The 154th Transportation Company (Terminal Service), commonly referred to as the Anchor Team, joined the 4th Transportation Command (TML C) from Okinawa during December 1966.  It was initially assigned to
the 71st Transportation Battalion, Newport, and operated a portion of the terminal facilities. On 25 May 1969, the unit was assigned to the US Army Transportation Battalion,Saigon (Provisional).  It was charged with
the mission of operating three deep draft berths in the commercial port of Saigon, discharging, backloading and clearing general and refrigerated cargo, as well as operating the consolidated MHE maintenance
facility and a dunnage yard. On December 31, 1969, United States Army operations in the port of Saigon were curtailed and on 31 January, after phase-out of the Provisional Battalion, the Anchor Team was again
assigned to the 71st Transportation Battalion, Newport. The 154th Transportation Company is now operating a river barge site at Tay Ninh in support of the 25th Division, supplying personne,l as necessary, to
supervise discharge of USAID cargo and transfer of MASF cargo in the commercial port of Saigon, as well as operating the retrograde yard and vehicle wash facilities at Newport.
