Service members from the Republic of Armenia, U.S. Army Europe and Africa, and the Kansas National Guard will take part in Exercise Eagle Partner 24 from July 15-24 in Armenia.

The exercise will build on Armenian and U.S. collective ability to conduct peacekeeping operations by performing gunnery and stability training, weapons familiarization, and range management. Conducting this training allows troops from both nations to become familiar with each other's equipment. 

"Over the years, the Kansas National Guard has built a strong cooperative relationship with the Republic of Armenia," said Brig. Gen. Michael Venerdi, Adjutant General of Kansas. "Working side by side with our Armenian partners in exercises such as Eagle Partner strengthens the trust and friendships between our nations and the men and women of our military services."

Eagle Partner is an exercise designed to enhance the longstanding partnership between the U.S. and Armenia by increasing interoperability and readiness. The Kansas National Guard has had a productive partnership with Armenia since 2003, as part of the Department of Defense's State Partnership for Peace Program.
