Five hundred soldiers of the US armored forces, transferred to Europe as part of the Emergency Deployment Readiness exercise, will practice at the training ground in Drawsko Pomorskie, the Ministry of National Defense reported on July 10.
From July 14 to August 23 this year, an American armored unit transferred to our continent will be training in Europe. According to the Ministry of Defense, a strategic transfer led by the US Department of Defense is to test the ability of the US army to react quickly and deploy its forces anywhere in the world. The transfer of the American battalion is to test the readiness to shift troops across the Atlantic as part of the allied assistance to European countries. “Training US troops at the Polish training ground in Drawsko Pomorskie is another opportunity to strengthen cooperation on a tactical level between US and Polish soldiers,” the ministry noted. The Ministry of National Defense stressed that because of the epidemic, all necessary precautions will be taken to ensure protection against coronavirus for participating soldiers and the local community.
