    CTF 75 Participates in Foal Eagle 2016

    BUSAN, Republic of Korea (NNS) – March 7 marked the first time Commander, Task Force (CTF) 75, deployed to Republic of Korea (ROK), in support of Exercise Foal Eagle 2016. CTF 75 is the Navy’s Expeditionary Combat Force within the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations.

    Foal Eagle is a series of joint and combined field training exercises conducted by Combined Forces Command and U.S. Forces Korea components (ground, air, naval, and special operations). Foal Eagle demonstrates the United States’ commitment to the ROK-U.S. Alliance, and enhances the combat readiness, flexibility, and capabilities of the Alliance.

    “We continue to move forward to develop partnerships with the ROK forces,” said CTF 75 Command Master Chief Dennis Polli. “In doing so we learn to train together and fight together.”

    CTF 75 integrated with ROK naval forces to exercise major combat operations during Foal Eagle; implementing operational command and control of several subordinate expeditionary task groups to demonstrate capabilities in major combat operations, and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

    “Overall, the deployment to Korea was a success. It improved our combat effectiveness working alongside our ROK counterparts,” said Capt. Erich Diehl, Commander, Task Force 75. “We learned what a challenge it was to deploy from diverse locations, consolidate here on the peninsula and rapidly integrate into a combined alliance conducting harbor defense, port security, navy construction, expeditionary logistics, diving and salvage, explosive ordnance disposal and mine countermeasure. With teamwork across the board from U.S. and ROK naval forces we were able to deliver the commander’s objectives.”

    CTF 75 serves as the core Navy Expeditionary Force battle staff for crisis response and major combat operations by promoting security, stability and innovative warfighting capabilities to support missions in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
