By Capt. Bryant Wine Georgia National Guard

Jorge Martín Arturo Argüello, the Argentine ambassador to the U.S., visited the Marietta-based 4th Civil Support Team, 201st Regional Support Group, Georgia Army National Guard headquarters at Clay National Guard Center Oct. 19.
 

Army Lt. Col. Samuel Roberts, the unit's commander, explained the unit’s roles and capabilities of the Georgia National Guard as part of the State Partnership Program. The State Partnership Program links a state’s National Guard with a partner nation’s armed forces to participate in engagements that enhance readiness, promote interoperability and strengthen partnerships.

The Georgia National Guard and Argentina have shared a partnership since 2016 under the National Guard State Partnership Program, which complements U.S. Army South’s security cooperation efforts by maintaining enduring relationships with partner nation defense and security forces.
