The new NATO Response Force (NRF) was formally inaugurated at Brunssum (the
Netherlands) on 15 October 2003. The NRF is a tri-service rapid response force
with contributions of Spain, France, Germany and U.S.A. For the first time in
its history, NATO will have a combined air, land, sea and special operations
force under a single commander. The NRF colours were also presented. Purple
