Brig. Gen. Geraldine George, Deputy Chief of Staff for the Armed Forces of Liberia, confers with Maj. Nick Anderson, Michigan National Guard's Bi-Lateral Affairs Officer for Liberia, at Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center July 25, 2019 during exercise Northern Strike 19. George's visit highlights the shared state partnership program between Liberia and the Michigan National Guard. Northern Strike 19 is a National Guard Bureau-sponsored exercise uniting service members from more than 20 states, multiple service branches and numerous coalition countries during the last two weeks of July 2019 at Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center and the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center, both located in northern Michigan and operated by the Michigan National Guard. The accredited Joint National Training Capability exercise demonstrates the Michigan National Guard's ability to provide accessible, readiness-building opportunities for military units from all service branches to achieve and sustain proficiency in conditioning mission command, air, sea, and ground maneuver integration, together with the synchronization of fires in a joint, multinational, decisive action environment.
