INNSWORTH, UK - Exercise ARRCADE DRAGON 2016, a one-day Land Command seminar with guests from NATO and British military leadership, is the latest step on the road to NATO Response Force certification for the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps. Held at the Imjin Barracks on 6 October 2016, DRAGON brought together leaders from UK 20 Armoured Brigade, Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), and the NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Spain (the current NRF), giving everyone a chance to discuss lessons learned from this year and add to the plan ahead.
Giving opening remarks, British Lieutenant General Tim Radford, commander of the ARRC, emphasized realism during every training opportunity because "the role of NATO is both real and required.”
Later this month, the servicemen and women from the 21 nations at the ARRC will be putting themselves to the test during exercise TRIDENT JUNCTURE 16, certifying them as the NRF for 2017.
