Senior Defense Official Attends Vital Ammunition Storehouse Handover Ceremony in Tbilisi

Colonel Joseph Bilbo, Senior Defense Official to U.S. Embassy-Tbilisi, presided over a handover ceremony for an ammunition storehouse and ammunition handling and safety equipment funded by the United States Government under the Stockpile Conventional Munitions Assistance (SCMA) subsector of the Humanitarian Mine Action portfolio. The successful completion of this project significantly increases the Georgian Defense Forces’ capability to safely handle and store munitions. The donated equipment and supplies significantly reduce the risk of an Unplanned Explosion of Munitions (UEM) and enhance the safety and security of the site and surrounding local civilian population.
