ILLESHEIM, Germany —
Residents may see large formations of helicopters from the U.S. Army’s 1st Battalion, 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), as they train around Stefanovikeio, Greece, over the next several months.
The AH-64E Apaches and assorted Black Hawk helicopters are in Europe for a nine-month rotation in support of Atlantic Resolve. The 101st CAB is in Greece to train with ally and partner nations to increase readiness and strengthen military relations.
We value our relationship with Greece, and all our European allies and partners, and take voluntary steps to be good neighbors while maintaining our combat effectiveness.
The 101st CAB adheres to standard noise abatement procedures.
We are committed to our Soldiers’ and neighbors’ health and continually adapt to the evolving COVID-19 environment to ensure we remain mission-focused and ready to support our allies and partners.
COVID-19 precautions comply with U.S. Army and host nation medical authorities, and include increased sanitation measures, periodic testing and wearing masks where social distancing cannot be maintained.
Furthermore, Soldiers traveling from high-risk COVID-19 areas are required to quarantine for a period of two weeks as the protection of our Soldiers and the surrounding community is our top priority.
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.
There are three types of Atlantic Resolve rotations – armored, aviation and sustainment task force. For more information on the specific units currently deployed as part of Atlantic Resolve, visit www.eur.army.mil/AtlanticResolve.
