NOREX Reception at Norway House


We welcomed officers with the Royal Norwegian Home Guard and Minnesota National Guard to the NOREX Reception on Tuesday February 19, 2019.

More commonly known as the NOREX Troop Exchange, this program, in its 46 th year, brings around 100 Norwegian Home Guard soldiers to Camp Ripley for two weeks of winter training. At the same time, a similar number of Minnesota National Guard soldiers, are in Norway doing training in the Norwegian mountains. This is the oldest reciprocal troop exchange program between two sovereign nations in the world.

A reception with cash bar and hosted hors d’oeuvres was sponsored by the Norwegian-American Chamber of Commerce, The Sons of Norway, Norway House and the Royal Norwegian Honorary Consulate.
