US Army Africa continental engagements for 2015 underway


11 February 2015 by defenceWeb


US Army Africa is currently hosting an African Land Forces Summit in Senegal - the second engagement of the year with African militaries.


The first was the medical readiness training exercise (Medrete 15-1) in partnership with the Burundian National Defence Force from January 19 to 30.


Last year’s Medrete exercise was held in Lesotho at the Makoanyane Hospital in Maseru in early February.


Medical military personnel from Burundi and the United States took part in the exercise in Bujumbura. The exercise gave US forces the opportunity of training in an “alternatively resources environment, share medical procedures and enhance Burundi’s military healthcare system to deliver effective general surgery and trauma response in support of regional, UN and AU missions” a statement said.


The African Land Forces Summit ended tomorrow and the three day event in Dakar provided a forum for senior land forces leaders from Africa and the US to “solidify relationships, exchange information on topics of mutual interest and encourage co-operation in addressing challenges”.


Major General Darryl A Williams, US Army Africa commanding general, co-hosted the summit on behalf of General Raymond T Odierno, US Army Chief of Staff.
