GRAFENWOEHR, Germany -- More than 1,900 Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines from 27 countries are here and at five other locations in the world are participating in Exercise Unified Endeavor at the Grafenwoehr Training Area at the U.S. Army Europe's Joint Multinational Training Command in Germany.

Multinational servicemembers are simulating a multi-tiered international military leadership structure similar to the NATO and U.S. military command and control structure in Afghanistan. The exercise runs from March 24 to April 9.
