Logistic Support Challenges Update: Andrews Federal Credit Union- Belgium SOFA Supplement - granting the status of "Civilian Component" to certain Indirect Hires (contractors) has been approved for signature by OSD and State. It will in due course be sent to US Embassy Brussels with authority to sign. The Supplement allows us to propose componency status for certain -- not all -- indirect hires. Technical experts, troop care providers, university professors, persons who exclusively support the United States
Logistic Support Challenges Update Continued: Belgium will not allow componency for someone who is ordinarily resident, who can claim componency through dependency status, or who is exercising a function that can be served through a local hire. Effects on AFCU:
