Marines Ramp Up Training in Arctic Conditions

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.
