Slovak Armed Forces cooperate with Indiana National Guard

Indiana National Guard General Robert M. Mitchell paid a six-day visit to Slovakia starting June 20. He met with Defence Ministry State Secretary Jozef Pivarči and was scheduled to visit the air base in Malacky, the Military Academy in Liptovský Mikuláš, the Second Army Corps in Prešov, and the tank brigade in Kežmarok.

General Mitchell and Pivarči discussed the upcoming program for the rapid deployment battalion based in Martin, which will participate in a two-week military training in Indiana in July. In exchange, Slovakia will likely welcome six jet fighters from Indiana in 2000 or 2001, the pilots of which are scheduled to take part in training at some of Slovakia's air bases, the defence officials said.

The exchanges are part of a partnership program between the Slovak Army and the National Guard of Indiana which began in 1994.
