Exercise JOINT RESOLVE 2024 Hosted Distinguished Visitors' Day

From the 6th of May until the 24th of May, the Polish War Studies University (WSU) Warsaw, in cooperation with the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL) and the Finnish National Defence University (FNDU), is conducting a Combined Joint Staff Exercise JOINT RESOLVE 2024 (JR24).

The Exercise authorities organized and hosted a Distinguished Visitors Day (DVD) on Thursday, 23rd May. This afforded Distinguished Visitors an excellent opportunity to visit the Polish War Studies University and the Wargaming and Simulation Centre co-located at Rembertow in order to have an overview of the exercise concept and construct.

The distinguished visitors were welcomed by General (Retired) Mieczyslaw Gocul, the Rector of the War Studies University, Brigadier General Alvydas Šiuparis, the Commandant of the Baltic Defence College and Colonel D.Sc (Tech) Rainer Peltoniemi, Vice-Rector of the Finnish National Defence University. After a short reception, the programme commenced with a briefing session where the three institutions introduced their vision, mission, and academic activities. In addition, Colonel Toomas Möls, one of the Exercise JOINT RESOLVE 2024 Exercise Directors, explained the history, aim, structure, and objectives of JR24.

Following the briefings, the Distinguished Visitors were afforded the opportunity to observe a streamed and simulated JTF HQ Press Conference and afterwards to engage with the Primary Training Audience and Exercise Control Staff, observing a number of ongoing Boards and Working Groups. The varied discussions with the exercise training audience and control staff facilitated potential exercise opportunities in the future.

Combined Joint Staff Exercise JOINT RESOLVE 2024 will culminate on Friday, 24 May 24, with the simultaneous delivery of three key events that are a feature of a busy Joint Task Force Headquarters, providing an overview to the Commander of the current operation and future planning.

The aim of JR24 is to formulate a solution to complex operational problems by developing and executing a viable joint operational plan using the NATO operational planning process. In addition, to practice working together in a multinational environment and with officers with different backgrounds and education, JR24 is orchestrated by three Professional Military Education institutions: the Polish War Studies University, The Baltic Defence College and the Finnish National Defence University.

This year's edition of the JOINT RESOLVE Exercise includes over 200 participants representing the following nations: Australia, Canada, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, South Korea, Sweden, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and the United States. This allows for an enhancement of the respective students’ understanding of the complexities involved in planning combined joint operations along with conducting valuable multicultural activities.
