Georgia on my mind

By Department of the ArmyJuly 14, 2008

Immediate Response 2008, an annual, bilateral security cooperation exercise conducted between U.S. and NATO and coalition partners, is being conducted this month in the Republic of Georgia. It is a long-standing joint chiefs of staff-directed exercise focused on interoperability training and theater security cooperation, and is designed to promote understanding and cooperation between military forces of the United States and its allies. A seven-servicemember team from American Forces Network Europe (AFNE) is conducting live-radio programming and radio/TV news coverage for about 1,000 U.S. Soldiers, Marines and National Guard Soldiers-plus troops from the Georgian, Ukrainian, Azerbaijani and Armenian military services-deployed to the training area. AFNE deployed their Tactical Mobile Radio and Television System to the exercise, their third consecutive Immediate Response exercise, using the tactical broadcasting system.
