Visit US Navy Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek and 
NATO Allied Command Transformation in 
Norfolk, VA
As part of JINSA's base visit program we will be visiting US Navy Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek and NATO Allied Command Transformation. Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek is home to the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC), which is responsible for organizing, manning, training, equipping, and sustaining the Navy Expeditionary Combat Force (NECF). As a member of JINSA's delegation, you will observe and engage with Sailors at the NECF, who serve in a variety of expeditionary units that provide unique intelligence and logistics capabilities. 

NATO's Allied Command Transformation fulfills its mission of preserving peace and security of Alliance member states by leading warfare development of military structures, forces and capabilities. NATO strategizes on global security issues, develops capabilities for Allied members to secure their territories, and engages with other powers for stronger global stability.

Mission of JINSA Base Visits

JINSA organizes base visits as part of our outreach efforts to ensure that our leadership understands the work our servicemen and women are doing to keep the U.S. safe and to bring this knowledge back to their communities to advocate for a strong U.S. military. Conversely, we also educate officers and enlisted ranks on the important work JINSA is doing nationally and in their communities.
