The U.S. Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command is once again moving cargo to Europe in support of the DEFENDER-Europe 21 exercise. A Total-Force team of active-duty, National Guard and Reserve Soldiers, civilians and commercial partners began loading the Military Sealift Command’s U.S. Naval Ship Bob Hope March 24, 2021 in support of Immediate Response, a linked exercise to DEFENDER-Europe 21, at the port of Jacksonville. This is the first of four outbound port missions in support of the exercise for the 841st Transportation Battalion, 597th Transportation Brigade and SDDC headquarters. Kimberly Spinner reports on U.S. Army’s website.
