    DIVACA, Slovenia-- U.S. Soldiers and Slovenian armed forces personnel co-hosted a community engagement event June 8, 2019 in Divaca, Slovenia.

    The event showcased both militaries' equipment, vehicles and aircraft and allowed the Slovenian public to ask questions, watch live demonstrations and flyovers, and even try on tactical gear.

    The community day followed the closing of exercise Astral Knight 19, a multinational combined exercise designed to test integrated air and missile defense capabilities.

    “It’s been fulfilling,” said Sgt Mark Lapham, a Patriot Fire Control Enhanced Operator/Maintainer with the 5th Battalion 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment. “It’s nice to know that we are involved in the bigger picture and the bigger scheme of things with other air defenders from other countries.”
