I applaud Governor Tom Wolf’s recent trip to Lithuania and Poland. He is the first serving governor to travel to the region and it is a great opportunity to strengthen the state’s military, economic and business ties with these important NATO allies.
Governor Wolf visited the nearly 600 Pennsylvania National Guard troops serving in the region. The National Guard is commemorating the 26th anniversary of its partnership with the Lithuanian Armed Forces this year. Thousands of Pennsylvanians have deployed to, or trained with, the Lithuanian Armed Forces since 1993, making it one of the most successful state partnerships in the nation.
