    7th Mission Support Command

    Meet Spc. Emilio Sanchez, a Spanish native who naturalized into the United States.

    Sanchez serves as a 42 A, human resource specialist with the 510th Regional Support Group, 7th Mission Support Command - America's Army Reserve in Europe. In addition to his role in the S-1 shop, Sanchez assisted his unit by translating between U.S. Soldiers and their Spanish Allies, at San Gregorio Training Area, Zaragoza, Spain, in support of exercise Swift Response and DEFENDER-23.   

    The 510th Regional Support Group's mission is to provide base support operations for up to 6000 supported Soldiers and their equipment, across the European Theater. Currently, the 510th manages day-to-day instillation operations for roughly 1,000 U.S., Ally and partner forces, participating in exercise Swift Response 23. Exercises like this solidify relationships and build on time-tested alliances by improving interoperability and strengthening already established relationships with Allied and partnered nations.    

    DEFENDER 23 is a U.S. Army Europe and Africa led exercise focused on the strategic deployment of continental United States-based forces, employment of Army Prepositioned Stocks, and interoperability with Allies and partners. Taking place from 22 April to 23 June, DEFENDER 23 demonstrates USAREUR-AF’s ability to aggregate U.S.-based combat power quickly in Eastern Europe, increase lethality of the NATO Alliance through long-distance fires, build unit readiness in a complex joint, multi-national environment, and leverage host nation capabilities to increase USAREUR-AF’s operational reach. DEFENDER 23 includes more than 7,000 U.S. and 17,000 multi-national service members from more than 20 nations who will participate including, but not limited to: Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States.
