(NORFOLK, Va.) -- U.S. Transportation Command's Joint Enabling Capabilities Command is seeking qualified Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps Reserve Component service members for its Joint Planning Support Element headquartered in Norfolk, Va. The JECC's mission recently expanded as the command assumed a new mission in the wake of the disestablishment of the geographic combatant command's Standing Joint Force Headquarters.
The JECC expects an increase in operational tempo and in order to be ready to respond to requests for support, the JECC is seeking additional Reserve Component members for the JPSE.
Reserve Component members will be assigned to a specific deployment team where he or she will be on-call to deploy during a pre-defined period. Establishing an "alert window" provides predictability and flexibility for the Reserve Component service member that most other programs do not offer.
The ideal JPSE Reserve Component service member is a motivated military officer (O-4 to O-6) with a desire to gain experience in joint operational planning during real-world operations. Reserve Component members are fully integrated with active component personnel creating a "total force" unit that deploys together and builds upon each other's areas of expertise for even greater value to the joint force commander.
With about a third of the positions left to fill, this opportunity offers Reserve Component service members the chance to be an integral part of one of the most unique and successful organizations in the DOD.
