Four Marines with Black Sea Rotational Force 14 low-crawl under one of more than fifteen obstacles during a Cold Weather Operations course in Rovaniemi, Finland, Jan.7, 2014. The obstacles tested agility, speed and proficiency with ski gear. The cold weather course included shelter construction, gathering and cooking food, land navigation, camouflaging methods, emergency first-aid, and basic procedures after cold water exposure. The training and partnership between the U.S. and Finnish forces proved to be an integral part of BSRF-14’s mission of maintaining and further strengthening close-and-solid relationships while promoting regional stability and increasing interoperability with partner nations in the region.
