U.S. European Command (EUCOM), J4 Deployment and Distribution Operations Center got of to a great start at the 2009 Coalition Movement Conference. Brigadier General Mate Ostović, Commander, Croatian Armed Forces Support Command, set the stage with his opening remarks and warmly received the participants. The General commented, “Conferences like this one are very important for gaining common knowledge and understanding of important issues that we all face in our work. Whenever friends and allies get together, great opportunities arise.” With that comment the conference proceeded with a great exchange of information on how we at EUCOM, along with CENTCOM, and TRANSCOM, can communicate and work better to improve the Coalition Partners Deployment and Re-deployment program for NATO and 18 Coalition Partner Nations.
