Representatives of the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team and 1st Combat Aviation Brigade from Fort Riley will share experiences from their recent Atlantic Resolve deployment Tuesday night during the Evenings at Ease Series at the Eisenhower Presidential Library.

Since April of 2014    , U.S. Army Europe has led the Department of Defense Atlantic Resolve land efforts by bringing units based in the U.S. to Europe for nine months at a time. Atlantic Resolve provides those rotational units with the ability to build readiness, increase interoperability and enhances the bond between ally and partner militaries through multinational training events.

Those attending the session on Tuesday evening will hear firsthand about training with allies, overcoming logistical challenges and overall deployment experience.

The Evenings at Ease program is sponsored by the Eisenhower Foundation and the Union Pacific Foundation.
