Maj. Gen. Deborah A. Ashenhurst, Ohio adjutant general, and a delegation from Ohio visited Serbia in September 2012 as part of the ongoing National Guard State Partnership Program, which supports U.S. national interests and security cooperation goals by engaging partner nations and National Guard states via military, socio-political and economic exchanges. The visit included participation in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a school gym renovation project that more than 30 Ohio National Guard engineers helped complete while working alongside their Serbian counterparts, as well as participation in the "Batajnica 2012" Air Show, highlighting 100 years of Serbian military aviation.
