    DJIBOUTI CITY, Djibouti (August 17, 2021) U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Nandram Shiwnath, from Sarver, Penn., assigned to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers 377th Engineer Vertical Construction Company, assist team members out of the water during the French Desert Commando Course prequalification assessment at the French Base, Djibouti, Aug. 17, 2021. The French Desert Commando Course is a multi-day course that challenges both U.S. and French service members by challenging participants physically and mentally through land and water obstacles, combat scenarios, and extreme endurance exercises while surviving in austere field conditions. Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti (CLDJ) serves as an expeditionary base for U.S. military forces providing support to ships, aircraft, and personnel that ensure security throughout Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia. CLDJ enables maritime and combat operations in the Horn of Africa while fostering positive U.S.-Africa relations. The base is also home to Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa, which works with partner nations, coalition forces and interagency/intergovernmental organizations to achieve a unified effort in East Africa.
