National Guard Celebrates Ghana Partnership

Posted: Updated:

It's time to celebrate, North Dakota's National Guard celebrated 10-years of collaboration with Ghana through the National Guard Bureau's State Partnership Program.

For years, our guardsmen have traveled to Ghana to teach and learn military, civilian and business partnerships. The ceremony had remarks from several North Dakotan leaders and Ghanaian Armed Forces Leaders. Many spoke of the general warmth between the people.  

"Not the temperature, Ghana's very close to the equator, so it's a little bit different. Twelve hours of sunshine and twelve hours of darkness all year long. It's not like here. But the warmth of the people, the hospitality of the people, is something that North Dakotans understand," says civilian aid to Army secretary Connie Sprynczynatyk. 

To close the ceremony, both Major General Sprynczynatyk and the Ghanaian Chief of Armed Forces exchanged gifts and signed a deceleration to honor the day.
