Sustaining Navy Expeditionary Combat Forces
The mission of Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) is to organize, man, train, equip, and sustain Navy Expeditionary Combat Forces (NECF) to execute combat, combat support, and combat service support missions across the full spectrum of naval, joint and combined operations that enable access from the sea and freedom of action through the sea-to-shore and inland operating environments.
The NECF is comprised of Sailors skilled in the diverse set of specialized capabilities. These expeditionary Sailors support the U.S. Navy while serving as members of the Maritime Expeditionary Security Force, Naval Construction Force, Explosive Ordnance Disposal, diving and salvage units, and expeditionary intelligence and logistics units.
The NECF is postured to anticipate and rapidly respond to the changing security environment. The NECF’s warfighting capabilities as a whole are greater than the sum of its individual parts, and we ensure the integrated naval force continues to dominate on the high seas and across the littorals in an era of Great Power Competition. NECC ensures the NECF is manned, trained, and equipped to clear, secure, build, and protect critical assets and waterways in order to execute full spectrum military operations in support of the Fleet and Joint Force.
