LT Derek Roncaioli and Logistics Specialist Second Class Petty Officer Alberto Brown are on the ground in Faslane, U.K., integrating with the Royal Navy for exercise planning and port services to ensure all priority cargo reaches the warfighter in support of Exercise Saxon Warrior. Here, they use organic Royal Navy assets from the Joint Tactical Exercise Planning Staff to transport 700lbs of cargo and mail for loading on the USS Truxtun (DDG 103). Logistics support for exercises like Saxon Warrior begins long before the start of the exercise, and NAVSUP FLC Sigonella is there to make it happen. The Enterprise Logistics Response Team (ELRT) is on the ground in the U.K. to support Exercise Saxon Warrior 2017 from several forward logistics sites in the U.K. The U.S. routinely trains its allies and partners to ensure mission readiness and interoperability during high-end warfare.
