Baron visiting regiment in Jamaica
Senator Jeff Baron is visiting the Royal Bermuda Regiment during their annual training exercises in Jamaica today.
The Junior Minister of National Security will observe as the Regiment, along with officers from the Bermuda Police Service and personnel from St John Ambulance, take part in a series of intense exercises.
The training stems from an ongoing partnership between the Jamaica Defence Force and the Regiment.
Mr Baron said in a statement: “The Royal Bermuda Regiment continues to be a great source of pride for Bermuda.
“Their resilience, determination and commitment while engaging in these intense training activities should be supported and commended. We have very strong ties and connections to Jamaica and as a result Bermuda has forged a beneficial bond with the country that has allowed for the hosting of overseas camps for the RBR.
“These training activities provide our soldiers an invaluable opportunity to test and strengthen their military readiness and preparedness, and I’m looking forward to seeing their skills put to use in the challenging conditions in Jamaica.
“Certainly on behalf of the Premier and the Government I want to extend thanks to the Jamaica Defence Force for their hospitality and training support for our Regiment’s camp.”
