“While SETAF [Southern European Task Force - U.S. Army Africa] has trained, exercised and

deployed to Africa in the past, our focus and mission in Africa changed December 3rd when the announcement was made in Rome by the Italian and U.S. Governments that SETAF and Naval Forces Africa would become the Army and Navy components to U.S. Africa Command,” Army Maj. Gen. William "Burke" Garrett III, commanding general, U.S. Army Africa, said in a Bloggers Roundtable to discuss the new mission of SETAF and the organization’s future role.

Attending the call were Jim Dolbow, http://blog.usni.org/, David Axe, www.warisboring.com; Greg Grant, www.military.com; and Chuck Simmons, http://northshorejournal.org/.
