CJTF-HOA trains to save lives
Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa
U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps service members assigned to the Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA), attended a U.S. Army Combat Lifesaver Course held at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti from Nov. 27 to Dec. 1, 2017.
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.
Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines of Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa, Camp Lemonnier and tenant units shed blood, sweat and tears during the Joint Warrior Competition here, Sept. 9.
In order to keep personnel safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti (CLDJ) and Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA) leadership created and trained a team of service members to disinfect high-usage areas around camp.
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.
