The Indiana National Guard was visited by Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic Lt. Gen. Peter Vojtek during the first week of July in support of the State Partnership Program, a Department of Defense program managed by the National Guard that links states with allied nations to enhance partnership capabilities. The Indiana National Guard has been working with the Slovak Republic for almost 20 years now. On July 3, 2013, Vojtek, along with Indiana Adjutant General Maj. Gen. R. Martin Umbarger, took a tour of Landing Ship Tank 325, which was retired after participating in World War II during D-Day at Normandy.
