The Embassy hosted 14 students and staff from the U.S. Army War College based in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. In her remarks to the visiting team, H.E. Amb. Oliver Wonekha said Uganda and the United States have for a long time worked together on a range of issues including regional defense and security, as well as economic prosperity. She said the partnership between the two countries has been helpful in ridding the region of the threat of the Lordí»s Resistance Army (LRA) rebel group and countering terrorism by the Somalia-based al-Shabaab.

The Deputy Chief of Mission, Amb. Alfred Nnam made a presentation on regional security challenges and how Uganda, together with her neighbours, the African Union and the international community, have dealt with them. He said regional initiatives such as the East African Community (EAC), Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) have been instrumental in not only managing conflicts, but also promoting economic interdependence and social prosperity of the people.

The US Army War College was established to educate and develop leaders for service at the strategic level while advancing knowledge in the global application of Land power.
