WHO ARE THE SCREAMING EAGLES
The 101st Division of the US Army has approximately 4,700 troops stationed. She claims she is “ready to defend every inch of NATO soil.” The troops started arriving in Romania in June and have now started conducting exercises in the area together with the Romanian troops. The division’s deputy commander is Brigadier General John Lubas who told CBS: “We bring a unique capability, from our aerial assault capability. We are a light infantry force, but once again we bring that mobility with us, for our planes and air assaults. “
The paratrooper division is famous for its exploits in major battles such as the Vietnam War and during the Battle of the Bulge, Operation Overlord and Operation Market Garden during World War II. Division exercises are organized as a deterrent, but also to prepare for a possible, albeit unlikely, attack.
