GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — U.S. Army helicopters arrived in Belgium on Friday to begin a nine-month rotation providing close-air support for units stationed in Europe.

About 2,000 soldiers with the Army’s 1st Air Cavalry Brigade brought 89 helicopters across the Atlantic to Chievres Air Base early Friday morning.

. . .

Most 1st ACB soldiers and helicopters will be based at headquarters in Illesheim, Germany, but smaller detachments will go to Latvia, Poland and Romania, where Atlantic Resolve is focusing much of its deterrent effort.

The soldiers, whose home base is Fort Hood, Texas, brought 12 CH-47 Chinooks, 38 UH-60 Black Hawks, 15 HH-60 Black Hawks for medevacs and 24 AH-64 Apaches to Europe.


Cheers
