This is my task on deployment.
Currently, I serve as a Staff Officer in the J3, Joint Operations Center (JOC) of the NATO, Multinational Corps North East. I spend my days working with the other Staff Officers in the JOC building a comprehensive picture of the current situation. Twice a week we update the MNC NE Commander on the status of operations and current events in the Area of Operations (AOO). I really enjoy working with the other officers and NCOs in the JOC who each bring a unique perspective and help to create a complete understanding of the current situation. Working in the JOC is challenging and exciting, especially in a multinational environment. Just when you least expect it an incident will occur somewhere in one of the six countries in our AOO that demands our focus and keeps us working for hours until completion.
