Equipment for the joint military training operation Exercise Tradewinds 2012 arrived yesterday aboard the United States Army Vessel (USAV) Brandy Station.
Lieutenant Colonel Ricardo Vickers, a co-director of the operation, told the media that the equipment, including vehicles, generator sets and field kitchens was important for the success of the exercise.
Additional equipment is expected to arrive soon on USAV Mission Ridge.
Exercise Tradewinds 2012 will be held June 15 to 24 under the theme Promoting Regional And Hemispheric Security And Stability.
Logistics officer Captain Wesley Beckles said most of the training this year would be on the military bases. About 550 soldiers and police officers from around CARICOM will be involved in the exercise along with 250 trainers and support personnel from Canada and the United States.
