FORT BENNING, Ga. Soldiers at Fort Benning are showcasing their Army training for a group of military leaders from Africa.

Top military officers from more than 30 African nations are visiting the west Georgia Army post Thursday as part of a weeklong summit hosted by the U.S. Army near Washington.

The summit is being held to foster information sharing and cooperation between the U.S. and African militaries.

Fort Benning officials say they've arranged for the visiting group to observe soldiers training in urban operations and live fire exercises. They'll also get a demonstration of the Army's armored Stryker vehicles.



unhappycamper comment: I also suppose these guys will pick up brochures from the School of the Americas.

1. They'll have to rename it
to School of the Americas and Africa.

Their motto should be "exporting repression training the world over"
