Coastal Riverine Squadron 8


The Port of Djibouti is a vital resupply location for both the U.S. Navy’s Sixth and Fifth Fleet. 

Vessels transiting in and around the port rely on Coastal Riverine Squadron 8 to protect their passage.

CRS8, comprised of a diverse team of U.S. Navy Reserve sailors deployed to Djibouti in support of Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa, conducts the maritime security operations, day and night, to make sure these vessels stay safe.
