The 702nd and 720th Ordnance Companies deployed 10 Soldiers to participate in Northern Challenge 17 in the first two weeks of October.
Northern Challenge is an Explosive Ordnance Disposal event hosted by the Icelandic Coast Guard that advances NATO’s efforts to fight international terrorism.
The event strengthens U.S. Army Europe’s connection to allies, local government leaders, and civilians in Europe. The training exercise is the largest EOD exercise in Europe. Approximately 15 NATO countries and more than 275 Soldiers were involved in the training exercise.
