U.S. Supports Polish Military Training Center for Peace Support Operations
27 April 2007
Faculty from the Center for Civil-Military Relations (CCMR) at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School conducted a “United Nations Logistics” course April 23-27 at the Polish Military Training Center for Peace Support Operations in Kielce, Poland. The goal of the course was to understand the strategic context in which peace operations occur and the associated challenges. The students gained practical experience in addressing key logistics issues associated with a national unit entering and conducting a modern peace operation. Since 1998, Poland has received $1.5 million from the U.S. Government under the Enhanced International Peacekeeping Capabilities (EIPC) Program for the Kielce Military Training Center for Peace Support Operations. EPIC is used to enhance professional military education, training and doctrine programs. CCMR has been the lead agent for development and implementation of this program.
