By Meredith March U.S. Army Africa Public Affairs VICENZA, Italy Jul 12, 2019

The U.S. military, in partnership with the Ethiopian National Defense Force and other partner nations, will conduct exercise Justified Accord 2019, a command post and company-level field training exercise, July 15-31, 2019.

JA19 is a U.S. Africa Command-directed and U.S. Army Africa-led exercise designed to enhance the capacity and capability of participating staff and forces in peacekeeping operations in support of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).

Approximately 1,100 military and government personnel from the United States, Ethiopia, and other troop contributing and Western partner nations will participate in the annual, combined, joint military exercise. Ethiopia, a significant contributor of peacekeeping troops to United Nations and African Union peacekeeping missions on the African continent, previously hosted Justified Accord in 2017.

The exercise will include headquarters staff training, land force maneuvers and live-fire demonstration. This exercise will increase interoperability and help participating military forces enhance readiness and the skills required to support peacekeeping operations and promote regional security.

Once the exercise is complete, all exercise participants will return to their home countries and stations.
