Dayton to mark Minnesota Minnesota-Norway troop exchange


For 40 years, members of the Minnesota National Guard and the Norwegian Home Guard have participated in an exchange program that promotes good will, improves cultural understanding, and sharpens military readiness between the two nations. This week, Gov. Mark Dayton will commemorate the 40th anniversary of the exchange with Minnesotan and Norwegian troops at two events; first in Minneapolis on Sunday, Feb. 17, and then Feb. 23 in Oslo, Norway.
