SARAJEVO, Bosnia and Herzegovina — A team from Allied Joint Force Command Naples met with Bosnia and Herzegovina Armed Forces representatives in Sarajevo, Feb. 6 to 9, 2018, as part of an advisory visit.
The team of five servicemembers from JFC Naples was led by French Army Lieutenant Colonel Didier Odet, JFC Naples Base Information Management and Staff Workflow and Management officer.
The purpose of the visit was to support planning and support for upcoming exercises and evaluations as well as to reach agreements on various topics.
