The US Army has established its first permanent garrison on NATO’s eastern flank at Camp Kosciuszko in Poland.
The US Army has officially opened its first permanent military garrison on NATO’s “eastern flank” in a ceremony on Tuesday.
Stretching from the Baltics to the Black Sea, the eastern portion of the North Atlantic bloc is made up of eight nations – all former members of the USSR or Warsaw Pact. The US Army’s V Corps will now have a lasting presence at Camp Kosciuszko in Poland.
The V Corps’ commanding general, Lt. Gen. John Kolasheski, explained the garrison showed that Washington is deepening its military commitments in Eastern Europe. “The relationship of the US and Poland serves as an example of the deepening ties throughout the alliance,” he said, adding “today’s activation ceremony is a tangible reminder of the growth in our relationship.”
Japan is in the midst of a significant missile development and procurement program as a part of its ‘counterstrike’ doctrine against rising challenges from China and North Korea.
