NORFOLK, Virginia - Leadership
from Joint Force Command Norfolk (JFCNF), NATO's newest operational level
warfighting headquarters, held a working seminar for multinational guests at
Headquarters, Supreme Allied Commander Transformation, on Thursday Jan. 10,
The seminar's focus was to determine the command network and warfighting
narrative of the new command and address JFCNF's ability to synchronize and
integrate joint and combined forces within a designated area of responsibility.
"Today, and throughout the planning process, we have the opportunity to build
JFC Norfolk from the ground up," said Vice Admiral Andrew "Woody" Lewis, JFCNF
Commander. "To make it fit for its time, and fit for its purpose."
In addition to commanding JFCNF, Lewis is commander, U.S. Second Fleet,
established by the U.S. Navy last August.
The commands are distinct, but linked through their mission and shared
trans-Atlantic areas of responsibilities.
