01 Aug. 2014

Three ships from the Standing NATO Maritime Group Two (SNMG2) arrived in the port of Halifax, Canada for a scheduled port visit ahead of exercises with US and Canadian navies on Thursday (31 July 2014). The exercise in North America is to test the readiness of NATO’s naval forces though joint training, said the Group Commander, Rear Adm. Brad Williamson. “I look forward to operating with the US, Canadian, German and Turkish units participating in this exercise,” he said, adding that Task Group Exercise is one of many opportunities “to foster trans-Atlantic interoperability and further enhance the readiness of NATO forces.”
