U.S. Supports Polish Military Training Center for Peace Support Operations

27 April 2007 


Three CCMR guest faculty members dressed in civilian clothing from left to right are: from the United Kingdom, Mr. Andrew Gleadle; from Sweden, Mr. Robert Nils Olaf Hannebrink; and from Hungary, LTC (Ret) Istvan Kover; together with 30 students representing different land force units located throughout Poland. 

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.
