POMCUS section - Armored personnel carriers.
From the early 1960s through the 1980s, USAREUR had gradually built up pre-positioned equipment and supplies, or POMCUS, for U.S.-based divisions that would quickly reinforce NATO forces, including V and VII Corps, in case of Warsaw Pact attack. These stocks, together with theater reserve stocks, were called war reserve stocks. POMCUS equipment could supply six divisions, plus their support troops.
