A change of scene

There are changes that raise more hope than others, and the 10th Brigade "Guzmán el Bueno" will agree with this statement. This unit is the one which has generated the second rotation that Spain is going to provide to eFP: Enhanced Forward Presence ("Presencia Avanzada Reforzada" in Spanish), NATO's mission in Latvia. It will be deployed in January, transfering authority to its partners of the 11th Brigade "Extremadura", who opened this new stage and came back with a very positive balance about this experience.

Twinning units without borders

In the historical play "Henry V" by William Shakespeare, the Monarch mentions the expression "band of brothers" (banda de hermanos in Spanish) in his stirring speech to his troops before the Azincourt battle, during the Hundred Years' War. By mentioning that, he wanted to clarify that those who fight together, whatever their conditions are, create an invisible bond that joins them as if they were brothers. This is the idea that has inspired, in a military level, the twinning programme established by the Spanish Army with other units from allied countries; the main intention of this conception is to consolidate bonds and to increase interoperability.
