BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- The North Dakota National Guard is celebrating a decade-long partnership with Ghana.
A state delegation led by Guard commander David Sprynczynatyk and Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley recently visited senior government and military officials in the West African country. Another North Dakota delegation is scheduled to visit later this month.
The state Guard and Ghana have been participating since 2004 in the Defense Department-sponsored partnership program. Wrigley says it began as a military partnership and has expanded to include health care, business and economic partnerships. He says the next delegation will include experts in industry, trade and agriculture.
