A delegation of three members of the United States Armed Forces paid a visit to the NATO Mountain Warfare Centre of Excellence (NATO MW COE) on the 12th March, 2018. During the visit possibilities for future cooperation and possible partnership in the organisation of a mountain training event were discussed in order to test tactics, doctrines, and standards that the NATO MW COE and the US Army Mountain Warfare School (US AMWS) are working on.
During the visit, the NATO MW COE’s Chief of Staff, COL Alberto Zamboni, focused specially on the purpose and special position of the NATO MW COE within NATO, as well as within the Mountain Warfare community of interest.
The delegation has been introduced to ongoing NATO MW COE tasks, and also planned activities in the field of Training and Education in 2018.
Mutual understanding, and the link-up for future collaboration, was settled, in order to support and complement each other, and to enhance the Mountain Warfare interoperability within NATO and the Partner nations.
The visit also strengthens the excellent relations between the US AMWS and the NATO MW COE.
