Default Son-in-law heading to Norway

Please pray for my daughter and my Son-in-law as he heads to Norway until late March. He should be in Ireland now. This is his first "deployment" since they've been married. She is in college in North Carolina and working part time so hopefully it goes by fast for her. They are great kids and we are praying that everything goes smooth for both of them while they are apart. I hate being 18 hrs away from her while he is gone.

Will pray for him, can you PM his name and I'll pray by name.

Norway is a really awesome country, my favorite in all of Europe.

Do you know what part of the country?

PM sent. Thanks!

I'm not sure of the town he is near but I know it is in the southern part of the country.

Is he going for cold weather training? Or a longer deployment.


Oops. Edit. Just saw where he's staying 'til March.

Cold weather training is only a month or so.

He said he's supposed to be back in late March. I believe they are basically going to train the Norwegians military/police from what I understand.

Norway is a beautiful country. Expensive as all get out though


Tell him to go see Trollstigen and Geiranger if he gets a chance. Prettiest places I've ever seen.

I work for a Norwegian company, Iím in Bergen about once per year. Good people, beautiful country. Expensive and food goes down hill fast once you get past fresh seafood and he will be there at the worst possible time in terms of weather (miserable and depressing) otherwise probably couldnít be in a safer place.

It's called a Marine Rotational Force. It's like a UDP (Unit Deployment Program) to Okinawa but to Norway.

Those rotational deployments called Marine Rotational Forces - Europe are a deterrent to Russia supposedly. They started about 15 months ago.

Thanks for all of the prayers for them. I'm sure it'll be a cool experience for him but I know my daughter sure is gonna miss him. Just part of it though.
