4th Security Forces Assistance Brigade Deployment to Europe

The 4th Security Forces Assistance Brigade will deploy to Europe in support of U.S. Army Europe and Africa in fall 2021 to support and assist U.S. allied and partner nation militaries in the European theater.

4th SFAB will do this by establishing sustainable partnerships with the land forces of Georgia, Latvia, North Macedonia, Poland and Romania in October 2021, beginning with six-month rotations.

“The 4th Security Force Assistance Brigade provides specialized, experienced, and purpose-driven U.S. Army leaders who aim to increase allied and partner capabilities and interoperability in support of USAREUR-AF security cooperation objectives,” said Col. Robert G. Born, commander of 4th SFAB, Security Forces Assistance Brigade.

…Building trust through persistent presence aims to…ensure continued interoperability. 4th SFAB will train with partners and allies to deter aggression and defeat adversaries.


The U.S. Army created Security Force Assistance Brigades to provide conventional advising and assistance capabilities to allies and partners. SFABs increase the ability to perform these tasks on a large scale, by focusing on battalion and brigade sized formations….

“As the U.S. Army and Joint Forces train together and seek to outpace our adversaries, we must not outpace our allies and partners. 4th SFAB engagements provide Army-to-army relationships vital to large scale combat operations and strategic deterrence,” Born said.
