U.S. and Philippine Armies Refine Skills during SALAKNIB Practical Exercise

| U.S. Embassy in the Philippines | Nov. 28, 2017

MANILA, Philippines -- U.S. Army soldiers and their Philippine Army (PA) counterparts conducted SALAKNIB from November 16 to 27, 2017 in Luzon, Philippines. Together, the allied forces participated in subject matter expert exchanges and practical exercises to share information, and further reinforce our illustrious, decades-long military partnership.

The American and Filipino soldiers shared information such as gunnery procedures and maintenance for the M113 Armored Personnel Carrier, artillery tactics and processes, as well as study and validation of the PA Sustainment Functional Concept Document, which establishes a common framework to guide developments for sustaining future Army operations.

The Philippine soldiers then fired Artillery and M113 Gunnery to demonstrate their newly burnished skills.

These exchanges of information and practical exercises serve as a foundation for future training, including SALAKNIB Part B in April 2018 and culminating with BALIKATAN in May 2018.
