On 13 February 2019, the JALLC received the visit of Rear Admiral Guy Robinson OBE, Deputy Commander of Naval Striking and Support Forces NATO (STRIKFORNATO), and staff. The aim of the visit was for the STRIKFORNATO staff to gain situation awareness of the JALLC’s role as NATO’s Lead Agent for Lessons Learned, to present STRIKFORNATO to the JALLC and to explore the possibility of cooperation between the two.

Rear Admiral Guy Robinson, Brigadier General Jason Bohm and Brigadier General Andres Gacio had an office call with the JALLC Commander, debating NATO’s upcoming 70th Anniversary and the future relation of the two headquarters.

After the office call, the two staffs attended briefings on the JALLC and STRIKFORNATO. There, the ground for the future was laid out for the two NATO entities to cooperate and continuously transform and modernize processes, forces, and capabilities.

Rear Admiral Guy Robinson departed highlighting his hope that the visit “… is the start to a very fruitful relationship with our fellow headquarters in Lisbon.”
