Governor Eric Greitens says the Missouri National Guard will participate in training exercises with Israeli troops who are part of a special command focused on civilian protection. Greitens announced Friday that the National Guard will form a partnership with the Israeli Home Front Command, which provides civilian protection during wars and times of crisis in Israel and other countries. The partnership means the two groups will participate in joint training exercises.
Greitens added that Missouri is a good fit for the partnership because of the Guard’s experience in responding to natural disasters and chemical threats. You’ll remember that in November of 2017 Greitens visited Israel on a trade mission.
