TRIDENT JUNCTURE 15 Opposing Force and the Exercise Design

1 Feb 2016

This article is dedicated to CDR Kenneth (Kenny) Rogers from STRIKFORNATO who passed away shortly after the end of the execution of TRJE15. He was a valuable OPFOR member who provided indispensable expertise to the team. His death has left us shocked and deeply saddened, but it has also reminded us all of how strong our emotional ties have become as a team that embraces our differences—each of us being as unique as our fingerprints. What unifies us is the ambition to provide a challenging environment for the Training Audience to help them achieve their Training Objectives. Kenny, we will always remember you.
