To raise awareness for suicide, post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injuries within the military and our veteran population, the North Carolina National Guard and the Moldovan Army joined in a “22 Push-Up Challenge.”
Despite being separated by 5,100 miles, the NC Guard and Moldovan Army regularly work and train together and the esprit de corps between the two organizations is high.
Moldova, a state partnership program country with the NC Guard, challenged the Guard via Facebook. The NC Guard accepted the challenge with each organization producing a video. Since 1996, the Guard and Moldova has sent soldiers to each other’s countries to train, learn best practices and strengthen ties between their services.
