Dear Admiral Rodriguez,


Thank you to your entire team on the successful execution of the Trident Warrior 05 (TW 05) Risk Reduction Limited Objective Experiment (RR LOE).  Everyone could not be more pleased at the quality of planning, the thoroughness of the execution and the results.  Would like to specifically recognize the outstanding efforts by the event lead, CDR Mark Armstrong and his deputies; Mr. Chris Burns and Mr. Dan Altbaum.


Potential flaws in every major TW 05 initiative area were identified allowing ample time to correct prior to TW 05.  Without the benefit of the RR LOE, any of these could have seriously impacted the event and affected ship readiness.


The true spirit of teamwork forged between our two commands continues to be outstanding; as evident in the planning, execution and analysis of the TW series.   These events are vital to the success of FORCEnet and one of the highest priorities.  Your continued support in this effort is greatly appreciated.
