原文:

 Soldiers with the 10th Mountain Division recently completed an unprecedented 550-mile road trip across Norway, Sweden and Finland in which troops dealt with long-distance logistics, local laws and infrastructure regulations.

 Over the course of five days in late April, the Army 10th Mountain Division moved a convoy of 400 soldiers, 165 vehicles, and thousands of tons of equipment through small Scandinavian towns, around fjords, and across three different countries on a 550-mile road march.

 The exercise was the first time in decades that a major Army maneuver unit had traveled so far in Europe."The Army did these convoys during the surge in Iraq, where they would convoy from Kuwait," Maj. Rachael Jeffcoat, a spokesperson for the 10th Mountain Division said. But the long-distance march was a first "for the European theater."

 "We just crossed Finland's one-year anniversary for them joining NATO and then Sweden just joined here in March," said Col. Ryan Barnett, commander of the 10th Mountain Division's 3rd Brigade. "This was the first time the U.S. military had tested this capacity to land a brigade in Norway and then road march it across Norway through Sweden and then wind up in training areas in Finland."

 美陸軍第10山地師官兵,最近完成在挪威、瑞典和芬蘭史無前例的550哩道路行軍演訓。在行軍過程中,部隊除了要解決長距離後勤問題外,也須遵守當地法律和基礎設施規定。

 在4月下旬為期5天的550哩行軍過程中,陸軍第10山地師出動由400名官兵、165輛軍車和數千噸裝備所組成的車隊,穿越北歐城鎮、峽灣和3個不同的國家。

 這是美陸軍機動部隊數十年來,首次在歐洲進行長距離行軍演訓。該師發言人傑夫寇特少校表示:「陸軍在沙漠風暴作戰期間,曾自科威特以車隊道路行軍方式增援伊拉克,但在歐洲戰區實施長距離行軍演訓卻是首次。」

 該師第3旅旅長巴內特上校表示:「我們在歐洲行軍之際,適逢芬蘭加入北約滿1週年,以及瑞典於今年3月成為北約新成員。這也是美軍首次測試以1個旅於挪威登陸後,使用道路行軍方式,穿越挪威和瑞典,最後在芬蘭結束演訓的能力。」
