During Exercise Cold Response 2022 in Norway, members of the US Marine Corps worked with European Allies in a demonstration of transatlantic unity and strength.

Synopsis

During Exercise Cold Response 2022 in Norway, members of the US Marine Corps arrived ashore in Dutch landing craft and US Marine helicopters provided air support to Italian Marines who were training on the ground, in a demonstration of transatlantic unity and strength.
Exercises like Cold Response enable Allied forces from both sides of the Atlantic to work together. This helps to align skills and practices and overcome barriers such as different systems and languages. It also means that decades-long bonds can be reaffirmed and strengthened.
The exercise took place in March 2022 and featured 30,000 troops from 27 NATO Allied and partner countries.

“Y’all use the metric system where we still use imperial so learning everything in tenths rather than twelfths is a little confusing.”

“The moment we start practising with each other with the same weapons systems, the same tactics, we are able to be deployed that way anywhere in the world. So when we are actually linked to a task, that cooperation will make it easier.”

“It is more important than ever, in this situation, to strengthen the Alliance ties between European countries and the United States. It is important in order to use the same procedures, to test force interoperability and work together.”
