Kentucky National Guard, Djibouti Demining Company train as part of State Partnership Program

Service members from the Kentucky National Guard interact with soldiers from the Djiboutian Demining Company during a practical filed exercise in Djibouti City, Djibouti, on Aug. 24, 2021. The demining unit was established in 2001 to ensure that Djibouti could become mine-free after years of civil war throughout the 1990s, a goal that was achieved in 2003. Eighteen years later, mines remain a threat in the surrounding region.
