Army Reserve Soldiers Support Major Exercise in Baltic Nations


Dahms, Jon, Army Reserve Magazine


ALUKSNE, Latvia - Soldiers from the 7th Army Reserve Command, headquartered in Schwetzingen, Germany, and five other Army Reserve units are supporting international military exercises in Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia.

The Reserve Soldiers have joined troops from 17 nations for a series of exercises designed to provide medical training and assess the participating nations' ability in anti-terrorism measures, search and rescue operations, and disaster response scenarios.

"The 7th ARCOM's role in this exercise is mainly real world support," said SSG Rick Scavetta, Public Affairs Noncommissioned Officer for the International Task Force. "Our Soldiers oversee force protection, media relations, and visitor escorts."

Roughly 2,000 troops will take part in the 15-day RESCUER/Medical Exercise Central Europe (MEDCEUR) 2004, in the Baltic Nations and Bulgaria. Military personnel from the United States, Germany, Poland, Romania, Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan are taking part with host nation troops.

"This exercise is basically four exercises rolled into one," said MAJ Chris Baker, a U.S. Army Europe operations officer who led planning for mission. "We have a computer-based scenario that sets the stage for the whole exercise. Woven into this scenario is a medical exercise, a diving exercise, and a search and rescue exercise."

Army Reserve units joining the 7th ARCOM to support the exercise include the 368th Engineer Battalion (Londonderry, N.H.), the 330th Combat Support Hospital, (Millington, Tenn.), 207th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment (Denver, CoIo.), the 362nd Public Affairs Detachment (Londonderry, N.H.), and the 358th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment (Salt Lake City, Utah).

In Klaipeda, Lithuania, Soldiers from the 368th Engineer Battalion are renovating an orphanage. Working alongside Lithuanians, the New Hampshire-based Reserve troops are installing new windows and renovating a dining room. Nearby, the engineers are also building a timber trestle bridge to allow year round access for Klaipeda's rural residents to cross a flood plain.

Also in Klaipeda, the 330th CSH is supporting MEDCEUR, the medical portion of the exercise. More than 30 Soldiers from the unit will be working with first responders from the host nation and military medical personnel from 11 other nations in responding to small, medium, and large mass casualty events.
