US Armed Forces visit Alexandroupolis on the one-and-a-half century celebrations of the city’s railway.

The Greek Minister of National Defence, Nikos Panagiotopoulos, and the American Ambassador to Greece, Geoffrey Pyatt, arrived in Alexandroupolis on Thursday morning to attend the one-and-a-half century anniversary celebration of the port’s inauguration after the arrival of the railway in 1871.

The large American transport Endurance Vehicle Carrier has been in Alexandroupolis since yesterday transporting 2,000 marines, more than 1,800 vehicles, four Chinook helicopters, 25 Apache helicopters, and 50 Black Hawk helicopters to the city.
