"NATO Secretary General visits, praises Georgia National Guard Georgia National Guard report",
CLAY NATIONAL GUARD CENTER, Marietta, Ga. (5/16/11) -
The Georgia National Guard played host to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who took time to honor Georgia Army and Air Guard members for their service with NATO forces in the Global War on Terror, as well as for their work with the nation of Georgia since 1995 through the State Partnership Program, May 9.
[ ... ] "Most of the Soldiers and Airmen in the room have participated in NATO operations in Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan and most recently in support of the alliance in the skies over Libya," said Army Maj. Gen. William T. Nesbitt, Georgia's Adjutant General, before the Secretary General delivered his remarks.
[ ... ] "I know that the motto of the National Guard is 'always ready, always there,' and this has been absolutely true - now and in the past, here in the United States and throughout the world," Rasmussen said. "Whenever, wherever you've been asked to go, you've gone to make sure peace prevailed and nations like Afghanistan never again are the breeding ground for some of the world's deadliest terrorists. Most recently, you've helped with the defense of innocent civilians in Libya against the senseless attacks of the present regime." Rasmussen said he knows the past few years have busy ones for the Georgia Guard - and the National Guard as a whole - and that its operational tempo has remained high throughout that time. He added that he also knows of the toll war takes on Citizen-Soldiers and Airmen - some of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice in the fight against oppression and tyranny - and on their families.
