Headquartered in Wiesbaden, Germany, U.S. Army Europe’s ready, lethal and combat-credible forces are strategically positioned across our 51-country area of responsibility to deter aggression and reassure our allies and partners of the U.S. commitment to peace and stability in Europe.
There are approximately 38,000 U.S. Army Soldiers, 11,000 Department of the Army civilians and 13,000 local nationals assigned and deployed throughout Europe. U.S. Army Europe’s permanent forces include maneuver units such as the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, 41st Fires Brigade and the 173rd Airborne Brigade. Operational and theater enablers such as the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, 7th Army Training Command, 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, 2nd Theater Signal Brigade, 66th Military Intelligence Brigade, the U.S. Army NATO Brigade, Installation Management Command-Europe and Regional Health Command-Europe provide essential skills and services that enable our entire force.
Additionally, funded by the U.S. European Defense Initiative, nine-month armored, aviation and logistical rotations in support of Atlantic Resolve reinforce the U.S. commitment to the European theater. We also provide active duty, Reserve and National Guard Soldiers to support NATO missions such as the Enhanced Forward Presence in Poland, the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force and the Kosovo Force.
