Today, it’s the Frogman Corps that has been deployed to hotspots around the world to tackle, among other things, piracy in the Mediterranean, the Middle East, Africa and the Indian Ocean.

The Frogman’s association, Conventus Ranae, and A. H. Riise support the Anders Lassen Foundation – an association that awards annual scholarships to military personnel and individuals who have made a special contribution to the kingdom of Denmark.
