Roberts explained unit’s roles and capabilities of the Georgia National Guard as part of the State Partnership Program. The State Partnership Program links a state’s National Guard with a partner nation’s armed forces to participate in engagements that enhance readiness, promote interoperability and strengthen partnerships. The Georgia National Guard and Argentina have shared a partnership since 2016 under the National Guard State Partnership Program, which complements U.S. Army South’s security cooperation efforts by maintaining enduring relationships with partner nation defense and security forces.
