The Commander, Security Forces Assistance Brigade (SFAB) of the United States Army – Colonel (Col) Michael Sullivan, has led a team from his Brigade to pay a courtesy call on the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) – Major General (Maj Gen) Thomas Oppong-Peprah, at the Army Headquarters, Accra.
The COAS, in receiving the delegation at his offices on Monday, 14 June 2022, noted that, the Ghana Army (GA) has benefitted from its collaboration with the SFAB, in the area of curriculum development for the Ghana Army Peace Operations Training School (APOTS).
The General stated that personnel of GA continue to benefit from training with SFAB, which helps to build capacity for modern peacekeeping, and that one unique feature of the SFAB is their ability to switch from one aspect of training to another, a quality he believes would immensely serve the GA.
Col Sullivan, calling for enhanced collaboration with GA, said he was gratified with the opportunity to work together with GA, to solve problems and provide solutions that work for both Armies, opining that the mutual benefits of the two armies’ collaboration cannot be overemphasized, and that the unique experience the US Army acquires in training with the professional GA, is one that is cherished.
The COAS presented an art portrait of Maj Gen Andrew Rohling – the Commanding General, US Army Southern European Task Force-Africa, to the Defence Attaché at the US Embassy, Accra – Lieutenant Colonel (Lt Col) Daniel Squyres and Miss Dana Furrell – Assistant Defence Attaché, for his personal contributions to training and building of capacity for the GA.
