Swift Response 16

Paratroopers with the 1st Brigade Combat Team/82nd Airborne Division descend into the Hohenfels training area near the mock town called Ravensdorf. The mulinational airborne operation was part of Exercise Swift Response at Hohenfels, Germany, June 15, 2016. Exercise Swift Response is one of the premier military crisis response training events for multinational airborne forces in the world. Their exercise is designed to enhance the readiness of the combat core of the U.S. Global Response Force - currently the 82nd Airborne Division's 1st Brigade Combat Team - to conduct rapid response, joint forcible entry and follow-on operations alongside allied high-readiness forces in Europe. Swift Response 16 includes more than 5,000 Soldiers and Airmen from Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the United States and takes place in Poland and Germany, May 27-June 26, 2016.
