US ambassador, MFE Marines tour supply caves in Norway

U.S. Ambassador to Norway Barry B. White listens to Norwegian Kaptein Gliberg explain how medical supplies are stored and maintained aboard Vaernes Garrison, during a recent trip to Norway, Jan 6, 2012. The Ambassador was participating in a tour comprised of service members from U.S. European Command, U.S. Africa Command, Marine Forces Europe and Marine Forces Africa. The tour was intended to inform the members of the local military logistics community of the capabilities of the Marine Corps Pre-positioning Program - Norway.
“The Marine Corps, with the help of our Norwegian partners, has worked hard to ensure that the equipment stored in this facility is not a relic of the Cold War, but responds directly to today’s security and crisis response needs,” said White.
