While in the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command / U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations, the amphibious force is trained and equipped to conduct theater security cooperation, maritime security, crisis response and forward naval presence operations to reinforce to the United Statesí commitment to partner nations in the region.
