Exercise Eager Lion begins in Jordan

The multi-national exercise, which runs June 9-20, began with a press conference in which Maj. Gen. Robert Catalanotti, director of exercises and training for U.S. Central Command, explained how impressed he was with the Jordanian way of running the training.

“We from the United States are following behind our lead, the Jordanians, this year, who have really taken this exercise to a great level after building it over the last four years,” Catalanotti said.

Eager Lion is designed to strengthen military-to-military partnerships and enhance security and stability in the region by responding to realistic, modern-day security scenarios, according to U.S. Central Command. This year’s scenarios will focus on integrated air and missile defense, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, officials said.
