U.S. Strategic Command conducts Exercise Global Lightning

By U.S. Strategic Command Public Affairs

U.S. Strategic Command will commence Global Lightning 22 this week in coordination with U.S. Indo Pacific Command. This is an annual command post exercise designed to train Department of Defense forces and assess joint operational readiness across USSTRATCOM mission areas.

Global Lightning is an invaluable training opportunity that tests USSTRATCOM mission areas to enhance readiness and creates the conditions for effective strategic deterrence against a variety of threats. This year’s exercise will provide training opportunities for USSTRATCOM headquarters staff to integrate and synchronize efforts with USINDOPACOM headquarters and its component commands.
