WASHINGTON, DC – The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) hosted Lieutenant General Nikolaos Manouris, inspector general and deputy chief of the Hellenic Army General Staff (HAGS), at Hellenic House on November 6.

“We were honored to welcome Lt.

In addition, we reviewed Greece’s contributions as a NATO ally from the standpoint of the Hellenic Army.”

Lt. General Manouris’ visit to Washington also included meetings with his counterparts at the Department of Defense and a visit to National Defense University.
