Benenati, TRADOC deputy chief of staff (right). The UAE delegation included Brig. Gen. Al Mazmi, UAE Defense, Military, Naval and Air Attaché, as well as senior staff from the artillery corps, UAE Doctrine Branch and engineer corps.
During the visit, TRADOC and Army Capabilities Integration Center staff provided the delegation with key information about the TRADOC mission of designing and building the future Army; the ARCIC mission, vision, concepts and capabilities development; the future operational environment and threats; and the missions of the U.S. Army Center for Initial Military Training and the Center for Army Lessons Learned. The UAE and the U.S. have maintained a bilateral relationship throughout the UAE’s four-decade existence as an independent country. The visit enhanced the UAE’s understanding of the U.S. Army; its organization, operations and capabilities in order to operate more effectively in a multinational environment. The visit also strengthened the interoperability potential for both armies. (U.S. Army photo by Charles Winslow)
