AFRICOM Visits ACOTA Training Sites in Burundi and Rwanda

A U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) command team recently visited Africa Contingency Operations Training and Assistance (ACOTA) sites in Burundi and Rwanda. The team visited with U.S. Army mentors and facilitators and assessed the program. ACOTA is a U.S. funded program designed to provide selected African militaries with the technical assistance and equipment necessary for quickly responding to crisis situations. The Rwandan ACOTA program trains soldiers for peacekeeping missions in Darfur, while the program in Burundi focuses on preparing soldiers for peacekeeping operations in Mogadishu. The AFRICOM command team provided a positive assessment of the work done in both countries.
