    MSRON 11 Ends The Deployment On A High Note

    CAMP LEMONNIER, Djibouti (September 30, 2021) U.S. Navy Information Systems Technician 1st Class Nicholas Rieckhoff from, Laguna Beach, Calif., assigned to Maritime Expeditionary Security Squadron 11 (MSRON-11), Commander, Task Group 68.6, stands at attention while getting dirt rubbed across his head during an Expeditionary Warfare (EXW) pinning ceremony on base, Sept. 30, 2021. During the ceremony, a helmet signifying all the warriors who served before is passed along and filled with the following elements: Sand, representing all the beaches we have crossed; dirt, the memory of the Navy’s proud history; saltwater, the reminder of the naval genesis of the sea; and river water, reminding us that the Navy owns the inland waters – together representing the proud accomplishments of U.S. Naval history. Over 95% of the members attached to MSRON-11 earned their EXW pin during their deployment to Camp Lemonnier. 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. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Randi Brown)
