MACDILL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – U.S. forces will join Gulf Cooperation Council nations in Exercise Eagle Resolve, the premiere U.S. multilateral exercise in Kuwait, from Mar. 19– Apr 19, 2017. Eagle Resolve 2017 will consist of a week-long 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 1,000 U.S. military personnel – representing U.S. Central Command headquarters and its components – will support the exercise. Other participants include United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Peninsula Shield Forces. Kuwaiti ministries, institutions, and governmental agencies are also participating. This is the Kuwaiti Government’s second time hosting this exercise. Kuwait hosted Eagle Resolve 2015; the first iteration was held in Tampa in 1999. Military engagements such as this build trust, strengthen partnerships, and enhance capabilities. For more information, contact U.S. Central Command at (813) 529-0220.
