Jackal Stone 2017 Exercise in BiH

Members of the U.S. military will begin arriving in June in Bosnia and Herzegovina in preparation for Exercise Jackal Stone 2017. Jackal Stone is part of the U.S. European Command’s Joint Training and Exercise Program, which is designed to enhance joint, combined interoperability with Allied and partner nations.

Jackal Stone 2017 is a bilateral exercise using a realistic threat scenario to develop interoperability among U.S. security forces and their BiH counterparts. The exercise will help to prepare participants to operate successfully in a joint and combined environment with host-nation support from civil and governmental agencies.

Jackal Stone has been coordinated over the course of the last year and will take place throughout the month of June. All maneuvers and events have been coordinated with public safety officials throughout the towns and cities across Bosnia and Herzegovina hosting the training. The exercise scenario was designed to portray relevant security challenges, but is not connected to any real-world events.

The United States joins our hosts in Bosnia and Herzegovina in expressing our appreciation for the support and consideration given to us by the citizens of this country and thank them in advance for their understanding with regard to any inconvenience caused by training over the next month
