The JTF validation and command post exercise allows U.S. Africa Command to assess the capability of SETAF-AF to establish, organize and operate as a JTF headquarters. Service members and civilian personnel from U.S. Africa Command's service components join U.S. Transportation Command’s Joint Enabling Capabilities Command (JECC), U.S. Army Reserve units, and other inter-agency organizations to set-up and operate a joint task force headquarters during the validation exercise as part of African Lion 2023.
