GRAND BARA DESERT, Djibouti (Sept. 25, 2012) - U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Enrickie Jackson, an exercise participant, calls the Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa, or CJTF-HOA, Joint Operations Center to inform them of an exercise emergency after an accident occurred during Mass Casualty Exercise 12-1 which started in the Grand Bara Desert, Djibouti, Sept. 25, 2012. The exercise followed a fictitious storyline, but called for the employment of real-world assets. While French and U.S. forces conduct frequent combined training events, this was the first exercise of this type between the two nations in Djibouti. The U.S. forces involved are assigned to CJTF-HOA. CJTF-HOA works with coalition partners, such as the French, and with countries in East Africa to promote regional security and stability.
