Story By ENS Cory C. Flament, USS WARRIOR Public Affairs Officer
SASEBO, JAPAN -- Sailors aboard USS Warrior (MCM 10) completed the ship’s Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP) certification Sep. 10-13.

The certification consisted of three consecutive days of ATFP training scenarios in which assessors from Afloat Training Group (ATG) based out of Yokoska, Japan, came aboard the ship and graded the crew's ability to defend against attacks from the land, sea and air.

During the assessment, Sailors were tested on force protection and security alert scenarios which demonstrated how they can protect the ship against threats.

These simulated attacks included a bomb threat, active shooter situation, ship intruder, swimmer attack, and vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices.

"The goal of training and ultimately becoming certified is to build the crew’s knowledge and confidence level to respond in the event of an actual terrorist threat" said Mineman 2nd Class (SW) Nicholas Olsen, a member of the ATFP training team member.

USS Warrior is an Avenger-class mine countermeasures ship forward deployed to Sasebo, Japan. Warrior reports to Mine Countermeasures Squadron Seven and Amphibious Force 7th Fleet.
