More commonly known as the NOREX Troop Exchange, this program, in its 46 th year, brings
around 100 Norwegian Home Guard soldiers to Camp Ripley for two weeks of winter training.
At the same time, a similar number of Minnesota National Guard soldiers, are in Norway doing
training in the Norwegian mountains. This is the oldest reciprocal troop exchange program
between two sovereign nations in the world.

A reception with cash bar and hosted hors d’oeuvres will be sponsored by the Norwegian-
American Chamber of Commerce, The Sons of Norway, Norway House and the Royal Norwegian
Honorary Consulate. We look forward to your participation in support of this exceptional
program between our two nations.
