One of the goals of the United States is to practice the transfer of large contingents of troops to Central and Eastern Europe, including Poland. It has been the largest transport operation from the USA to Europe for 25 years. Soldiers and equipment will go to France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany by air and sea. The first transport ships are due to arrive at the port of Bremerhaven on February 22. Then they will move on highways and trains towards Poland and the Baltic States. The deputy commander of the US Army in Europe, General Andrew Rohling announced that the exercises are a signal that the Americans are ready and able to fulfill their obligations to NATO partners.
