Need to know how to pronounce Ouagadougou (the capital of Burkina Fasso)? Wondering which countries border Sudan?
Looking for an explanation of AFRICOM’s mission or a list of contacts?
The answers can be found on the U.S. Africa Command website, a wealth of resources and information about the command, our African partners and the men and women who serve with us.
The website’s home page always includes the latest news from AFRICOM in stories, photos and video. It also features “Africom Dialogues,” a compilation of short vignettes, essays and reports from AFRICOM staff members.
Delve into the tabs at the top of the page, and the treasure trove of facts really opens up. There you’ll find everything you ever wanted to know about AFRICOM (and probably even more).
Some of our favorite links include the pronunciation guides and the interactive map. Under the “About the Command” tab you’ll find the AFRICOM posture statements, mission statement, all kinds of fact sheets and links to international organizations and groups, as well as links to news sources, NGOs and a host of other great resources.
Back on the home page, at the top, you’ll see a section of icons. These link you to our various social media sites and other links of interest, including this blog, the African Union home page and the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa.
The AFRICOM website is designed to be your one-stop shop for information on the command and beyond, a virtual encyclopedia/fact book/atlas at your fingerprints.
So settle in, take a few minutes and look around. Have fun. Study up.
Then leave a comment and tell us what you learned. Happy surfing!
