The U.N. is investing $3.5 billion in a financial education network to help U.K. troops cope with a possible withdrawal from the European Union, the United States and other countries.
The foundation is called the Armament and Equipment Acquisition Initiative and it aims to help soldiers develop skills and knowledge across a wide range of fields.
The initiative is part of a larger effort by the U to invest in the future of the global economy, including through education and technology.
In a statement, the U said the initiative will support U.k. troops in their transition to civilian life, and to provide the most comprehensive and responsive education resources for the military and the wider U.s. military community.
“We are building on the foundation of this important new initiative and ensuring that U.ks. military personnel are ready to contribute to a world that is much more resilient and capable than it has ever been,” Lt.
Gen. Christopher Bogdan, chief of the U, said in the statement.
Defense Ministry said the armaments acquisition initiative would focus on two areas: supporting military personnel and enabling them to prepare for, and survive, a global conflict.
“The project will support the Ullapool Army, a multi-national brigade of infantry, tank, and artillery troops deployed to Europe and elsewhere to conduct joint training, support operations, and support humanitarian missions,” a ministry statement said.
U.S.-led forces are preparing for a possible European withdrawal in late 2019, and the U is hoping to bolster the defense of its allies in a post-Brexit world.
The alliance says it will deploy 1,000 troops to the region in 2019.
The Ullapsool Army is also training at the Uhlansdorf Training Area near Karlsruhe, Germany, and training at other bases in Germany, Poland and Romania.
