    The meeting was held in support of Atlantic Resolve, an enduring training exercise between NATO and U.S. forces. The meeting focused on coordinating future training opportunities for U.S. and Polish forces to come together and train in a joint environment.

    After the meeting was conducted, Swint gave Niedzwiedzki, Wojsa and Szulewa a BN coin as a result of the continuous partnership between 2-5 Cav and Polish forces.

    The meeting transitioned from the office to the motor pool where U.S. Soldiers talked to the Polish soldiers about their M1A2 Abrams tanks and M2A3 Bradley Fighting Vehicles. U.S. and Polish forces shared information regarding their equipment capabilities along with stories and experiences.

    The exchange of coins, smiles and handshakes signified the importance of the U.S. and foreign countries taking the opportunity to train as a cohesive unit while establishing good relations across the world.
