Thousands of soldiers with the 1st Cavalry Division will start returning home to Fort Hood this weekend after being deployed to Europe.
Members of the 1st Cavalry Division staff are returning from a 15-month deployment to Poznan, Poland.
In addition, soldiers with the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, are returning from a nine-month deployment to Germany, Poland and other neighboring European countries.
Both deployments were part of Operation Atlantic Resolve.
Approximately 3,700 soldiers deployed with the brigade along with hundreds of pieces of equipment in November. Some of the soldiers will start to arrive back to Fort Hood beginning Saturday.
Atlantic Resolve is a continuing combined and joint military exercise between the U.S., NATO allies, and European partners, to discourage Russian hostilities, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The brigade deployed as a regionally aligned force to support combatant commanders.
The remainder of the brigade will return in the coming weeks, Fort Hood officials said.
