This is How U.S. Marines Will Take the Fight to Russia in the Arctic

Standoff in the Artic

About 90 Marines from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit from Camp Lejeune carried out a mock air assault in Iceland last week as part of the initial phase of NATO’s largest war games since the end of the Cold War.   The NATO war games, called Trident Juncture 2018, will begin on Thursday in Norway and include more than 50,000 troops from 31 countries.


According to NATO, the purpose of Trident Juncture is “to ensure that NATO forces are trained, able to operate together, and ready to respond to any threat from any direction.”
