Force Protection in the Middle East During COVID 19

While the world shut down in 2020, Combined Joint Task Force (CJTF) Operation Inherent Resolve continued to work by, with, and through regional partners to militarily defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, in order to increase regional stability.  Lt. Cmdr. Wencl served as the Force Protection Officer for the CJTF and was responsible for the plans, policies, and leadership initiatives used to protect our military force and allow the CJTF to execute its core functions, even in the face of Covid, asymmetric military threats, and severe natural hazards to defense installations, infrastructure, and troops.
