U.S. Air Force Airmen from the Tennessee Air National Guard and the 435th Contingency Response Group pose alongside Bulgarian air force allies for the kickoff of Falcon Defender 21, a bilateral training exercise at Graf Ignatievo Air Base, Bulgaria. During the exercise, U.S. and Bulgarian forces will conduct force protection and security forces training to build mutual capability and enhance our ability to rapidly deploy to remote locations, ensuring regional stability and security. Participation in multinational exercises such as Falcon Defender 21 enhances our professional relationships and improves overall coordination with allies and partner militaries during times of crisis.
