Lieutenant General Lorenzo D'Addario hosted Lieutenant General Nicholas R.M. Borton, as they shared experiences and discussed possible areas of mutual interest, including training, to confirm that both commands are organizations ready to support the Alliance and international stability.

Lt. Gen.

Gen. D’Addario, COM NRDC-ITA, Maj. Gen. Bennet, DCOM, and Maj. Gen. Polli, COS.

Currently, it is the largest UK land command and hosts a multinational staff from more than twenty Alliance members or partner states, including a strong contingent of Italian Armed Forces.
