The US Army’s 1st Battalion, 101st Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB), 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) has worked together with Greek’s Hellenic Armed Forces for a joint training mission, called Ugly Eddie. Ugly Eddie took place on Velopoula Island and over the Aegean Sea last January 13-14. The joint mission entailed aerial coverage operations and providing medical evacuation capabilities to Greek special operations forces (SOF), and transporting troops. This intimate has given birth to U.S. and Greek soldiers the opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences that are beneficial to both parties.
