Visit by the German Staff College to JFC Brunssum
Brunssum, The Netherlands – The German National Command and General Staff College, visited Headquarters JFC Brunssum 22 February 2018 to familiarise students with the role, responsibilities, planning processes and current challenges that the headquarters faces.
Commander JFC Brunssum, General Riccardo Marchiò, welcomed the Staff College delegation, recalling his own time at the Hamburg-based College in 1992. General Marchiò informed the students that their visit was an opportunity to learn about the "operational perspective and the JFC Brunssum's contribution to continued NATO evolution."
German Staff College visitors were then briefed on: the Headquarters' lines of effort, particularly its enablement of NATO's Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan; the enhanced Forward Presence deterrence mission in northern Europe; NATO Response Force 2018 (for which JFC Brunssum is the standby command); an ambitious Training and Exercise programme for 2018; and JFC Brunssum's engagement and outreach efforts.
