CTF 51 Commander Tours USS Essex

Commander Task Force (CTF) 51 Marine Maj. Gen. Carl E. Mundy III visited the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Essex (LHD 2) Feb. 25-26.

While aboard, Mundy met with Essex Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) and 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) leadership and outlined his expectations for the ARG/MEU team during an all-hands call on the flight deck.

Mundy’s task force is responsible for command and control of amphibious forces to include response, assistance and relief in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.

Essex is underway conducting an Amphibious Squadron (PHIBRON)/MEU Integration (PMINT) training exercise, which is designed to bring the ARG/MEU team together for the first time during a deployment cycle.
