Joint service members from Camp Lemonnier along with the French military train together in a personnel recovery exercise in Djibouti, Africa.  Training like this enhances the capabilities of U.S. military and coalition forces to play their different and vital roles when recovering isolated personnel across an area that approaches the size of the continental US.  
When we start to do joint exercises like this it’s great to hammer out all the kinks and to figure out what we’re going to expect when we get to the terminal area.  
We can see the different aspects of the different branches of services and what they bring to the table so the more we work with different people the better overall trained we are. 
The ultimate goal in any personnel recovery mission is to return isolated personnel to friendly control as quickly and safely as possible.
There’s always going to be inherent risk in doing what we do but we have the appropriate procedures and precautionary measures in place to allow us to do what we do safely and effectively.
Exercises such as this help enhance joint and coalition interoperability and underscore the importance of personnel recovery around the Horn of Africa.
When our isolated personnel fall into the wrong hands they can be utilized for all sorts of ulterior motives and so it definitely protects our mission out here by keeping our assets  and resources out of the hands of the enemy.
These exercises continue to solidify Joint operations within CJTF-HOA in assisting partner countries to strengthen an increasingly stable and developing East Africa.  For Combined Joint Task Force Horn of Africa Public Affairs, I’m Staff Sergeant Sara Weeks.
