Naval Special Warfare operators from U.S. Special Operations Command along with NATO Special Operations Forces from Albania, Bulgaria and Lithuania partnered with the U.S. Army’s 2nd Cavalry Regiment during Saber Junction 17 at the Joint Multinational Readiness Center in Hohenfels, Germany April 25-May 19, 2017.
The exercise was 2CR’s brigade-level validation exercise designed to prepare the unit for combat operations in the complex European theater of operations.
“The SOF cell at JMRC brought in a multinational Special Operations Task Group to train with 2CR,” said U.S. Army Maj. Robert Temple, JMRC SOF cell officer-in-charge. “Our goal is to create a SOF training environment that provides realistic operational scenarios as well as opportunities to build relationships with SOF elements.”
One of these elements was a U.S.-based SOF team comprised of Navy SEALs. The team worked closely with 2CR during the exercise which included embedding a liaison officer with the unit.
