Why Italy?

U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Africa (NAVEUR-NAVAF) area of responsibility (AOR) covers approximately half of the Atlantic Ocean, from the Arctic Ocean to the coast of Antarctica; as well as the Adriatic, Baltic, Barents, Black, Caspian, Mediterranean and North Seas. The AOR covers more than 20 million square nautical miles of ocean, touching three continents and encompassing more than 67 percent of the Earth’s coastline, 30 percent of its landmass, and nearly 40 percent of the world’s population. The importance of the US Navy in this area cannot be understated and is critical for maintaining U.S. national security interests in Europe and throughout the world.

Manned with numerous highly specialized technicians the FDRMC Naples staff provides Distance Support and Fleet Technical Assistance to the ships deployed to Mediterranean Sea, while a cadre of maintenance professional provide oversight for Continuous Maintenance Availabilities (CMAVs) on ships and the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense facilities in Romania and Poland.

Unlike many stateside shipyards and regional maintenance centers, FDRMC Naples is a small command with limited billets that enables each employee to test their skills and expand their capabilities. You will be at the tip of the spear, as part of the team that is protecting and defending U.S. maritime interests in the cradle of civilization. We need the best!

FDRMC Naples — We fix ships and take care of our people!
