BLUF: Before throwing away shadow cables, check the list and turn them in despite what the SMR code says.

Mechanics, the Army Shadow team needs your help. They’re running short on some of the cables found in the Shadow system, so they’re asking you to check the list below before you throw any cables away. They need the cables listed below to support the whole Shadow team, regardless of the Source, Maintainability and Recoverability (SMR) code. They cannot wait to change the SMR Codes in the REPAIR PARTS AND SPECIAL TOOLS LIST (RPSTL). If you have any unserviceable Shadow cables that are on this list, please turn them in as soon as possible.

And if you’re turning in 500-meter Fiber Cable Assembly, ensure it’s complete to include the cleaning kit, if possible.

Note from Shadow Team: Units will turn cables in to their supporting Contract Logistic Support (CLS) Window/Log Point. If a unit is not co-located, please contact the Field Service Representative (FSR) Hub Lead to obtain a return label. CLS windows will ship cables to Joint Base Lewis–McChord (JBLM) Log Point and the Log Point will update NON- MISSION Capable (NMC) status in Catalog Ordering Logistics Tracking System (COLTS). Item managers will direct Log Point on shipping instructions to the JBLM Regional Support Center (RSC) for repair induction. (No unit or FSR will ship directly to the RSC, regardless of SMR code).

Thanks for your help, mechanics!
