WIESBADEN, Germany: Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Daniel B. Allyn recently visited U.S. Army Europe headquarters and received several briefings there.
Allyn received updates from commanders throughout Army Europe’s theater of operations on topics ranging from Operation Atlantic Resolve to ongoing training missions with NATO allies and partner nations.
“Training with our partners and the leader development that is happening across the multi-national forces is exactly what makes our Army great,” Allyn said. “It enables us to not only be Army Strong but to also exemplify and demonstrate Strong Europe.”
Allyn also praised the job Army Europe Soldiers are performing with their counterparts from other nations to ensure security and stability there.
“The missions that our young commanders, sergeants major and first sergeants are performing are exactly the types of missions that they’ve been trained for,” Allyn said. “They’re having effects well beyond the tactical and operational environment; they’re truly having strategic effects. It’s an exciting time to be a Soldier in Army Europe.”
