North Dakota and Ghana Partnership

Since 2004, the North Dakota National Guard has been paired with Ghana, Africa, as part of the Department of Defense-sponsored State Partnership Program. Through the program, both the North Dakota National Guard and Ghana Armed Forces have benefitted from each other’s experience and knowledge through shared missions, workshops, exchanges and more.

Guardsmen from the North Dakota Air National Guard are very familiar with their Ghanaian military counterparts, in fact North Dakota and Ghana have been state partners for a number of years. Maintenance experts from the 119 Air Wing in Fargo were the natural choice then for the first ever African Partnership Flight. Air Force Staff Sergeant James Stewart introduces us to two North Dakotans who are proud to share their maintenance know-how with their Ghanaian friends and the other nations involved in the African Partnership Flight.
