“The role that Iowa played as the Balkan nation of Kosovo became an independent country will be featured in a documentary film to be shown Sunday in Fort Dodge.

”With a Cup of Sugar” will be shown beginning at 2 p.m. in the BioScience and Health Science Building at Iowa Central Community College.

Iowa Army National Guard soldiers served as peacekeepers in Kosovo in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008. In 2011, the Iowa National Guard became a formal partner with the security forces of Kosovo.

What started as a military partnership expanded. In 2013, Iowa and Kosovo became sister states.” (Messenger News)
