Paterna to host NATO’s biggest drill in 20 years
Military personnel from Paterna will take part in the military exercises that are to be carried out by NATO in Norway from October 20 to November 8.
Nearly 50 vehicles and 200 military men and women left Paterna late last week, heading to take part in the largest military drill in 20 years on our continent. NATO’s Trident Juncture will mobilise ground troops in Norway, air forces in Sweden and Finland, and sea forces in the Baltic and North Atlantic seas. A total of 45,000 people are expected to take part, in an attempt to flex military muscle and act as a deterrent for potential threats. It will also help train troops who are to become a part of the NATO Response Force 2019.
