The Department of the Army announces Fort Hood's 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team will be deploying to Europe this summer.

About 3,500 troops will be supporting the Operation Atlantic Resolve mission, the same mission Fort Hood's 1st Air Cav Brigade is supporting overseas - a mission focused on deterring Russian aggression and increase security in the region.

The 1st Brigade from Central Texas will be replacing Fort Riley's 2nd Brigade from Kansas.
