US Air Force builds partner capacity with armed forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Release Number: 040919

Air advisors assigned to the 435th Contingency Response Group at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, along with various subject-matter experts and Total Force Airmen from Ohio and Maryland Air National Guard units, have arrived at Tuzla Air Base, Bosnia and Herzegovina, to conduct interoperability training with their counterparts in the BiH armed forces. Airmen have deployed aboard an Ohio Air National Guard C-130H Hercules aircraft operating out of Ramstein to conduct loadmaster, aerial port and tactical air control training.

The purpose of the training is build partner capacity, improve interoperability with U.S. armed forces, and pave the way for BiH to be a full-fledged member of NATO in the future. This deployment underscores U.S. commitment to partners and allies and to enhancing regional security.
