DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania – Meeting with senior leaders of the Tanzania Peoples Defence Forces (TPDF), Maj. Gen. William B. Garrett III, echoed messages President Barrack Obama delivered during his trip to Ghana in July.
“President Obama, speaking of a vision for a stronger African future, said ‘America has a responsibility to work with you as a partner to advance this vision, not just with words, but with support that strengthens African capacity,’” Garrett said. “Our role is to help you develop the capacity of your land forces to address security challenges and contribute to regional peace.”
