Norwegian - Minnesota National Guard Troop Exchange: Staff Sergeant Anthony Housey

The Norwegian Reciprocal Troop Exchange (NOREX) was established in 1974 and is the longest-running military exchange partnership between any two nations. The yearly exchange between Norway and the Minnesota National Guard promotes good will and sharpens military readiness between the nations.  Additionally, it provides opportunities for cultural understanding among its participants. 2018 marks the 44th anniversary of this Partners for Peace exchange program which has had over 9,700 Soldier’s, Airmen and Home Guard personnel participate. Members of Lakselaget have helped host Norwegian Troops over the years.  It will be very interesting to learn more about this program from Staff Sergeant Housey, Camp Ripley’s Public Affairs NCO, a 21-year veteran of the Army and the Minnesota National Guard.
