The JECC MRX brings members from multiple commands and different branches of service together to validate the capabilities and expertise of the on-coming Ready JECC Package (RJP) a three-month alert posture fully prepared to support missions across multiple joint operations.
The most recent MRX provided training focused on enhancing the JECC's readiness to support Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Relief (HA/DR) operations in support of the joint task force commander.
Lt. Ian A. Brenner, a NAVSUP Operational Logistics Intern with 4th fleet played a vital role in the planning, execution, and coordination of logistics of the MRX, while leveraging NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Jacksonville's capabilities to support the logistics requirements of HA/DR operations as simulated joint and allied forces respond to a major catastrophe.
"The coordination of logistics is essential to the success of every operation, and the JECC MRX provided a realistic planning process in which NAVSUP can execute to meet the logistics requirements of the HA/DR operation," said Lt. Brenner.
At the conclusion of the MRX, Lt. Brenner briefed Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command, Rear Adm. Sinclair Harris on the logistics planning portion of the HA/DR operation.
The MRX validated the RJP's ability to adapt to joint operational requirements and strengthen ties with likely mission partners.
