Your Power Phrase of the Day: Turbo Activation

This is a nice exercise, but what I would really like to see are the results of it. Via gCaptain;
The U.S. Department of Defense has ordered large-scale turbo activation of ships in the U.S. Maritime Administration’s (MARAD) Ready Reserve Force fleet.

The turbo activation is part of a large-scale activation exercise ordered by the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) on September 16. The activation calls for a total of 28 RRF fleet vessels to transition from reduced operating status to fully crewed and full operating status within 5-days. Activations are commonly followed by immediate sea trials.

The last turbo activation exercise was directed by Military Sealift Command in July when it ordered three to get underway with just five days notice from their berths in Alameda, California.

Going from 3 to 28 is a big jump ... but these exercises are excellent and should be thorough in their evaluation.

Of course, in Salamanderland we would follow up with a REFORGEResque exercise - but I'll take what I can get.
