April 13, 2023

HOHENFELS, Germany —

The U.S. Army, along with Allies and Partners, will conduct Combined Resolve 18 from April 21 to May 23, 2023, at the Joint Multinational Readiness Center near Hohenfels, Germany.

Combined Resolve is a recurring exercise designed to prepare a U.S. Armored Brigade Combat Team in support of NATO deterrence initiatives such as bolstering readiness, responsiveness, and reinforcement.

The 2nd Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, from Fort Hood, Texas, will lead Combined Resolve 18 as the primary training audience and the 16th Mechanized Division from the Polish Armed Forces will be the higher command.

More than 4,000 participants from the U.S. and Allied and Partner nations are scheduled to participate in the exercise. Expected participants are: Azerbaijan, Albania, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Italy, Georgia, Lithuania, Moldova, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.

To support this exercise, military vehicles will also use public roads to convoy as part of the exercise during both daylight and evening hours. Due to their size and weight, these vehicles will move slowly and have limited visibility. Drivers are advised to use caution when driving near military convoys.
