US Army convoy enters Macedonia for the Dragoon Guardian 17 exercise


A convoy of 120 vehicles with 300 US Army soldiers crossed into Macedonia from Bulgaria on Friday. The soldiers, who are part of an engineering unit will take part in the Dragoon Guardian 17 military exercise, and have traveled through a number of Eastern European countries in a show of resolve in light of the regional security challenges.

The exercise, which will be held together with 100 Macedonian soldiers, will take place in the Krivolak army training grounds. The US unit will in the meantime tour a number of cities, showcasing its armament and equipment.

The tour begins in Skopje, Stip and Veles on Saturday and Sunday. The Krivolak exercise begins on Monday, and the last two cities the convoy will visit are Strumica and Struga on Thursday and Friday.

The two armies will practice setting up a runway for drones, which will remain for future use of the Macedonian Army. Other exercises will include clearing up improvised explosive devices, clean up of radiation contamination and target practices.
