U.S. Military Starts Eastern European ‘Road March’

Posted March 23, 2015 at 5:05am

Army Times reports that “columns of Stryker vehicles will road march across Eastern Europe in an unprecedented exercise designed to assure America’s allies.”  

“Operation Dragoon Ride is scheduled to begin March 21, and it comes one year after Russia annexed Crimea in an action condemned by Kiev and the West as an illegal land grab, but heralded by many Russians as correcting a historic injustice.”  

“It also comes as Operation Atlantic Resolve, which launched last April in the three Baltic States and Poland, prepares to expand into two new countries.”
