KIEL, Germany – Petty Officer 3rd Class Raymond Stenger, a native of Clermont, Florida, is participating in the Baltic Operations (BALTOPS) exercise with 18 other nations.
“We provide support toward all ship’s network capabilities during the exercise,” said Stenger. “Working with other foreign countries is worth its weight in gold.”
BALTOPS 2019, scheduled for June 8-21, includes sea, air and land assets. The multi-national exercise provides a unique training opportunity that fosters cooperative relationships critical to ensuring safety at sea and security on the world’s interconnected oceans. According to U.S. Navy officials, it is designed to improve training value for participants, enhance flexibility and interoperability, and demonstrate resolve among allied and partner forces in defending the Baltic Sea region.
