Reserve CST Leads Multi-National CBRN Demonstration
The 773rd Civil Support Team, 7th Mission Support Command, joins the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces Salvage and Rescue Unit for a group photo following a CBRN demonstration at the Port of Agadir, Morocco, Jun. 9, 2023. The two units trained together, sharing knowledge and techniques for reacting to HAZMAT events, building interoperability. Building partnerships, supporting civil infrastructure, and establishing security and professional defense institutions help a government create the stability its population needs to establish a thriving, peaceful nation. The 773rd is a technical HAZMAT reaction team, the only one of its kind in the U.S. Army Europe - Africa area of operations. Exercises such as African Lion provide opportunities for this specialized Army Reserve asset to assess, develop, and train alongside Allies and partners, getting the repetitions needed to fight and win together, on the modern-day battlefield, and illustrates the vital role America’s Army Reserve fills in unilateral military operations around the globe. 18 nations and approximately 8,000 personnel will participate in African Lion 2023, U.S. Africa Command's largest annual combined, joint exercise that will take place in multiple countries to include Morocco, from May 13 - June 18, 2023.
