The NLRs provide Headquarters, Supreme Allied Commander Transformation with national viewpoints and information from national sources, and serve as a channel of communication between HQ SACT and their national authorities.
There is a clear advantage in having National Liaison Representatives collocated with Supreme Allied Commander Transformation in Norfolk, Virginia, as the transformation processes continue to develop.
