The Department of the Army announced Friday the deployment of the 1st Infantry Division Combat Aviation Brigade to Europe in support of European Allies and partners.
Officials at Fort Riley say the team deploying will replace the 3rd Infantry Division Combat Aviation Brigade, as part of a regular rotation of forces to support the United States’ commitment to NATO Allies and partners. Most recently, the team deployed in early 2021, throughout Eastern Europe, in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.
“The 1st Combat Aviation Brigade has some of the Army’s best Soldiers and Aviators. We have trained diligently over the past year in preparation for our deployment,” said Col. Chad Corrigan, the 1ID CAB commander. “The Demon Brigade is more than ready to deploy to support this mission and continue to strengthen our established relationships with our European Allies and partners.”
