oui la seule explication c´est que tu ne sais pas de quoi tu parles : tout convoi militaire au Royaume se fait guider par la GR et FAR si necessaire.
et ces convois d´AL ne font aucunement exception a la regle,seulement parceque les US ne les prennent pas en photos ne veut pas dire qu´ils sont pas la.

Communications drive the mission forward

301st Public Affairs

Date Posted:05.22.2011

Story by: Pfc. Chalon Hutson

AGADIR, Morocco - There are few areas of operation more vital throughout the military today than communications between command forces and forces in the field of combat.

Certain elements of the Joint Task Force Headquarters in Agadir, Morocco, are responsible for this communication during Exercise African Lion 2011.

The exercise is a U.S. Africa Command-scheduled, U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Africa-conducted, joint and bi-lateral exercise between the Kingdom of Morocco and the United States that involves more than 2,000 U.S. service members and approximately 900 members of the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces, between April 25 and June 18.

“My job is to establish communication between JTF commanders’ headquarters and with his forces, whether they are in Agadir or in Tan-Tan,” said Navy Lt. Jimmie Nelson, a signal officer with the JTF headquarters from Naval Forces Africa out of Maples, Italy, and Magee, Miss., native. “It’s very important, because if you don’t have communication then the commander here… has no way of passing his orders to [service members in the field.]”

The exercise consists of different branches of the U.S. military working together to accomplish the mission. This is beneficial and provides experience similar to a real deployment overseas, according Army Sgt. Jeffrey Thison, also with the JTF communications headquarters and Tampa, Fla., native. In addition, the systems they use throughout Morocco are the best of the best, he said.

“It definitely builds your skill level up,” Thison said. “It’s given me experience. I know the equipment well enough now to teach other [non-commissioned officers] the systems.”

Nelson, a sailor, said he had the opportunity to learn from the Army and Marine Corp, and understand how different branches operate.

“Being able to come out here and understanding the other branches makes a world of difference, because in the past I used to look at the Army at a 10,000 foot level,” Nelson said. “I thought they are just doing the ground mission. But actually the same things the Army is doing the Navy is doing also. We just do it in a different way.”

These service members from the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps continue to work to together to establish communications at the JTF headquarters in Agadir. Nelson hopes this continues to bring new viewpoints to the table.

“Being able to see how they operate brings a new perspective to my thoughts,” he said.

NMCB 74 Builds K-SPAN In Cap Draa

NMCB 74 Builds K-SPAN In Cap Draa Courtesy Photo

Story by: Petty Officer 3rd Class Jonathan Pankau

CAP DRAA, Morocco – Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 74 is building a K-SPAN in Cap Draa, Morocco in support of Exercise African Lion.

The K-SPAN is a rust resistant, weather resistant and fireproof structure built in strategic locations around the world to support the joint mission of the Department of Defense. The K-SPAN NMCB 74 is constructing joins two others already on site in Tan Tan.

“A K-SPAN equipped with electricity, lights, doors, and fans can be built in three weeks to a month depending on the size,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Jack Hoffman, a builder and the NMCB 74 K-SPAN project supervisor. “The foundation was already made for this particular unit. We’re making a few adjustments to the foundation and should be done in a week or two.”

Hoffman said once the foundation is complete, the Ultimate Building Machine (UBM 240) uses rolls of sheet metal to create the panels that form the structure. Seabees then run the panels back through to bend them in the desired shape.

“We are building a Type 1 K-SPAN, or a single arch radius, but others can be built with the UBM 240 that increase the overall size or surface area of the K-SPAN,” Hoffman added.

Once the panels are created, Hoffman said the NMCB 74 Seabees will put up a C-channel to create a starting point for the dome. Hoffman defined C-channels as the anchoring point for the rest of the panels and will eventually be where the end walls are situated.

“Once the first C-channel goes up, we seam the panels together and connect the last C-channel,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Mike Gerty, a utilitiesman and the safety and quality control officer in charge. “The end walls come up, followed by doors, electrical wiring, fans and other finishing touches. After that the K-SPAN is ready for use.”

“This K-SPAN will serve as a training facility for joint exercises and for the Moroccan military,” said Chief Petty Officer Roderick Reeves, a steel worker and the assistant officer in charge for the NMCB 74 Seabees deployed for training. “Training is only one of the many functions of the K-SPAN; however, members from every branch of service benefit from them.”

Reeves said each structure is capable of storing multiple vehicles and equipment and can also be used as a headquarters location or even a place for the troops to relax when not on duty.

“The beauty of a K-SPAN, at least for a small agile force such as the Marine Corps, is having a multi-purpose structure fluidly adaptable to our movements, strategically located in our various areas of global operation,” said Maj. Kenneth White, the executive officer of Combat Logistics Company 44. “As the Department of Defense leans towards joint U.S. military forces consistently working together in the field, K-SPANs become just as essential to the mission as the pre-positioned locations they are built on.”

White outlined scenarios involving military forces responding to a call for disaster relief or a humanitarian assistance mission in which having a K-SPAN already on site would greatly benefit the mission. A location with a K-SPAN fully equipped with electrical wiring, lights, and fans enable deployed forces to quickly set up a command center. Once everything is set up and a generator is hooked up to the site the command center is ready in a few hours.

Reeves said African Lion provides NMCB 74 with a convenient opportunity for training and his crew is motivated to support the joint effort as well as train their newer Seabees. This is Builder Constructionman Ana Serrano’s first time constructing a K-SPAN, and she said she can’t wait to see the finished product.

“Watching something being built by your own hands and the combined experience and teamwork of all the other Seabees here is so gratifying,” said Serrano.

Exercise African Lion 2011 is a cooperative training exercise involving the Moroccan military and the 14th Marine Regiment with the Naval Support Element, Army Task Force 24, and Marine Corps 4th Landing Support Battalion Charlie Company supporting the execution of ship to shore movement of cargo and equipment.

Service members prep for Moroccan mission

301st Public Affairs

Story by: Spc. Cody Campana

CAP DRAA, Morocco - U.S. sailors and Marines maneuvered military equipment from a naval vessel off the coast of Tan-Tan, Morocco, to Cap Draa, Morocco, May 11 in support of Exercise African Lion 2011.

The joint service members’ role was to support African Lion by conducting convoy operations to transfer equipment and supplies to various units after offloading from the vessel.

The service members were supporting Exercise African Lion 2011, a joint and bi-lateral exercise between the Kingdom of Morocco and the United States. More than 2,000 U.S. service members and approximately 900 members of the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces are participating in the exercise between April 25 and June 18.

The exercise is a joint operation between the Army, Navy, Marines and Royal Moroccan Armed Forces that consists of peacekeeping operations, humanitarian civic assistance operations and construction projects.

Before the convoy could begin, sailors and Marines took part in downloading the equipment and supplies from the HSV 2 Swift Naval vessel at the port of Tan-Tan.

“Our mission was to offload equipment from the HSV 2 Swift and then to convoy the equipment to Cap Draa,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Robert Surles, a Spring Hope, N.C., native and heavy equipment operator who serves with the Amphibious Construction Battalion, Detachment 107, out of Raleigh, N.C. “We unloaded Humvees and other equipment in support of Exercise African Lion.”

“After we are finished offloading from the Swift, we will convoy everything we offloaded to other units at Cap Draa. The convoy should take a little more than an hour,” said Surles.

The U.S Marine Corps had the majority of equipment on the vessel; therefore they had the most work to do during the offload.

“The Marines here are boarding the HSV 2 Swift and are offloading their light armor vehicles directly to the port [of Tan-Tan]. They will then become part of the equipment convoy to Cap Draa where they are staying for the duration of the exercise,” said Denver native and Marine reservist 2nd Lt. Michael Dahlstrom, with the 4th Light Armor Reconnaissance Company, out of Riverton, Utah. “The offloading of the equipment is essential in preparing for African Lion,” he said.

After the download of equipment, the joint service members successfully convoyed to Cap Draa and delivered the needed equipment and supplies.

Marines conduct aerial refueling with Moroccan Air Force as part of exercise African Lion 2011

Story by Lance Cpl. Nana DannsaappiahSmall

Date:05.19.2011
Date Posted:05.23.2011 07:34

Location:KENITRA, MA

KENITRA, Morocco – A Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 234 KC-130T Hercules aircraft cruised at 16,000 feet through bright white clouds while pumping hundreds of gallons of fuel through a connecting hose into a Moroccan Borak F-5 fighter jet here May 19 as part of an aerial refueling mission.

The C-130 was refueling the jet as part of African Lion 2011, a bilateral exercise between the Kingdom of Morocco and the U.S. involving more than 2,000 U.S. service members and approximately 900 members of the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces.

“Cleared contact, ready to contact,” VMGR-234 pilot, Capt. Trip Littleton, transmitted into his headset to signal the F-5 100 meters to his rear right flank that the pilot was cleared to maneuver the jet fuel receiving probe into the C-130’s drogue prior to the two aircraft connecting in mid-flight.

Meanwhile, Littleton kept his hands on his controls as he focused on keeping his plane steady and maintaining his air speed.

“I have to keep a level steady platform so they (the F-5 pilot) can maneuver safely into position,” explained Littleton, a Fort Worth, Texas, native.

Matching speeds at approximately 300 knots, the jet and the C-130 connected.

In the cockpit, Sgt. Marc Aldrich, a C-130 flight engineer began flipping switches and turning knobs just above his head upon confirmation of a safe connection. He kept a close eye on several fuel pressure and tank quantity gauges as he offloaded fuel into the jet at 1,000 pounds per minute.

“It’s a balancing act of giving them as much as we can without going below bingo (term used for minimum amount of fuel required to reach destination),” said Aldrich.

Depending on the conditions, fuel transfer time can range anywhere from one minute to five, but the mission isn’t over till the planes disconnect safely. A mishap or improper disengagement could cause serious damage to both aircraft.

“Disconnecting the planes safely is critical because it completes the mission and brings us back home safely,” said Littleton. “The mission isn’t over till we land.”

A Marine Corps Reserve aviation unit based out of Fort Worth, VMGR 234’s primary mission of aerial refueling contributes to the long range capabilities of other aircraft.

“It feels good helping somebody else complete their mission, especially when working with our international allies,” said Littleton.

The Marines of VMGR-234 conducted several aerial refueling missions here with the Moroccans. The missions served to refresh important mission skills and increase the interoperability of the two nations’ military forces.

Exercise African Lion is an annually scheduled, bilateral U.S.-Moroccan exercise. It is the largest exercise within the U.S. Africa Command area of responsibility, and is designed to promote interoperability and mutual understanding of each nation’s military tactics, techniques and procedures. All U.S. forces will return to their home bases in the United States and Europe at the conclusion of the exercise.



Lance Cpl. Juan Vanegas, a KC-130T Hercules aircraft loadmaster from Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 234 and a Dallas native, watches through the aircraft window as the C-130 refuels a Moroccan F-5 jet here May 19. The C-130 was refueling the jet as part of African Lion 2011, a bilateral exercise between the Kingdom of Morocco and the U.S. that involves more than 2,000 U.S. service members and approximately 900 members of the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces.

Joint effort delivers power, supplies to Cap Draa, Morocco, for African Lion 11


3 May 2011 — By Pfc. Chalon Hutson, 301st Public Affairs Detachment


CAP DRAA, Morocco — Different branches of the U.S. military often seem to be in competition with each other; however, at Cap Draa, Morocco, service members from the Army, Navy and Marine Corps are finding ways work together in order to provide training meant to improve skills needed in today’s modern warfare.
Exercise African Lion 11 is a U.S. Africa Command-scheduled, U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Africa-conducted, joint and bi-lateral exercise between the Kingdom of Morocco and the United States that involves more than 2,000 U.S. service members and approximately 900 members of the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces, between April 25 and June 18.
Service members have been working together in various capacities, ranging from transporting equipment overseas, to joint training, to handing out meals, and everything in between.
For example, with participation from soldiers and sailors, the first piece of Army equipment that was transported from Newport News, Va., across the Atlantic Ocean, to the Port of Tan Tan, Morocco, was downloaded and transported to Cap Draa, May 6, according to Army Staff Sgt. Nathan Beckham, a Houston native and movement non-commissioned officer-in-charge for the Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment 24th Battalion, out of Fort Eustis, Va.
A large power generator was downloaded from a boat at the Port of Tan Tan, and then commercially transported an hour away to Cap Draa, where it was downloaded again in order to be used for power for the camp.
“We had approximately 10 to 12 [sailors] out there helping us with the download,” Beckham said. “Having all three in the fight is important; we couldn’t do it without each other.”
The mission was a success and the generator is now being used to provide power throughout Cap Draa. Another example of different military branches working together was the communications system at the camp. Several systems have been set up since the beginning of African Lion, according to Navy Chief Electronics Technician James Willenbrink.
“We brought mobile communication devices [to Cap Draa],” he said.
They set up systems such as an Aridium phone, which is used for communicating over long distances, and an International Maritime Satellite, which is a commercial system, generally used at sea, which uses satellite signals to send phone and fax.
“Whenever you bring in another element it adds another tier to the coordination level, so in some ways it makes it more difficult to coordinate and consolidate the information, especially throughout the information community,” Willenbrink said.
He was happy to work with other service members in order to make the mission successful. He said it gives him optimism for when joint forces have to work in theatre; that they can work together through difficulty.
“That’s why we do these exercises and practice,” said Willenbrink. “When we have to do it for real, we will accomplish the mission.”
