Noble Partner






WHAT IS NOBLE PARTNER?

Exercise Noble Partner 2017 is a U.S. Army Europe-led exercise hosted at the Vaziani and Camp Norio training areas in Georgia. Armenia, Germany, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Kingdom are also participating.

The goal of Noble Partner 17 is to support the training, evaluation and eventual certification of Georgia’s second light infantry company contribution to the NATO Response Force (NRF) for 2017. Although Georgia is not a member of NATO, it and other NATO partners voluntarily contribute to the NRF.

The exercise affords participating nations an opportunity to train in a multinational environment while enhancing cooperation and interoperability. Leaders at all levels get the chance to exercise staffs in mission planning, command and control, movement and maneuver, and the execution of complex joint and combined operations.
