Army announces new deployments for 5,700 soldiers | ArmyTimes

More than 5,700 soldiers will deploy this summer and fall, with some going to Europe and others to Afghanistan, the Army announced Thursday.

About 4,000 of those soldiers — from the 1st Infantry Division’s 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team — will deploy this fall to Europe in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.

The Fort Riley, Kansas-based brigade will be the second armored BCT to deploy to Europe as part of the Army’s new nine-month rotations there. They will replace soldiers from 3rd BCT, 4th Infantry Division, which deployed to Europe early this year.
