Commander MARCOM Visits JFC Brunssum
Brunssum, the Netherlands - General Riccardo Marchiò, Commander Allied Joint Force Command Brunssum, welcomed Vice Admiral Clive Johnstone (Allied Maritime Command (MARCOM) Commander) to JFC Brunssum Friday 1st June in order to exchange thoughts on command guidance and philosophy.
The Commanders focused their discussion on strengthening the cohesion of the Alliance through improved intra-command cooperation with the objective to further promote the readiness and adaptability of NATO-assigned forces.
Note: Vice Admiral Johnstone is NATO's principal maritime adviser and has operational command of NATO's Standing Naval Forces. MARCOM is responsible for planning and conducting all NATO maritime operations and has to ensure it is capable, at all times, of contributing to potential maritime operations. Like its land and air counterparts (LANDCOM & AIRCOM), MARCOM answers directly to NATO's Allied Command Operations (ACO).
