    AMMAN, Jordan – U.S. service members training in Jordan had the opportunity to participate in an Oct. 10 dedication ceremony for an expansion of the Jordan Armed Forces Joint Training Center. The new JTC wing provides service members a modern facility as the U.S. military and the Jordan Armed Forces continue to enhance interoperability by pursuing training opportunities together.
    JTC was built in 2003 to serve as a facility for U.S. and Jordanian soldiers to train on combat and border security skills as part of the Jordan Operational Engagement Program. In 2016 the Jordanian government commissioned the expansion of JTC, to meet the evolving requirements of joint operations. A ground-breaking was held that October.
    Maj. Gen. Andrew Schafer, commanding general of the 28th Infantry Division – whose headquarters battalion is serving as the division headquarters element of Task Force Spartan –said the new center will give service members and partners the facilities needed to be successful. TFS soldiers are among the U.S. personnel who will utilize the new post.
    “This new facility will allow the U.S. military and our Jordan partners to train together and counter malign influences in the region,” Schafer said. “Our allies and partners are key to our overall strength. This training center will allow the U.S. military to build on the great partnership we have with the country of Jordan now and in the future.”
    “As with this new facility, when we modernize and train with new technologies we continue to share to maintain compatibility and cooperation with our Jordan allies,” Schaffer added.
    Schafer commended 28 ID sSoldiers Col. Robert Robinson, Army Forces-Jordan director, and Command Sgt. Maj. Mainiero, Army Forces-Jordan director ARFORand-J command sergeant major, respectively, saying their leadership has resulted in an excellent working relationship with Jordanian leaders on the consolidation of U.S. service members to the brand new training center.
    The new facility was planned and built by Loyalty Support Services, a company that serves the U.S. and Jordanian militaries. Robinson credited LSS and the Jordan Armed Forces (JAF) for ensuring the vision of Jordan’s King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein – for a truly great place for U.S. forces to train – has been achieved.
