    Meet U.S. Army Pfc. Anthony DeLaTorre, an air and missile defense crewmember from the 5th Battalion, 4th Air Defense Artillery Regiment.

    Deployed to the Central Training Area near Varpalota, Hungary, DeLaTorre provides short range air defense by scanning the skies and providing early defense engagement in his Avenger air defense system.

    “We had a lot of new faces that came out here. At the end of the day we talked to each other and had good communication,” said DeLaTorre of his team. “We definitely worked together.”

    DeLaTorre, a native of Austin, Texas, said respect is his favorite Army value.
    “It all comes down to respecting yourself first. Once you get to know yourself, respect yourself to the fullest; you understand a way to respect everyone else and work well with others.”

    DEFENDER-Europe 21 is a large-scale U.S. Army-led exercise designed to build readiness and interoperability between the U.S., NATO allies and partner militaries. This year, more than 28,000 multinational forces from 26 nations will conduct nearly simultaneous operations across more than 30 training areas in 14 countries from the Baltics to the strategically important Balkans and Black Sea Region.
