Still, you can determine the benefit based on how well you know yourself and the value of learning a subject whether

Students may also be able to pay to take a proctored exam to earn transfer credit at a degree-granting university or for certificates of completion. It may be surprising to learn that you can even earn credit from several Ivy League institutions through this method. or not you decide to earn credit for it. Knowledge is power and does not have to be recognized formally for many of us. Plus, with most classes being free there’s no harm in trying out a course! DTJ

Occasionally there were official military pieces and even some “motivational” messages. (See the paragraph to the left urging troops to remember that even though the Nazis had been defeated, there was much more fighting ahead in the Far East.) There are many more stories to be told about the growth and maturing of NDTA’s media efforts, blogs, print pieces, newsletters, NDTAGrams, and print programs. But now that you know the humble beginnings of our publishing efforts back in 1944, you can appreciate even more the professional results of today’s communications team. Next time—the Korean Conflict Era plus lots of Transportation advances and internal news in NDTA’s story. DTJ
