Tajik and U.S. soldiers conduct an after-action review at a mountain training camp outside of Dushanbe, Tajikistan, April 20, 2018.

Soldiers with the 648th Military Engagement Team, Georgia Army National Guard, have recently concluded a nine-month deployment where they participated in over 50 security cooperation missions and supported 10 combined exercises.

“These efforts built relationships and capacity with our partners in the region to secure improved access, basing and overflight access while increasing interoperability. We look forward to the 157th MET continuing the great momentum of the 648th MET. The National Guard has provided ten METs to USARCENT, forging a strong, mutually beneficial partnership around this mission set,” concluded Col. Kevin Hamm, commander, 648th MET.
