ATLANTIC RESOLVE Mission: Since April 2014, US Army Europe has led the Department of Defense’s ATLANTIC RESOLVE land efforts by bringing units based in the US 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 – Armoured, Aviation and Sustainment Task Force.
- These rotations are overseen by the 1st Cavalry Division (Forward), a regionally aligned headquarters based in Poznan, Poland.
- There are approximately 6,000 Soldiers participating in ATLANTIC RESOLVE at any given time, conducting operations and exercises across 17 countries.
- These deployments of ready, combat-credible US forces to Europe in support of ATLANTIC RESOLVE is evidence of the strong and unremitting US commitment to NATO and Europe.
