CJTF-HOA hosts US, Japanese Ambassadors to Djibouti
Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa
U.S. Embassy representatives from eight East African nations joined military leaders from U.S. Africa Command and Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa at Camp Lemonnier Jan. 24, for the 2017 East Africa Security Synchronization Conference.
U.S. military and Department of State representatives assembled at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, for the annual East Africa Security Synchronization Conference to synchronize and prioritize activities in East Africa.
CJTF-HOA works alongside and builds partnerships with our U.S. and international partners to improve security and stabilization in East Africa. The U.S. and Japanese ambassadors to Djibouti visited Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti and discussed this strong partnership with our Deputy Commanding General, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. William Zana.
Within hours of being notified, CJTF-HOA’s East Africa Response Force prepared dozens of Soldiers and tons of supplies for takeoff during an emergency response exercise, validating the EARF’s rapid response capabilities.
The U.S. Marine Corps is arguably one of the most revered institutions within the U.S. Department of Defense. So, when Combined Task Force – Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA) leadership recently welcomed members of the Djibouti Armed Forces (FAD) into the U.S. Marine Corps Corporals Course, it was a distinct honor.
