A convoy of almost 400 American soldiers and 80 military vehicles passed through Romanian territory on Wednesday, in what was dubbed the “Cavalry March”. The convoy, heading for multinational military drills, left the Mihail Kogalniceanu military base and covered 290 kilometers on its first day. It arrived in the city of Ploiesti, where local residents had an opportunity to take a closer look at the armored vehicles. On Thursday, the convoy will reach the Romanian Land Forces Combat Training Center in Cincu, where US soldiers will meet their Canadian, British and Romanian counterparts. The international military exercise will take place between May 15 and June 6.
