Foreign liaison officers visit USARAF

Six foreign liaison officers from Africa Command visited U.S. Army Africa Jan. 10 to identify potential areas for cooperation, gain an understanding of partner nation objectives and activities, learn from the experience and expertise of Allies and establish relationships.
“This is the first official visit by the group of FLOs. This visit allows us to synchronize our activities in Africa and also develop activities and events for future cooperation,” said Joy Mann, a theater strategy development specialist with USARAF.
The FLOs, representing Belgium, France, Netherlands, Germany, Canada and Italy, facilitate cooperation and a mutual understanding between AFRICOM and African armies. The agenda included an office call with Maj. Gen. Patrick J. Donahue, USARAF commanding general, as well as meetings and briefings with key staff members. An expected outcome of the visit was for FLOs to develop USARAF contacts for future networking and gain an understanding of the USARAF mission.
“It is important to continue to enhance the relationship with the FLOs because it allows us [USARAF] to discuss efforts in Africa and identify potential gaps,” Mann said.
FLOs are military and civilian employees from foreign governments that are certified by a Department of Army component. FLOs assist with programs, projects or agreements of interest to their governments. (U.S. Army Africa photo by Sgt. Terysa M. King)
