Latest Atlantic Resolve armored rotation begins arriving this week

Beginning this week, the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry
Division, from Fort Hood, Texas, arrives in Europe in support of Atlantic

Soldiers will fly into military and commercial airports in Germany, Poland
and Romania, while equipment will arrive via ship to the Port of Antwerp,
Belgium. U.S. Army Europe appreciates the extensive support each of these
nations will provide in the reception, staging and onward movement of forces
and equipment.

Personnel arriving for Atlantic Resolve take many actions to reduce the risk
of spreading COVID-19. Before departing the U.S., Soldiers will conduct
pre-deployment Restriction of Movement and COVID testing. While traveling,
all Soldiers will wear masks and follow strict hygiene measures. Once in
Europe, Soldiers will again quarantine and test before travelling throughout
the continent. The protection of our Soldiers and the surrounding
communities is our top priority.

As the seventh armored rotation in support of Atlantic Resolve, 1/1CD will
conduct bilateral, multinational training events with more than a dozen NATO
allies and partner nations. These exercises build readiness, enhance
interoperability and strengthen relationships between U.S. forces and our
allies and partners across the theater.

„The Ironhorse Brigade is honored to deploy in support of Atlantic Resolve
as a Regionally Allocated Force in Europe. It is a great privilege to aid in
the preservation of peace by showcasing our Army’s ability to project
readiness across the globe,“ said Col. Michael Schoenfeldt, 1/1CD commander.
„The opportunity to participate in combined and joint exercises with our
European partners and NATO allies in an effort to further interoperability
is something every Ironhorse trooper is looking forward to.“

1/1CD replaces 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division.
