    Soldiers and Airmen from the Iowa National Guard are in the nation of Kosovo this week as part of a two week exercise being conducted with the Kosovo Security Force.

    Just over fifty Iowa Guard Airman and Soldiers are working with their counterparts in Kosovo as part of the U. S. Military, European Command’s State Partner Program.

    The goal of the partner program, combined with the annual exercise is to work with the Kosovo Security Force in order to train and provide effective response to a large scale crisis. The Iowa National Guard has been working with Kosovo as part of the state partner program since 2011, fostering relationships and building cultural exchange between the two states.

    During the two week exercise Air Guard clinicians from the 185th Air Refueling Wing in Sioux City and the 132nd Wing in Des Moines, Iowa are working in the class room and participating in field training with members of the Kosovo Security Force medical clinic.

    The group also includes members of the Army Guard’s 831st engineering company from Middletown, Iowa who are working with the KSF honing construction skills.

    Iowa and Kosovo hold various events throughout the year as part of the partner program designed to build and maintain regional stability throughout Kosovo and surrounding nations in South-Central Europe.

    The annual exercise dubbed “Eagle 6” is taking place in Kosovo from April 26 to May 14. The goal of both the Iowa Guard and Kosovo Security Force is building continued cooperation and strong relationships.
