"The island of Guam is no stranger to war, and exercising on former and, potentially, future battlefields better prepares our forces for the challenges of tomorrow.” - Capt. Oscar Rojas, commanding officer, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group 1
-------------------------------------------------
U.S., Allied Forces Kick Off EOD Exercise Hydracrab

By Petty Officer 2nd Class Kelsey Adams
Commander, Task Force 75

SANTA RITA, Guam (NNS) –Expeditionary forces from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States conducted the opening ceremony for explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) training exercise Hydracrab Aug. 19.

Hydracrab is quadrilateral exercise, conducted by more than 100 Sailors, from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and U.S. naval forces. The purpose of this exercise is to prepare the participating EOD forces to operate as an integrated, capable, and potent allied force, ready to respond to a changing and complex maritime environment in the Indo-Pacific region.

“The operational environment is changing, and the threats continue to increase and become more complex,” said Capt. Oscar Rojas, EOD Group 1 commanding officer. “It is fitting that Hydracrab is to be conducted on Guam. The island of Guam is no stranger to war, and exercising on former and, potentially, future battlefields better prepares our forces for the challenges of tomorrow.”

According to Rojas, Hydracrab will provide the opportunity for all partner nation military forces involved to train and enhance their skills; therefore, ensuring the citizens of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and America will pass their current freedoms they enjoy today onto the next generation.

‘We are very excited to host our foreign partners and friends for the inaugural exercise Hydracrab 2019,” said Cmdr. Andrew Cook, EOD Mobile Unit 5 commanding officer. “This exercise serves as a unique opportunity to share tactics, techniques, and procedures with integrated maritime and air assets that will help increase our collective warfighting effectiveness.”

During the exercise, forces will combine to practice a wide range of expeditionary competencies to include visit, board, search, and seizure (VBSS), land and sea insertion techniques, joint demolition operations, small arms proficiency, counter improvised explosive device (CIED) operations, and anti-terrorism force protection (ATFP) diving operations.

Representing U.S. forces are personnel from EODMU-5, Coastal Riverine Squadron 2, assigned to Coastal Riverine Group 1 Det. Guam, III Marine Expeditionary Forces, 36th Civil Engineering Squadron, and Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25.

U.S. 7th Fleet provides security, alongside allies and partners, throughout a free and open Indo-Pacific. As the U.S. Navy's largest forward-deployed fleet, 7th Fleet operates roughly 50-70 ships and submarines and 140 aircraft with approximately 20,000 Sailors.

U.S., Allied Forces Launch EOD Exercise Hydracrab

From Commander, Task Force 75

SANTA RITA, Guam (NNS) – In a first-of-its-kind event, expeditionary forces from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States, arrived in Guam to conduct explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) training in exercise Hydracrab Aug. 14.

Hydracrab brings together more than 100 Sailors from four Indo-Pacific nations to sharpen skills and strengthen practical cooperation for EOD-related skillsets. The exercise takes place in Guam and around the Marianas Island Range Complex.

“We are very excited to host our foreign partners and friends for the inaugural exercise Hydracrab 2019,” said Cmdr. Andrew Cook, EOD Mobile Unit 5 commanding officer. “This exercise serves as a unique opportunity to share tactics, techniques, and procedures with integrated maritime and air assets that will help increase our collective warfighting effectiveness.”

During the exercise, forces will combine to practice a wide range of expeditionary competencies to include visit, board, search, and seizure (VBSS); land and sea insertion techniques; joint demolition operations; small arms proficiency, counter improvised explosive device (CIED) operations; and anti-terrorism force protection (ATFP) diving operations.

“Cooperation, between our nations’ premier explosive ordnance disposal forces, is paramount to ensuring our readiness to face future conflicts by strengthening partnerships,” said Cook.

Representing Australia are Royal Australian Navy personnel from Clearance Diving Team One and Four. Representing Canada are Royal Canadian Navy personnel from Fleet Diving Unit Pacific. Representing the Republic of New Zealand are Navy personnel from HMNZS Matataua Maritime EOD.

Representing U.S. forces are personnel from EODMU-5; Coastal Riverine Squadron 2, assigned to Coastal Riverine Group 1 Det. Guam; III Marine Expeditionary Forces; the 36th Civil Engineering Squadron, and Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25.

U.S. 7th Fleet Sailors provide security, alongside allies and partners, for a free and open Indo-Pacific. As the U.S. Navy's largest forward-deployed fleet, 7th Fleet operates roughly 50-70 ships and submarines, and 140 aircraft with approximately 20,000 Sailors.

CRS-2, USCGC Kiska arrive in Yap, FSM

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Jasen Moreno-Garcia
Commander, Task Force 75 Public Affairs

COLONIA, Yap – Two Mark VI patrol boats, attached to Coastal Riverine Squadron (CRS) 2, along with the Island-class Patrol Boat U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Kiska (WPB-1336) arrived for a port visit in Colonia, Yap July 3.

This visit allows the Sailors of CRS-2, assigned to Coastal Riverine Group (CRG) 1 Det. Guam, a chance to train with our Coast Guard partners and build upon existing training conducted in Guam and the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI).

“Our Coastal Riverine Sailors will be able to enjoy some much needed down time in Yap, said CRS-2 Patrol Officer Lt. Max Duncan, a native of Ithaca, New York. “We have visited Yap multiple times this year, and were treated with the highest levels of hospitality. We hope to continue strengthening our bilateral relationship with Yap and the rest of the FSM (Federated States of Micronesia). Additionally, the opportunity to work with the U.S. Coast Guard in and around the FSM continues to strengthen our inter-branch relationships and enables us to complete more significant operations in the future.”

During the visit, CRS-2 Sailors delivered basic preventive medical supplies needed by the Yap state first responders.

“During our previous visit to Yap we asked the Yap State police chief if they needed any medical supplies,” said Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Marcus Tschauner, a native of Suffolk, Virginia. “We used this opportunity to bring them the preventive medical supplies they needed. We gave them basic PPE (personal protective equipment), like gloves and face masks, which will allow them to be protected while taking care of emergency patients.”

Yap State Police Chief Daniel G. Ramngen said that he was thankful for the supplies the CRS-2 Sailors gave them, and for the life support training they provided for them during the last visit to Yap.

“The life support training they (CRS-2 Sailors) provided, during the last trip, helped us keep a recent suicide victim alive,” said Ramangen. “I am thankful to the Navy for everything. I hope we can keep this relationship going strong for many years.”

The Mark VI patrol boats are an integral part of the expeditionary forces’ support to U.S. 7th Fleet, supporting a myriad of missions throughout the Indo-Pacific.

Since Navy Expeditionary Forces Command Pacific’s (NEFCPAC) creation in January 2015, expeditionary forces in the CNMI region have become completely integrated into the U.S. 7th Fleet combat readiness scheme, and have built and maintained multinational partnerships that have been providing regional stability and security for more than 70 years.

As an organization, NEFCPAC executes operational command and control of assigned and attached Navy Expeditionary Combat Forces in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations, and serves as the core Navy battle staff for crisis response and major combat operations. They plan and execute coastal riverine, explosive ordnance disposal, diving operations, construction, and Navy expeditionary logistics operations.

NEFCPAC is capable of providing the fleet diverse warfighting capabilities such as coastal riverine support, explosive ordnance disposal, diving, salvage and construction capabilities, as well as expeditionary intelligence and logistics in near-shore waters, littoral regions and inland areas.
