3e REI: Exercise Caraïbes 2024

In late May and early June 2024, the armed forces of Martinique and Guadeloupe, overseas departments of France in the eastern Caribbean Sea, were mobilized as part of the exercise Caraïbes 2024 (Caribbean 2024). The aim of this full-scale exercise was to train teams to intervene effectively in the event of a natural disaster in the French West Indies, where the hurricane season is slowly approaching. The men of the Foreign Legion’s 3rd Foreign Infantry Regiment (3e REI) also participated.

It is good to recall the year 2017, when Hurricane Irma heavily damaged another French island in the Caribbean, Saint Martin. At the time, as a response, about 150 legionnaires of the 2nd Company 3e REI left French Guiana and deployed to Saint Martin to launch rescue operations.
