FRANFORT, Ky., (Sept. 30, 2010) –
Kentucky National Guard Recruiting items were recently presented to the Jordanian National Guard Artillery Commanders in Zarqua, Jordan.
A Kentucky plaque will be on display at the Royal Jordanian Artillery Museum.
Kentucky Army National Guard Operational Warrior Trainers, augmenting the 4th Calvary Brigade, trained and observed the King Talal 3rd Mechanized Brigade during a bilateral command post exercise from July 15 – Aug. 10, at the Jordanian Military Institute.
The OWTs from Kentucky were able to share professional knowledge and enhance the U.S. and Jordanian relations.
Jordan currently has two Army Battalions serving in Afghanistan as strategic partners and allies of the U.S.-Coalition forces.
“As a Kentucky Guard team member working with First Army, I am proud of our unique civilian skill sets and robust reach back capabilities that our Team brings to big Army and to the fight,” said Lt. Col. D. Blake Settle.
