Iowa National Guard, Major General Ben Corell visiting Kosovo, September 23, 2019
On his first visit to Kosovo since being named Adjutant General of the Iowa National Guard, Major General Ben Corell gave the following statement: “I am honored to represent the Iowa National Guard here in Kosovo. We will continue to be engaged and support the Kosovo Security Force and the U.S. Embassy.”
Major General Corell, who replaced Major General Tim Orr as the Adjutant General of the Iowa National Guard, is conducting his initial visit to Kosovo this week. Since 2011, the Iowa National Guard has been Kosovo’s state partner providing support to the Kosovo Security Force. What has made this state partnership unique is that Iowa has a whole of society approach which has included all levels of government, education, athletics, private business, energy and agriculture.
The U.S. Embassy can be contacted for more details about this important Kosovo-Iowa state partnership.
