Press Release: Armored regiment to conduct training in Lithuania

Aug. 28, 2020

WIESBADEN, Germany —

The U.S. Army’s 2nd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment of the 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team from the 3rd Infantry Division will conduct small unit live-fire gunnery exercises from Sept. 3 to Oct. 20, at the Pabrade Training Area in Lithuania.  

2ABCT is in Europe as the sixth iteration of armored rotations supporting Atlantic Resolve. Lithuania is a focus area for Atlantic Resolve, and units frequently rotate through the country for training during their deployment.

This routine training exercise is not tied to any current events in the region.

Since April 2014, U.S. Army Europe has led the Department of Defense’s Atlantic Resolve land efforts by bringing units based in the U.S. to Europe for nine months at a time. Atlantic Resolve provides these rotational units with the ability to build readiness, increase interoperability and enhances the bond between ally and partner militaries through multinational training events.

The deployment of ready, combat-credible U.S. forces to Europe in support of Atlantic Resolve is evidence of the strong and unremitting U.S. commitment to NATO and Europe.
