Today marks a special day in history. It is the first day of the inaugural African Land Forces Summit (ALFS). Starting at 530 pm EST, US Army Africa will broadcast the event live through Ustream.
Forty-four nations from the continent of Africa have been invited to convene with the top generals in the United States Army to build and strengthen relationships between the two continents. This year’s inaugural ALFS marks the start of an ongoing conversation that is part of a biennial summit that will alternate between the U.S.A. and Africa.
Tonight, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, Gen. George W. Casey, will kick off the conference with his opening address at 530 PM EST.
Join us as we begin what promises to be an exciting and thought provoking week.
