German liaison team honored.

On 26 March 2008, Brigadier General Thomas W. Spoehr, Commandant of the U.S. Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear School (USACBRNS) and Chief of the Chemical Corps, presented the German liaison team of Lieutenant Colonel Fabian Bosse and Sergeant Major Uwe Leiner with Orders of the Dragon for their efforts while assigned to the U. S. Army Maneuver Support Center (MANSCEN) and Fort Leonard Wood (Missouri). Lieutenant Colonel Bosse and Sergeant Major Leiner are members of the Atomare, Biologische, and Chemische (ABC)-Abwehrtruppe-the German equivalent of the Chemical Corps. This was the first time that the MANSCEN German liaison team had been composed solely of ABC-Abwehrtruppe Soldiers.

Lieutenant Colonel Bosse, who was assigned to this position in 2005, worked on high-level issues between the schools. He departed on 31 March 2008, returning to Germany for his next assignment with the German equivalent of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command.


Sergeant Major Leiner has worked extensively with trainees at the Chemical Defense Training Facility, Basic Officer Leadership Course, Chemical Captains Career Course, Basic Noncommissioned Officers Course, and Advanced Noncommissioned Officers Course-introducing them to the German Army and, most importantly, the German Army proficiency badge. Sergeant Major Leiner will depart this spring to attend the U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy at Fort Bliss, Texas.

Colonel Walk is the deputy assistant commandant for the U.S. Army Reserve, USACBRNS, Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
