Press Release, Washington, 08 February 2021: The US Army announced today that Fort Riley’s 1st Infantry Division Combat Aviation Brigade will replace the 101st Airborne Division’s Combat Aviation Brigade in April 2021. The 1st CAB will serve as US Army Europe-Africa’s combat aviation element responsible for aviation assets of US forces deployed in support of ATLANTIC RESOLVE.

“The Demon Brigade is excited about our rotation back to Europe,” said Col. Bryan Chivers, 1st Combat Aviation Brigade commander. “We look forward to strengthening our long-standing partnership with our allies and partners, reaffirming the United States’ commitment to NATO.”

The brigade will support US Army Europe-Africa’s ATLANTIC RESOLVE, with units in several nations training alongside allies and partners to demonstrate the United States’ commitment to peace and stability in the region.

“Our soldiers are well-trained and ready to support this mission, and our European partners,” said Chivers.

The majority of equipment and personnel will be stationed in Germany, with a forward presence in Latvia, Romania and Poland.
