SASEBO, Japan (May 12, 2017) -- Commander, Navy Installations Command Vice Adm. Mary M. Jackson visited Commander, U.S. Fleet Activities Sasebo May 11. The visit is part of her first regional trip since assuming the duties as CNIC.


Jackson visited CFAS and its tenant commands to familiarize herself with them and understand each command’s characteristics and capabilities. Her tour touched on both the operational aspects of CFAS, which is home to more than a dozen tenants that provide a range of services including ship repair, ammunition and fuel storage, as well as the base’s ability to support its Sailors and their families.


Jackson met with Sailors and civilian personnel throughout the entirety of CFAS, including a waterborne harbor tour and stops at smaller facilities to include the Child Development Center, barracks and chapel.


“I couldn’t be more proud of what I see out on the deckplate every day with our Sailors, our team, our civilians and our families,” said Jackson. “The alliance that we have with Japan is clearly evident with every place I’ve been.”


Jackson says she now has the information to ensure that the Navy is able to continue running shore enterprises to support the warfighters.


Jackson has served in the U.S. Navy since her commissioning in 1989 and is qualified as a joint service officer. She had previously held command of Navy Region Southeast from 2014 until her ascension to CNIC February 23, 2017.


CFAS enables 13 forward-deployed naval forces and 26 tenant commands across 11 geographic locations, supporting a community of 7,000 Sailors, civilians, and family members. It has received awards for Safety, Environmental, Zumwalt Lodging, Golden Anchor, Food Service, and the 2015 Region Japan Installation of the Year.
