    FORT HOOD, Texas – This fall, company-sized elements of Soldiers from 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, will arrive in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Poland to begin training exercises with those nations’ troops in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.

    The 2-8 Cav units will replace the paratroopers of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, who have, since April, been participating in multinational training with U.S. allies in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.

    These land training exercises, which came at the request of the host nations, help foster interoperability through small unit and leader training and demonstrate commitment to collective defense capabilities. Elements of the brigade have conducted training missions throughout the year in Europe.
