This past week, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper announced that the United States would withdraw 11,800 troops from Germany, with 5.600 of those being repositioned at other locations in Europe, and the remainder being redeployed to the continental United States, but could be called to deploy to Europe on a rotational basis. To discuss these proposed changes, FPRI Research Director Dr. Aaron Stein spoke with Major Tim Ball, a FPRI National Security Fellow, and a U.S. Army Special Forces officer.
