SP-MAGTF Crisis Response was task organized and trained to provide U.S. Africa Command with a defensive response capability that can rapidly deploy, over long ranges, to a developing crisis area on the African continent in order to protect U.S. government facilities and personnel abroad. "Our ability to respond to a crisis is tied to our ability to transport Marines where they are needed and that requires Ospreys that are ready to move" said Mastery Gunnery Sgt. Jeffrey Ramsey, the SP-MAGTF Crisis Response VM-22 Osprey Maintenance Chief. "We simply cannot do it without the (aviation) maintenance Marines." (Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl.
