Q-n: Question about the purpose of the event

DCM Elizabeth Rood: Today’s exercise is proof that the United States remains very committed to our strategic partnership with Georgia and we are proud of that partnership.  The United States’ and Georgia’s armed forces have been cooperating together for many years and we are very proud that our partnership with Georgia is visible around the world.  One example of this is the fact that Georgia has contributed per capita more troops to the Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan than any other ally or partner.
