eFP Latvia concludes Integration Capstone Exercise

ĀDAŽI, Latvia– Enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group Latvia has wrapped up Integration Capstone Exercise (ICE 1901), an exercise involving 10 NATO nations, held at Camp Ādaži, Latvia from Feb. 21 - 26, 2019.
 
For the first time this year all enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) Battlegroup contingents worked together as one, with a coordinated and united approach, demonstrating their joint capabilities.
 
"My first impressions of the professionalism and motivation of the eFP BG have been confirmed through our training. Our teamwork has demonstrated our cohesion and interoperability should we be required to defend Latvia. The integrated capstone exercise confirmed our readiness and more specifically our ability to work together as one team within the Latvian Mechanized Infantry Brigade,” said Lieutenant Colonel Philippe Sauvé, Commanding Officer, Enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group Latvia.
 
ICE 1901 is designed to train eFP military personnel in cold winter weather conditions with a goal to engage and hold the enemy until reinforcements from the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) arrive.
 
Albania, Canada, Czech Republic, Italy, Latvia, Montenegro, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain took part in the exercise.
