Military of Greenland
However, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) does realize the strategic value of Greenland, and may provide somewhat to its defense (the fictional book Red Storm Rising depicts such a scenario). Greenland houses American and Danish military bases: the best-known is the American Thule Air Base.
The Danish military has a dog sledge patrol called Sirius-patruljen , which is headquartered in Daneborg . Greenland also has a coastguard that inspects the Greenlandic coast and carries out search and rescue operations.
