The Virginia National Guard is now partnered with Finland’s military through the National Guard Bureau’s State Partnership Program, according to a press release. “It is when we, in fact, come together in partnerships and can progress the most important values in the world of liberty and freedom, we can, in fact, then see prosperity,” said Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R), who signed the agreement in Helsinki earlier this month.
