The U.S. Army's European Rotational Force will participate in exercise Combined Resolve IX at the Grafenwoehr Training Area in southeastern Germany, Aug. 14 - 24.
The U.S. rotational force will consist of the Mission Command Element (MCE)
and 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division (3/4ID), from Fort Carson, Colorado, and the 10th Combat Aviation Brigade (10CAB), from Fort Drum New York. The MCE, 3/4 ID and 10CAB are designated as part of the Regionally Allocated Forces for U.S. European Command.
Exercise Combined Resolve IX is designed to train the Army's Regionally Allocated Forces. The goal of the exercise is to prepare forces in Europe to operate together to promote stability and security in the region.
As 7th Army Training Command's Joint Multinational Readiness Center incorporated the Skolkan scenario during Combined Resolve VII and Allied Spirit V, it worked to create a realistic training environment.
The mission readiness of the U.S. Army Europe's Regionally Allocated Force was put to the test during Combined Resolve VII's Combined Arms Live Fire Exercise at the Grafenwoehr Training Area, Aug. 16-18.
Joint terminal attack controllers (JTAC), participate in Combined Resolve V, a U.S. Army Europe exercise designed to train participants to function together in a multinational and integrated environment at the Grafenwoehr and Hohenfels Training Area.
