WIESBADEN, Germany —

Exercise Swift Response 19 is an annual U.S. Army Europe-led multinational airborne exercise in Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania from June 13-25.

This exercise will feature high-readiness airborne forces, known as the Global Response Force, from eight NATO nations - Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom and United States. Activities include intermediate staging base operations, multiple airborne operations and several air assault operations.

Swift Response provides a vital joint training opportunity that allows command and control of complex operations from dispersed locations. The participating forces must work together to bring the full weight of the joint, multination force to bear - wherever and whenever needed.

Participation in multinational exercises increases readiness, enhances our professional relationships and improves overall coordination with allies and partners during times of crisis.
