MACDILL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – U.S. forces will join Gulf Cooperation Council nations and international partners in Exercise Eagle Resolve, the premier U.S. multilateral exercise within the Arabian Peninsula, in Kuwait, from March 8-31, 2015.

Eagle Resolve 2015 will consist of a weeklong series of simulated “injects” to exercise participants’ ability to respond as a multinational headquarters staff, followed by a series of tactical demonstrations of land, maritime, and air forces from several nations. The exercise ends with a senior leader seminar to foster an environment for commanders to discuss issues of regional interest.

About 3,000 U.S. military personnel – representing U.S. Central Command headquarters and its components – and military representatives from more than a dozen other nations will support the exercise.

This is the Kuwaiti government’s first time hosting this exercise. Qatar hosted Eagle Resolve 2013.
