SAMD expressed sincere appreciation and praise for work the RTC team performed during a mission to Egypt from Feb. 24 to March 7 to support the installation of the Egyptian Air Force's MHUTS.
A letter was presented to the team on behalf of Waldemar Ramirez III, International Program Manager from AMCOM's Security Assistance Management Directorate
