Dutch Borrow Forces' Vehicles

Published: Wednesday, 09/20/2006 12:00 am EDT

The Canadian Forces are lending the Dutch military five heavily-armed patrol vehicles for use in southern Afghanistan. In return, the Netherlands has offered the Canadian Forces use of flight time on their helicopters. "It's a temporary loan until the Dutch are ready to receive their own vehicles," said Maj. Luc Gaudet, Canadian Expeditionary Force spokesman. Maj. Gaudet expects the vehicles will be returned sometime this fall.
