This contract will allow the U.S. military to maintain our forward presence in this key strategic location and enhance our ability to deter aggression, maintain stability, and ensure free and open access to common domains for the U.S. and its Allies and Partners. I am looking forward to continuing our partnership with DZSP 21 LLC.”
