The third rotation of troops from the United States Army in Europe's 173rd Airborne Infantry Brigade were seen off at a formal ceremony held at Rukla garrison last Wednesday. After nearly two months of combined combat training, it will be replaced by the 2nd Squadron, 8th Cavalry Regiment, stationed in Texas, U.S.A., that will continue the joint training with Lithuanian forces, Lithuania's Ministry of National Defence said.
