Exercise Maple Caravan 2015

The 619th Transportation Company, an Army Reserve unit out of Dexter, Maine, begins a long haul mission Sunday as part of Exercise MAPLE CARAVAN 2015.  During this training exercise the 619th TC will transport Canadian Army equipment from Canadian Forces Base Valcartier to Canadian Forces Base Wainwright.  This is the first time an Army Reserve transportation unit has conducted a long haul mission across Canada.

Exercise MAPLE CARAVAN 15 will ultimately involve more than 300 Army Reserve and National Guard Soldiers.  During the Exercise, which runs from March through June, approximately 60 loads of Canadian equipment will be transported more than 2,500 miles across Canada.

Short of an actual deployment, MAPLE CARAVAN 15 provides the most realistic and dynamic training experience possible. Soldiers will experience cross-border logistics, driving in inclement weather, and navigating roads, and merging doctrines from different armies.  The Exercise allows U.S. and Canadian Forces to execute meaningful and challenging training together and prepare for mobilization and deployment.
