Check out the great work your U.S. Navy expeditionary Sailor are up to.

Exercise Valiant Shield kicked off yesterday off the coast of Guam with Coastal Riverine Squadron 3 using Mark VI patrol boats to participate in a strait-transit exercise with the Navy's only forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) and the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS ANTIETAM (CG 54).

The participating forces are exercising a wide range of capabilities and demonstrating the inherent flexibility of joint forces. The range of capabilities include maritime security operations, anti-submarine and air-defense exercises, amphibious operations, and other elements of complex warfighting.

Several CRG2 squadrons recently completed 2,500 High Value Unit Escort Missions.

What have you done 2,500 of lately?

"The HVU Detachment Sailors that protect them on the water during an escort are a special kind of warrior,” said Ward. “On the one hand they are the Navy's most public facing representatives on our waterways, routinely engaged and communicating with private boaters and local merchant traffic, and on the other hand, they are always ready to spring into action at a moment's notice to place themselves in harm's way in defense of their customer in accordance with the law and use of force."

VIRGINIA BEACH -- Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) held a change of command and retirement ceremony at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story, Sept. 3.

Rear Adm. Joseph DiGuardo Jr., a native of Fallston, Md., relieved Rear Adm. Brian Brakke as commander.

“It has been my privilege and honor to serve as your commander.” said Brakke. “Thank you all for making this a magnificent end to a most excellent Navy adventure!”

Upon assuming command, DiGuardo recognized Brakke’s hard work and leadership at NECC. Diguardo spoke on the legacy of leadership at NECC and of the tradition of expeditionary warfare dating back to the Revolutionary War. He then focused on the importance of looking ahead.

“We have to look at the great power competition that we are in now,” said DiGuardo. “We have to look at how we compete with our adversaries, how we reassure allies, and how we deter the same adversaries in order to ensure we are ready when called upon.”

Prior to arriving at NECC, DiGuardo served as the director of the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Fusion Cell at U.S. Special Operations Command.

NECC forces are globally deployed, providing capability across the full range of military operations in the maritime strategy to include forward presence, maritime security, humanitarian assistance and disaster response, sea control and power projection and deterrence. The forces that comprise NECC include: Naval Construction; Coastal Riverine; Expeditionary Logistics Support; Explosive Ordnance Disposal; Expeditionary Intelligence; and Expeditionary Combat Readiness.

U.S. Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 3 successfully completed a major combat operations and humanitarian aid and disaster relief readiness exercise, consisting of a 48-hour mount-out exercise (MOX) and subsequent 48-hour command post exercise (CPX), Aug. 24-28.

The MOX portion simulates one of the core capabilities of an NMCB: the ability to deploy an 89-person air detachment within 48 hours to support any mission required by a supported commander.

The CPX challenges NMCB-3’s command and control, communications and timely decision making capabilities through real-world scenarios, and ultimately ensures the battalion’s readiness for operating in a distributed environment.

Happy Birthday NAVFAC!

Happy Birthday Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC)! Today we celebrate 178 years of technical, engineering, and acquisition support to the Fleet and the Department of Defense. NAVFAC's predecessor, the Bureau of Naval Yards and Docks, was created in 1842 to execute the design, construction and maintenance of Navy shipyards and other shore stations around the eastern seaboard of the United States. Eventually, the Bureau and its responsibilities would grow into our global enterprise known today as NAVFAC. The present-day support for the NAWS China Lake earthquake recovery efforts, the major repairs at NSB Kings Bay, and rapid engineering and contracting response in the fight against COVID are some of the more recent examples that ensures our Navy is ready to respond to any situation around the globe.
