UPI reports that “the Norwegian military said about 300 U.S. Marines have arrived in Norway for a six-month deployment, which coincides with a NATO effort to reinforce its border with Russia.”

“Most of the 330 Marines arrived via a U.S. military plane at the Trondheim Airport on Monday. Norway said the arrival of the U.S. forces is part of a previous bilateral agreement between Oslo and Washington, D.C.”

“The U.S. troops that arrived will be replaced in six months by Marines who will also be deployed for six months.”
