Thousands more soldiers will be posted to Europe and rotating through

By Davis Winkie

Members of a KC-135 Stratotanker squadron from Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, also returned home, as have members of Germany- and Greece-based AH-64 Apache battalions and headquarters staff from the XVIII Airborne Corps at Fort Bragg.

Those who remain are continuing to train with local forces in their host countries, as well as helping facilitate the transfer of equipment to Ukraine and training Ukrainian troops outside that country.

The current line-up includes:

  • 500 solders from V Corps headquarters in Germany and Poland
  • 1,500 soldiers from the 1st Infantry Division
  • 3,400 soldiers from 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, and their support units
  • 315 soldiers from 3rd Battalion, 321st Field Artillery Regiment
  • 235 solders from the 96th Transportation Company
  • 250 soldiers from the 87th Division Sustainment Support Battalion and 8th Ordnance Company
  • 200 Marines from Marine Air Control Group 28 in Lithuania
  • Six F-16 Falcons from the 31st Fighter Wing in Romania
  • Elements of the 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, in Poland and Slovakia
  • Another 800 or so soldiers are spread around Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Slovakia
  • 22 AH-64 Apaches and accompanying personnel from 7th Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment, in Poland
  • 10 Marine Corps F/A-18s and their personnel in Poland
  • 12 F-35 Lightning IIs in Germany
  • Six Navy EA-18G Growlers in Germany
  • Six F-22 Raptors from the 90th Fighter Squadron at Royal Air Force Lakenheath, United Kingdom, preparing to head to Poland
  • The Harry S. Truman carrier strike group in 6th Fleet

That number is holding steady for now, according to the Pentagon.
