CJTF-HOA Commander visits Uganda, attends historic UPDF graduation

Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa commander U.S. Marine Corps Brig. Gen. David Furness gives remarks to a crowd including Uganda People’s Defense Force leadership, staff, as well as students who graduated July 7, 2017, from a two-month engineering course in Jinja, Uganda. The Class 17.2 graduation was historic because it marked the conclusion of the first class where UPDF instructors both ran and taught the entire course, advised by U.S. Marine Corps partners from the Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force-Crisis Response-Africa. The course covered three subjects, including civil engineering, heavy equipment operations and utilities management. (Courtesy photo by Uganda Army Lt. Col. Nelson Aheebwa)
