ADALEDE visits CAOC
On Wednesday 9th of March, ADALEDE went to visit CAOC.
We had the privilege to be invited by Major General of the Air Force, Ruben Garcia Servet.
As a consequence of the new strategic concept of NATO showed at Lisbon Summit in 2010, Defense Ministers of the countries of the Alliance met in order to adopt a new command structure and a new geographical distribution of the Headquarters. With this changes, NATO only has kept two operational centers: one in Germany, responsible of the northern flank, and another one in Torrejón (Madrid, Spain) responsible of the southern flank.
In the visit, the Major General shows us the functions that take place in this center. Then, we make a tour for the facilities.
We finish a curious morning with a glass of nice Spanish wine and we say goodbye to the other guests.
