Duty in Djibouti 30 Nov 12

Welcome to another edition of duty in Djibouti. I'm SSgt Sara Weeks. Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Jonathan Greenert visited with Sailors from Camp Lemonnier where he held an All Hands Call to address sailors on future operations of the Navy. The Airmen around camp also received a special visit from USAFE Commander General Philip Breedlove and USAFE Command Chief CMSgt Craig Adams. Listen as they ask Airmen to be a sensor for one another. Now we go to French Beach where a Civil Affairs Team from Camp Lemonnier completes the Basic Sea Survival Train-the-trainer course. And now service members from around the camp have messages for family and friends back home. That's it for this edition of Duty in Djibouti for Combined Joint Task Force Horn of Africa Public Affairs, I'm Staff Sergeant Sara Weeks.
