U.S. Marines visit Hegra school

Sgt. John Watson, a military policeman with Marine Rotational Force Europe 17.1, speaks to students of Hegra Ungdomsskole March 2, 2017 in Hegra, Norway. Sgt. Watson and two other law enforcement Marines were invited to speak to 8th, 9th, and 10th graders at Hegra Ungdomsskole, a Norwegian secondary

Earlier this month, students at Hegra Upper Secondary School welcomed a group of U.S. Marines to their classrooms. The Marines are part of the Marine Rotational Force Europe 17.1 who are currently deployed at Værnes, and they talked to 8th, 9th, and 10th grades about their Norwegian experience.

The Marine Corps’ presence in Norway allows for increased collaboration with NATO allies and partners and galvanizes their long and close relationship with the Norwegian Armed Forces.
