U.S. Marines were (or maybe still are) in Bardufoss, Norway for a military exercise called White Claymore. And on Feb. 10, they conducted “an ice-breaking drill exercise,” which taught them how to survive a plunge into icy water.
On Feb. 13, DVIDS released the above video of the Marines training in Norway on Feb. 10. The metadata doesn’t specify if it was Norwegian military personnel who ran the drill exercise or if it was another military force that happened to be in-country with the U.S. Marines.
Regardless, if you want to feel chilled to the bones, watch this video of troops jumping into wintry water, struggling to pull themselves out of it, and then running to . . . somewhere as they learn how to avoid freezing to death even in the worst of conditions.
