Two TRANSCOM Calls (10 Nov)

Please see the combined notes from two calls on 10 Nov: the non-Peak Season call and the TRANSCOM/Service/Industry call.  I’ve requested the slides from both calls, but do not have them presently.  My notes are a combination of notes from both calls, and less specific than normal.  But provide the overall general nature of the calls.
