Lines of Effort


USAREUR prepares for future contingencies while routinely supporting ongoing operations for multiple functional and geographic Combatant Commands. USAREUR uses a building block approach to plan, train and execute Unified Land Operations. This approach includes: developing supporting plans to Combatant Command contingency and crisis action plans, conducting individual Soldier and Leader development, squad through brigade collective training, live-fire qualifications and large-scale joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational (JIIM) exercises. USAREUR retains the capability to deploy its Contingency Command Post (CCP) to conduct direct mission command for USEUCOM emerging requirements.
