Col. Jay Bartholomees, who is in charge of training and resources at USARPAC, stated in an interview that “we wanted to figure out a way to bring forces, small forces, into the Pacific Island chains in Oceania that would meet the needs of those nations and be able to engage where, in some cases, there’s a military, in some cases there is not.” The small teams will be a two-man job consisting of a civil affairs officer and a noncommissioned officer. Because of the corona-virus protocol for most islands, military personnel must take multiple COVID tests as well as spend weeks quarantining before being exposed to the island populations. From reports of teams already deployed, Defender 2020 has already proved to be successful in places such as Palau. Defender Pacific 2021 will test the military’s strategic deployment across multiple components.
