Latvia honors Michigan National Guard partnership’s past, future with national postage stamp
A new Latvian national postage stamp, unveiled May 3, 2023 by Latvia Post, honors the 30th anniversary of Latvia’s defense cooperation with the Michigan National Guard under the National Guard Bureau’s State Partnership Program (SPP). The SPP has been instrumental in the development of Latvia's defense capability, including the professionalization of Latvia's national guard, medical and engineer cooperation, the establishment of Latvia’s Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) program, multiple combined deployments to Afghanistan, and the certification of Lielvārde Airfield as a fully functioning base for NATO air power (U.S. National Guard photo by 1st Lt.
