DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania – The U.S. military, in partnership with the Tanzanian People’s Defense Force and partner nations will conduct Eastern Accord 2016, a command post exercise (CPX) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, July 11-22, 2016.

EA16 is a U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM)-directed and U.S. Army Africa (USARAF)-led combined and joint exercise designed to exercise and assess the capacity and capability of participating staff and forces in peacekeeping operations. Approximately 200 military personnel from 8 participating nations will participate in the annual, combined, joint military exercise.
