Garuda Shield Ex. 2013, US Army and TNI-AD
« on: June 12, 2013, 09:50:35 PM »
U.S. Army and TNI conduct annual Garuda Shield exercise to promote regional peace and security
http://jakarta.usembassy.gov/embnews_06132011.html
From June 10 – 22, 2011, U.S. Army personnel based at Fort Shafter, Hawaii will be participating in the bilateral Garuda Shield exercise with the Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI) in Bogor, Indonesia.  Garuda Shield aims to promote regional peace and security in Southeast Asia.

Garuda Shield 2011 will consist of a command post exercise, a field training exercise, and a humanitarian civic assistance project.  This year’s event marks the fifth anniversary of Garuda Shield, which has become a significant and highly productive regional training event.

“Garuda Shield demonstrates again, our commitment to regional security in the Pacific theater, and shows how our soldiers are flexible and engaged where we need to be,” Lt. Gen. Frank Wiercinski, Commanding General, U.S. Army, Pacific said.

The command post exercise will focus on team-building efforts to resolve complex security situations.  During the field training exercise, the two militaries will train on ways to counter Improvised Explosives Devices (IEDs), and U.S. soldiers will train approximately 240 of their Indonesian counterparts on how to identify and react to potentially hazardous situations.  The humanitarian civic assistance program will include construction of a large, modern community center and public market.

In an effort to develop stronger person-to-person ties between our two militaries, U.S. and Indonesian soldiers will compete in sporting events and participate in cultural activities.

Garuda Shield is another example of the United States and Indonesia working together for mutual benefit in support of the Comprehensive Partnership between our two countries.

Those Indonesian made vests and helmets seems custom-fit for Filipino body sizes. Looks nice too.

Dang i really envy TNI  :nuts:
''Hatred of war is good. It is sane and it is healthy. But fear of war is not so good,for FEAR OF WAR PARALYZES THE WILL,and no policy that is based upon fear,no policy which makes an appeal to fear,can be a policy that this country should follow.'' -- Former British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden

''The enemy expects that, once his tanks have broken through, they will find no resistance. He believes that we will be so disconcerted by his material superiority that we will let things take their course, without caring how they turn out. We must prove the enemy’s hopes wrong.'' --Joseph Goebbels

Fear is for the weak. --DTK

Nations always must be ready for war if they are to survive.

Wow TNI custom made vests and gadgets even those helmets and the goggles.. The BDU are more modern in design. Hope the AFP can tell this to our local builders here in the PH since we created our own BDUs as well. Our PA camouflage were already great only to make more enhancements and create vests in parallel to our camo settings as well our own camo boots.. Astig ng TNI! :thumbsup:
