Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost, who now leads U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), said she is committed to supporting command and control needs, preserving air mobility and addressing the retirement of naval vessels.
Ovost spoke at the National Defense Transportation Association’s fall meeting about her priorities as USTRANSCOM’s new leader in her first major keynote address since assuming command, USTRANSCOM said Tuesday. The event took place the same day in National Harbor, Maryland.
“TRANSCOM’s mission is enduring and my number one priority remains the same – our warfighting readiness,” Ovost said.
She added that the command will pursue its goal through the elements of global posture, mobility capacity, and global command and control and integration.
