The NATO military Committee consists of the chiefs of the General staffs of the member States of the bloc. The Committee advises other organs of the organization and provides advice on military strategy, thereby influencing the political decisions of the Alliance.
It is known that Louise was born in 1964. She began her career in 1987.
According to Dedichen, she looks forward to when she will be able to start the duties in a new position.
She will work together with the Ministry of Defense and the NATO Alliance.
