Dinner for the Families of Bulgarian Service Members

The U.S. Defense Attaché to Bulgaria Col. Shannon Johnson hosted in Blagoevgrad a dinner for the families of Bulgarian service members who are currently deployed to Afghanistan. The spouses of Bulgarian soldiers had the chance to relax in an atmosphere of friendship, while U.S. military members stationed at the U.S. Embassy in Sofia played circle games and American football with the Bulgarian service members’ children. The United States and Bulgaria have been allies and partners in Afghanistan since 2002.
