Press Release: Black Jack is set to return home from nine-month deployment

June 12, 2020


The 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division stationed at Fort Hood, Texas will begin to return from a nine-month rotation in Europe on June 16.

More than 3,500 Soldiers from the Black Jack Brigade deployed in support of Atlantic Resolve last October.  The unit’s seven battalions had presence in six different European countries integrating and training with multinational partners to increase readiness, lethality and interoperability. 

The deployment of ready, combat-credible U.S. forces to Europe in support of the Atlantic Resolve mission is evidence of the strong and unremitting U.S. commitment to NATO and Europe. Through bi-lateral, joint, and multinational training, Atlantic Resolve builds readiness, increases interoperability, and enhances the bond between ally and partner military.
