Troops from Fort Carson, Fort Hood and Hunter AAF tapped for deployments to Europe

Soldiers from the Army’s 1st Cavalry Division and its 3rd and 4th Infantry Divisions will deploy to Europe later this year to replace other U.S.-based units deployed to the Continent….

The 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team of the 1st Cavalry Division from Fort Hood, Texas, the 4th Infantry Division Headquarters and Sustainment Brigade from Fort Carson, Colo., and the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade of the 3rd Infantry Division from Hunter Army Airfield, Ga., will all deploy in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, the service said in a series of statements. The new deployments expected in the coming months will maintain the Pentagon’s increased troop presence in Europe, where U.S. troops have been training with NATO partners – especially along the alliance’s eastern flank….

The deployments…will also maintain two armored brigade combat teams of some 4,200 soldiers each on the Continent – firepower that Europe had not seen in decades before the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry Division from Fort Stewart, Ga., deployed on almost no notice in early March….

In separate statements, leaders of each of the units set to deploy said their soldiers were properly trained and prepared to bolster NATO’s efforts to deter Russian aggression.
