U.S. forces are currently transporting tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and other equipment from Germany to Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary for a series of multinational exercises called Saber Guardian 17. Saber Guardian 2017 is a multinational military exercise involving approximately 25,000 military personnel from over 20 participating nations. The Black Sea Region exercises for 2017 include numerous U.S., ally, and partner national exercises, with SG17 being the largest. Each is separate and distinct, however many of them contribute to or enable SG17 in various ways. As a whole, these exercises demonstrate the United States and NATO’s superior joint and combined capabilities and highlight our collective will to defend against regional aggression.

“I’m really excited to be going to Romania,” said Sgt. 1st Class Alexander Graybill, a platoon sergeant for Company C, 588th Brigade Engineer Battalion, 3/4 ABCT. “We just completed Combined Resolve VIII. Going to Romania with a new mission will allow us to apply the lessons learned to Saber Guardian. I feel that it will allow us to have more time to polish up on areas and prepare to go to Combined Resolve IX back in Germany later this summer.”
