    5,000 Tons of Ammunition Sent to U.S. Army in Germany

    A delivery of over 5,000 tons of U.S. Army Europe ammunition arrived at a port in Germany last week, NBC News reported.

    The shipment is the biggest of its kind in over a decade, containing small arms, combat vehicle ammunition and artillery rounds. Ammunition was sent to an Army depot in Miseau for distribution, and it comes amid the re-alignment of NATO forces in that region, as well as during preparation for a U.S. Army Europe training exercise.

    According to officials, the shipment "allows U.S. and NATO forces to quickly access ammunition and other supplies for short notice NATO operations."
