    Maritime Expeditionary Security Squadron Eleven (MSRON-11) patrol boat while in the Gulf of Tadjoura,
    Aug. 21, 2021. The Task Group provides port and harbor security, high-value asset protection and
    maritime security operations in coastal waterways of the Gulf of Tadjoura. The Task Group includes the
    MSRON-11 security boat detachment and EOD Platoon 8-2-1, which sweeps the port for explosives as
    needed. Navy Expeditionary Combat Command in Little Creek, Virginia supports both units. 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. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Dereck X. White)
