US, Moroccan Generals launch planning for African Lion 21
Maj. Gen. Andrew Rohling, the U.S. Army Southern European Task Force commanding general and U.S. Army Europe-Africa deputy commanding general, met with Moroccan Gen. Belkhir El Farouk, the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces Southern Zone commander. Both agreed that the African Lion exercise, scheduled for June, represents a chance to show the continued strong strategic partnership between the United States and Morocco, even as both countries face the COVID-19.
African Lion 21 exercise begins with 7,800 troops in Morocco, Tunisia, Senegal
African Lion 21 is a multi-domain, multi-component, and multi-national exercise, which will employ a full array of mission capabilities with the goal to strengthen interoperability among partner nations and enhance the ability to operate in the African theater of operations.
When supporting participants in a military exercise like African Lion 2022, conducted in an austere environment, all activities are made possible by a group like the 311th Expeditionary Sustainment Command.
