The exercise is from Aug. 17-30, 2014. IR 14 is a part of U.S. EUCOM’s joint training and exercise program designed to enhance joint and combined interoperability with allied and partner nations.
IR 14 supports interoperability between the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, Slovenian and Croatian Armed Forces and partnered nations and will help prepare participants to operate successfully in a joint, multinational, interagency, integrated environment.
The primary objective is to prepare participating nations for increased contributions to ongoing and future NATO operations.
