New in 2019: Army Europe adds new units, boosts air defense, artillery
By: Todd South  

Soldiers assigned to Field Artillery Squadron, 2nd Cavalry Regiment, prepare to tow their M777A2 155mm Howitzer during U.S. Army Europe's exercise Saber Strike 18. (Staff Sgt. Ricardo Hernandez-Arocho/Army).

The new units the Army plans to add to its troops stationed in Europe are a small but crucial part of its support of allies and force projection on the continent.

That ongoing work has seen increases in rotations, a focus on improving ground vehicle lethality and protection, and reactivating units with a European battlefield focus.

U.S. Army Europe announced in September that it would add another 1,500 troops to units that would be stationed in the following areas of Germany: Grafenwohr, Ansbach, Hohenfels and Baumholder.

Currently there are about 33,000 U.S. soldiers in Germany alone.
