Women in the Military Symposium

The US Embassy in Argentina continues to foster a strong bilateral defense relationship with Argentina. From the 21st to the 25th of August, five members of the Argentine Ministry of Defense – four of them women – traveled to the U.S. to participate in a ‘Women in the Military Symposium’ with the Georgia National Guard, under the auspices of the recently signed State Partnership Program (SPP). Participants discussed how the U.S. is working to integrate women into its military. In addition, the SPP has hosted events principally related to Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief, which focus on military operations and coordination to provide relief and support to those communities affected by a disaster.
