Army Europe commander travels to Poland, meets with MNC-Northeast
SZCZECIN, Poland: Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commander, Army Europe, arrived in Poland today to meet with Multi-National Corps-Northeast commander, Maj. Gen. Boguslaw Samol, and the headquarters staff.
The MNC-NE framework nations of Denmark, Germany and Poland recognize the need to change the unit’s mission to adapt to the changing threat in Europe and shift focus on Article 5 protections.
Army Europe is committed to helping MNC-Northeast — be it communications, intelligence, joint fires and effects — as they prepare for exercise Anakonda 16 next year.
