Joint Task Force Piton [JTF Piton]
JTF Piton deployed to St. Lucia in mid-January 2001, participating in an exercise called New Horizons. The JTF's mission is to exercise its ability to go into a deployed location and perform various construction tasks while also providing humanitarian service to St. Lucia. Joint Task Force Piton constructed a two story barracks at the St. Lucian Coast Guard facility, and refurbishmed the Babonneau Community Center. The projects were completed in the three months. The JTF built a base camp where approximately 100 U.S. Marine, Army and Air Force personnel lived until the projects were finished.
