Marines with the Marine Rotational Force Europe are putting the Corps motto “in every clime and place” to the test as they continue with Arctic exercises amid below-zero temperatures in northern Scandinavia.
About 300 Marines just finished exercise White Claymore earlier this month, a cold-weather drill that put Marines on skis to learn to fight in Nordic mountains.
Now, a platoon of those Marines is gearing up for the Joint Reindeer exercise in the same region, beginning next week, while another platoon is headed to conduct similar training in Sweden.
