Taking place on an old air force base in Słupsk, we are told that Delta and 160th are conducting this training with Poland’s counter-terrorism unit, GROM.  These training exercises are always interesting because we can see the relationships and bridges being built between nations, as well as the sharing of TTP’s as joint learning that occurs. 

Not be be overlooked, a friend mentioned to me recently that the close relationship exists between US and coalition SOF units not simply because these units want to learn and work together but because there is a previous understanding and foreign policy alignment between the elites (political leaders) of the nations involved.  What does this say about our future relationship with Poland and Poland’s place in global politics as we move forward?
