Exercise DEFENDER-Europe 20 - US Army arrives in Germany

21 Feb 2020 12:08

Synopsis

Vehicles belonging to the US Army’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division arrived in Germany to take part in Exercise DEFENDER-Europe 20, having set sail from Savannah, Georgia in the United States. Exercise DEFENDER-Europe 20 is the largest deployment of US-based troops to Europe in 25 years. It shows that the US commitment to NATO and the defence of Europe remains ironclad. With participation of 16 NATO Allies, this US-led multinational exercise will make an important contribution to the readiness of NATO forces to operate together and to respond to any threat from any direction. Footage includes shots of various military vehicles disembarking from US Vehicle Carrier Endurance, as well as a timelapse shot of the Endurance’s ramp being lowered at Bremerhaven’s port dock.
