With a final swing of the hammer, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Clinton Murray affixed the U.S. Army Europe and Africa crest onto the wooden patch board at the Polish Military Medicine Training Center in Łódź, Poland, on July 27th.

This act added emphasis to the deepening collaboration between the two allies’ military medical teams. Earlier in the morning, Murray, the U.S. Army Europe and Africa Command surgeon, and Dr. Aurelia Ostrowska, the Polish surgeon general, signed a landmark Combat Medicine Interoperability Memorandum of Agreement.

The Combat Medicine Interoperability MOA establishes the scope, principles, and procedures for both nation’s combat medicine professionals to conduct bilateral training activities at two of Poland’s premier military medicine facilities:  The Military Medicine Training Center in Łódź and the Military Institute of Medicine in Warsaw. The goal is to enable U.S. troops stationed in Poland to conduct collaborative training events at these facilities with their Polish partners in order to reinforce cooperation and gain confidence when operating within multinational teams.
