U.S. Air Commandos from the 352nd Special Operations Wing, along with F-15E Strike Eagles from the 48th Fighter Wing, RAF Lakenheath, England, deployed to Aalborg, Denmark to support a combined readiness exercise in the Baltic Sea region.

This multilateral exercise enables these partners to train, increase readiness, enhance collective defense and provide the flexibility to effectively respond to any contingency. The NATO allied and partner nations' special operations forces will continue increasing interoperability to enable any multi-domain mission.

Agile combat employment within the Baltic and surrounding nations' airspace is key to regional defense and stability. Collective training events enhance the ability of NATO forces to work together effectively and develops the capability to fight from other locations and respond to any threats.
