From Admiral James Stavridis at EUCOM: The Naples visit, where I interacted with both groups of hard-working professionals – NATO and U.S. – is a good example of that. Some of the issues that touch both commands are operational planning, Afghanistan, engagement with Russia, the “high North,” cyber activities, logistics, infrastructure in Europe, and many others . . .
Our eyes turn now to the unfolding events in Afghanistan. I am humbled by and deeply grateful for all the servicemen and women who are working diligently to provide security to the Afghan people, and deeply saddened by our losses. I will be watching closely, as I know you will be. (photo: Gary Keen/DoD)
