The Deputy Commander of Allied Joint Force Command Naples (JFC NAPLES), Lieutenant-General Michael Day, OMM, MSC, CD, visited NATO Allied Maritime Command (MARCOM), meeting with the MARCOM Command Group to discuss coordination of operational activities and areas of common interest.
Lieutenant-General Day was briefed on MARCOM current operations, with emphasis on JFC Naples’ area of operations. The official party had the opportunity to visit MARCOM’s Operations Center and the NATO Shipping Centre (NCS), observing their operations.
With MARCOM’s full operational capability (FOC) certification exercise TRIDENT JEWEL 15 less than two months away, the MARCOM Command Group was particularly interested in Lieutenant General Day’s insights and lessons derived from JFC Naples’ FOC Exercise TRIDENT JUNCTURE14, which took place in November.
Vice Admiral Paulmier, MARCOM Deputy Commander, said:
The visit of Lieutenant General Day was particularly timely and a good opportunity to both introduce our headquarters and objectives, and align our views with the studies in progress within the Alliance.
