Mike Terilli, RES ’19
I am currently the Manager/Civilian Deputy, Area Support Group-Poland (ASG-Poland). We’re a new organization, only about a year old and still building up the authorized team of 45 Department of the Army Civilians (DAC) and 9 Active Duty Operations Support (ADOS) Soldiers and Guard/Reserve Component Soldiers on 1-year active duty orders. We are basically the only active duty garrison-type organization in Poland, supporting the 1st Infantry Division (Forward) and other U.S. Forces stationed or rotating through here in support of Atlantic Resolve. Upon the issuance of a series of COVID-19 related Operational Orders, ASG-Poland became a stop-gap prime supplier of Class VIII (Medical Supplies) to the entire theater until such time as the regular supply chain could catch up. Using various emergency procurement mechanisms, ASG-Poland was able to obtain various CLASS VIII and other needed Items, then immediately turned over the supplies to 1ID (Fwd) Division Surgeon and the 652nd Regional Support Group (a Reserve Component HQs) for accurate distribution based on assessments of need at specified Forward Operating Sites (FOSs). Soldiers were essential in executing this medical supply distribution mission. There is no U.S. Army Installation Command (IMCOM) presence in Poland, so we’re it. We are assigned to the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, Kaiserslautern, Germany. The Army rotational units, serving on 9-month tours, are primarily stationed at 11 FOSs throughout Poland. Besides our coordination and support to these units, we also coordinate our actions with the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw, Polish Army Garrison Commanders, local Polish governments/law enforcement officials, American and European contractors, and various U.S. Forces command elements in Europe.
