Seven thousand sailors, soldiers and aircrew are taking part in Operation Steadfast Jaguar, a NATO war game currently underway on the island republic of Cape Verde. According to a NATO Allied Command Operations press release, the two-week long exercise based around the Atlantic Ocean archipelago is the largest deployment of NRF forces to date and will "test command, control and support functions of the expeditionary force over long supply lines with only very limited host nation support." As shown in the picture above, soldiers do have access to Port-A-Potties during the exercises but have been warned that the availability of safe, clean bathroom facilities will be on an invasion-by-invasion basis.
