Two hundred students from the United Kingdom's Intermediate Command and Staff College (Land) are at Fort Leavenworth for a two-week exercise. Exercise Eagle Owl kicked off March 1 at the U.S. Army's Command and General Staff College and concludes March 12.

"It is, without a doubt, the highlight of our course," said Brigadier Paul Nanson, director of the exercise for the United Kingdom. "It's a historic event but its value has not changed," added Col. John Allred, his U.S. counterpart. "If anything it's more important because of the close coordination between coalition countries on today's battlefields," he added. Nanson agrees with that assessment, "as the U.K. concludes combat operations in Afghanistan it's important to build on the links forged in Afghanistan and Iraq. Future operations are likely to involve similar coalitions." Allred added "we have been warfighting partners in all major conflicts. It's important for them to understanding where we are coming from." Click here to read the story at Army.mil
