Led by U.S. Army Maj. Donald Dais, 443rd Civil Affairs Battalion Functional Specialty Team Environmental Health officer in charge, the members of Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa and Camp Lemonnier conducted food-handler training, environmental health assessments, as well as tested multiple water sources for chlorine and bacteria levels at Caritas Djibouti – a mission serving humanitarian aid and education mostly to Djiboutian children living on the streets.
Nine U.S. Army Soldiers selected as 1st Battalion, 153rd Infantry Regiment (1-153) “Soldiers of the month” while assigned to the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA) at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, participated in a special AT4 live-fire exercise at a range along the southern coast of the Gulf of Tadjoura, Aug 22.
Medical personnel from Camp Lemonnier visited the Chinese Navy Hospital Ship, Ark Peace, on August 28.
A seemingly contrasting fusion of traits - strength and benevolence - appears to run through the veins of UPDF PSYOP military members.
Members of a congressional delegation (CODEL) traveled to various locations within the CJTF-HOA area of responsibility Aug. 26 to Aug. 30 to meet with U.S. service members and learn more about the U.S. military mission in East Africa.
