Exercise White Stallion completes successfully

Exercise White Stallion, which took place in the area of Slovenian Armed Forces’ (SAF) central training area Postojna, was completed successfully.

The aim of the joint training of the Slovenian Armed Forces (SAF) and U.S. Army Europe (USAREUR), the main part of which took place between 1 and 16 March, was to increase the level of competence and interoperability of SAF individuals and units as well as to gain experiences from the cooperation with USAREUR and use best practices to upgrade future training events. The key exercise participants from the SAF included members of the Transportation Platoon and Food Service Squad of the 670th Logistics Regiment, and a team of officers from the Logistics Brigade subordinate units. As secondary participants the exercise includes SAF members from the 1st Brigade (engineering and signals troops, paratroopers, military police, UAVs) and the 430th Naval Division (Explosive Ordnance Disposal Platoon).

The planning, organisation and execution of the joint exercise was in the domain of the Logistics Brigade. The last members of the USAREUR 21st Theater Sustainment Command left Slovenia on 16 March.  A day before that, some 50 of them performed community service in the Lipica Stud Farm as part of the civil-military cooperation activities.
