This week, in Chantilly, Va., some of the major military leaders from the continent of Africa and from the U.S. Army will convene for the purpose of building relationship and discuss capacity building. The African Land Forces Summit is the first of its kind, but that is not the only historic event of this occasion.
Maj. Gen. Alfrea Claude Nelson-William, chief of defense staff of Sierra Leone, one of the most progressive leaders in any African armed force, appointed Brig. Gen. Kestoria Kabia, the first female general in any armed force in Africa, to be in charge of training, education, recruitment and promotions.
