USASAC New Cumberland hosted a delegation from Austria April 25, 2024. Led by Colonel Heinz-Peter Kunzer, Defense Cooperation and Assistant Defense Attache, the Austrian team met with members of the EUCOM/AFRICOM Regional Operations Directorate to discuss their Foreign Military Sales (FMS) portfolio.

They first received a brief on the USASAC mission, and then reviewed their FMS cases with the USASAC team to address the status of several ongoing actions. The engagement created a deeper understanding of the process for the delegation and strengthened the relationship between the partners.
