Erbil, Iraq – For the Soldiers of Task Force Strike’s signal section, ensuring redundant and reliable communications is their way of life. Establishing mission command – previously known as command and control – and maintaining it, is the purview of these Soldiers. Though sometimes forgotten about until a communication issue arises, their mission never pauses.

“The number one thing with any team being successful is communication,” said 1st Lt. Kalapu Fasavalu, platoon leader in Company C, 39th Brigade Engineer Battalion, Task Force Strike, from Long Beach, California. “Especially to talk to our guys all over Iraq. The Brigade doesn’t communicate with anyone if the systems are down.”

Spc. Sean Luoma, a systems operator/maintainer in Company C, 39th Brigade Engineer Battalion, Task Force Strike, checks his satellite communications equipment, May 20, 2016, in Erbil, Iraq. Luoma and other signal Soldiers deployed with Task Force Strike to ensure the more than 1,300 personnel of the Task Force can communicate throughout their area of Operations. (1st Lt.
