U.S. Indo-Pacific Command Hosts the Defense Senior Enlisted Leader Council

U.S. Indo-Pacific Command Public Affairs

U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM) hosted the Defense Senior Enlisted Leader Council (DSELC) in Honolulu, Hawaii, March 4-6, 2024.

The three-day event led by Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman (SEAC) of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Sgt. Maj. Troy Black brought military service and combatant command senior enlisted leaders to Hawaii to visit operational commands around the island and lead discussions centered on warfighting, people, readiness and culture.

The event served as an open forum for senior enlisted leaders to cross-talk and share information affecting the force, including Joint Enlisted Talent Management.  The 18 senior enlisted leaders, representing all of the U.S. Armed Services, including the U.S. Coast Guard, hosted an All-Hands Call on Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam to speak with Hawaii-based service members and address their questions and concerns.

“It was an honor to engage with the enlisted leadership representing INDOPACOM,” said the SEAC. “In this first-of event taking the DSELC out of the National Capital Region, the most senior enlisted leaders of the Joint Force were able to interact and discuss a range of topics from pay and compensation, professional development, education and, most importantly, warfighting and war winning. I am confident that our military and our partner and allied nations are capable, competent, and resolute in deterring aggression. This event is also reassurance that our strategic advantage lies in the enlisted force as well as our officers and continued investment in training, education and particular attention to compensation must remain priorities as we modernize and prepare for great power competition”

During the week, the council members discussed the function of the DSELC, Enlisted Joint Professional Military Education (EJPME), and the Joint Command Senior Enlisted Leader Nominative Process.  The forum maintained a focus on training and education to continue the development of warfighters who will drive this unmatched enlisted community into the future.

“DSELC focuses on the development of the joint warfighter,” said Fleet Master Chief David Isom, Command Senior Enlisted Leader, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command. “Bringing leaders from every combatant command and service to this priority theater reinforces our nations commitment to the Indo-Pacific region. Our ability to seamlessly work together as a joint force, across all domains, with partners and allies, that is our asymmetric advantage.”
