1. Is she the only Canadian female officer in the TF?
Maybe the question should be - is the "Cpl" the only Canadian NCM or the only Jr NCM. You can't have officers (or Sergeants Major) sharing quarters with lesser classes. That was obvious from a recent incident (discussed in another thread) in which a US Navy officer who was so fearful of the threat from non-commissioned contamination that he objected to being assigned married quarters in the enlisted area.
From the limited info on-line about the Canadian presence in Bahrain, there doesn't seem to be a large contingent.
January 27, 2021 - Commodore Dan Charlebois of the Royal Canadian Navy assumed command of Combined Task Force 150 (CTF 150), during a change of command ceremony held at Naval Support Activity, Bahrain. Commodore Charlebois assumed command from Rear Admiral Sulieman Al Faqeeh of the Royal Saudi Navy.
How many people are deployed?
There are currently seven CAF members on Operation ARTEMIS.
If those seven include the Commodore (and I wouldn't begrudge him an apartment to himself - though they probably have a villa for him) it's what - four appartments.
Or are those numbers separate and distinct from
Counter-terrorism efforts in the Middle East, North Africa and Southwest Asia.
Or are all unhappily living non-co-ed?There are approximately 16 CAF members deployed on Operation FOUNDATION. These personnel serve with a variety of United States headquarters:
- U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) in Tampa
- U.S. Air Forces Central (AFCENT) in Qatar
- U.S. Naval Forces Central (US NAVCENT) in Bahrain
- Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) in Bahrain
- U.S. Army Central (USARCENT) Combined Joint Operations
How did they house the four Canadian females in this photo from early March?
