Training Exercise - Battle Griffin '99
January / 1999
March / 1999
Description Battle Griffin is a triennial joint allied field exercise (FTX), that exercises the Norway Air-Landed Marine Ground Task Force (NALMAGTF) concept to reinforce Norway and Norwegian National Forces in cooperation with North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), National Headquarters, and other designated NATO forces.
The Norway Air-Landed Marine Expeditionary Brigade (NALMEB), also called the Norway Air Landed Marine Air Ground Task Force (NALMAGTAF), is the Marine Corps' only land-based prepositioned stock. The expeditionary force flies into Norway using a minimum amount of strategic airlift, marries up with the equipment and supplies, and redeploys throughout Norway as needed.
The Battle Griffin exercise is designed to test all aspects of NALMEB (deployment of forces from CONUS, withdrawal of equipment and supplies from cave sites, redeployment of equipment and supplies, integration of U.S. and Norwegian forces, etc.).
