U.S. and Trinidad Forces Conduct Joint Combined Exchange Training

Port of Spain: Members of the U.S. Special Operations Command South (SOCSO) and Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force (TTDF) will participate in a month-long Joint Combined Exchange Training (JCET) in the Chaguaramas area, starting June 1. The purpose of this exercise is to share training, knowledge, and operational experience between the two countries’ armed forces. The TTDF and SOCSO conduct this type of training regularly, which allows both nations to improve their military readiness and enhance the mutual interaction between both militaries. The JCET demonstrates the strong partnership between the U.S. and Trinidad and Tobago based on mutual respect and shared interests in the region.
