From Monday the 1st till Friday the 5th November 2021, NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Greece (NRDC-GR) conducted “GORDIAN BONUS III”, as a preface/BST for Exercise “STEADFAST LEDA 2021”(STLE21).

In this final pre-exercise event, a group of Staff Officers from the Allied Land Command (LANDCOM) participated as Deployable Land Element (DLE), Liaisons from Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC), Joint Forces Training Centre (JFTC), NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance Force (NAGSF), NRDC-ESP, US V Corps, the Senior Mentor for this event, Lieutenant General (Retired) Sandy STORRIE and a number of contractors.

During the same period, there was a visit by the ARRC Chief Joint Fires & Influence Branch (JFIB), Brigadier General (GBR A) Matt BIRCH accompanied by a small delegation, in order to enhance the coordination of the two HQs.

STLE 21 is the main training event for NRDC-GR (and also for the other mentioned HQs) in 2021 and as we get closer to its final phase, we increase our tempo and we are confident about the final outcome!
