The Region:

Navy Region Europe, Africa, Central (EURAFCENT) oversees nine installations, 11 Cooperative Security Locations (CSLs), two Contingency Locations (CLs), and six U.S. National Support Elements (NSEs) stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Arabian Gulf, and from Northern Europe into Africa. These platforms not only support the Navy, but also joint and Allied operations. The EURAFCENT Area of Responsibility (AOR) encompasses a geographic area that spans across three continents and three Geographic Combatant Commands (COCOMs).

Within these AORs, Region EURAFCENT operationalizes the shore component by providing responsive, agile, and capable power projection platforms through core mission enablers to support our five key shore missions: Air Operations, Port Operations, Security, Public Safety, and Quality of Life.

Navy Region EURAFCENT bases deliver a combat capability through their provision of infrastructure, fuel, water, electricity, family services, and support to meet combatant commanders’ and fleet commanders’ objectives.
