Regiment receives refurbished vans and truck

The US military will hand over three refurbished vans and a truck to the Royal Bermuda Regiment next week.

The vehicles, three Toyota vans and an Isuzu truck, were formerly used at a US Navy base in Japan and gifted to the Regiment by the US Northern Command (Northcom).

They were transferred Georgia for a makeover before being shipped to Bermuda for use by the island's soldiers.

US Consul General Mary Ellen Koenig said: “We are pleased to see the continuation of the long, strong tradition of close ties between the US military and Bermuda. These vehicles will be used by the Regiment to provide support to relief efforts for events and emergencies across the island.”

Northcom Chief of Security Operation, Colonel Andrew MacLean, and Ms Koenig will hand the trucks over to RBR Commanding Officer Lieutenant-Colonel David Curley and Minister for National Security Jeff Baron at the RBR's Warwick Camp next Tuesday.
