US involvement in security of Poland is firm - US charge d'affaires
As another rotation of the US Army, as part of the US Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) presence in Poland, began on Thursday, the US charge d'affaires in Warsaw wrote on Twitter that US commitment to the security of Poland was resolute.
"Welcome to Poland, 'Big Red One!'” Bix Aliu tweeted on Thursday.
He wrote that "US commitment to the security of Poland and the region was unwavering" and that "our soldiers serve shoulder to shoulder, and future ABCT rotations will increase their interoperability."
The US 1st Infantry Division, known as 'The Big Red One,' was the US Army's first division and has been in service for over a century, serving in Europe during the First and Second World Wars. Between 1996 and 2006, the division was based in Wurzburg, Germany.
