As an Air Force Officer, I never thought that I would be coordinating with the Sierra Leone Navy to arrange naval training in a Gulf of Guinea exercise! Being born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the link between Nova Scotia and Sierra Leone’s history made coordinating the NEPTUNE TRIDENT exercise extra special.

I am looking forward to going on my first deployment, it will give me a chance to learn more and improve as an operator and to travel to regions I have never seen or experienced before, while also training with the naval groups there.

My experience of NEPTUNE TRIDENT is very limited. However, I look forward to meeting personnel from other Navies and having the opportunity to work alongside them and impart my experiences and knowledge to help better their naval forces.
