Coming Soon: IMCMEX 13

Yes indeed, another mine countermeasures exercise will be held in the 5th Fleet area of operations.

This defensive exercise focuses on 3 pillars of maritime operations that ensure that safe, free-flowing commerce lanes stay open: Mine countermeasures, maritime infrastructure protection, and maritime security operations.

As the weeks leading to the exercise come to pass, I’ll be adding some feature posts about ships, aircraft, and facilities that play important roles in the exercise, and are a vital part of operations in 5th fleet in general.

For more information about IMCMEX, click on the image to go to a special IMCMEX section of the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command / U.S. 5th Fleet website, or feel free to email the sailors at and they’ll adress your question as best as they can.

See you again soon,
