SSGT LONG:
Frisian Flag is a multi-national exercise that takes place in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. It strengthens coalition teams and enhances total force integration.
Col George Downs:
Coalition teams are critical to success, we don’t go to war anymore without a coalition in place. And so it’s critical that we continue to maintain these relationships, to improve these relationships; because in future conflicts we will certainly be going to war as a coalition. We’re all unique, we all have a little bit different ways of doing things and so we can learn a lot from our coalition partners by taking part in exercises such as Frisian Flag.
SSGT Long:
This exercise simulates real world events in a safe training environment.
Maj Bart Vandebergh:
Frisian Flag is important because it allows us to train with each other as we would probably operate in an actual coalition mission. So, because we don’t actually train on a daily basis, with this many aircraft, Frisian Flag allows us to actually get that needed training to be able to.
SSgt Long:
Frisian Flag strengthens our alliances and demonstrates the United States commitment to a stable Europe.
Reporting from Leeuwarden, Netherlands, I’m SSgt Rebecca Long.
