For the first time ever, the United States sent a team to the famous Edelweiss Raid – a grueling two-day mountain warfare competition hosted by the Bundesheer in the Austrian Alps. This year the U.S. was represented by the Green Mountain Boys of the Vermont National Guard. No team has ever finished the race in its first year, but our boys are making us proud!

Ambassador Traina went to the Tuxer Alpen to cheer on Team USA, chat with General Secretary Wolfgang Baumann, and partake in a bit of back country skiing.
