For the first time in about 80 years


the US military's airborne 101 contingent has been deployed to Europe as tensions continue between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) military alliance and Russia


The light pedestrian unit called "Noisy Eagles" has long been trained to be deployed anywhere in the world within hours, ready and ready to enter the battle.


The division's deputy commander


  • Brigadier John Lobas, along with Colonel Edwin Matadis
  • commander of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team
  • joined a Black Hawk helicopter by CBS News
  • affiliates on an hour-long flight on the edge of



NATO territory, barely three. Miles from Romania's border with Ukraine.


Once Russian President Vladimir Putin


began his intense invasion against Ukraine in February 2022, the forces under his command began advancing north of Crimea, a Ukrainian region illegally seized by Moscow in 2014.


For more than seven months


Russian forces attempted to penetrate along the Black Sea coast in the Kherson region in an attempt to capture Mikulaev and Odessa, two important Ukrainian port cities.


The aim of all this is presumably to culminate their efforts to cut off Ukraine's access to the sea, which will undoubtedly leave the country, as well as its military forces, completely landlocked.


As such a major threat receded near NATO


  1. territory in Romania
  2. the most elite US air attack squad
  3. was deployed with huge equipment.


"We are ready to defend every inch of NATO land "


 Lubass said while speaking to CBS News. "We bring a unique capability to air attack. . We are a light infantry force, but again, we bring this mobility with us, to our aircraft and air attacks. "


Moving north along Romania's Black Sea coast


the unit eventually arrived at a forward operational site where Romanian and American forces were in the midst of a joint ground and air offensive exercise, touching away at various targets.


The purpose of

the exercises was to recreate tank rounds and artillery fire against which Ukrainian troops were fighting from Russian troops every day across the border. Approached, the exercises were a direct message to Russia, as well as to America's NATO allies, that the U.S

 military had arrived and was ready to provide assistance.


"The real meaning for me of having American troops here is as if you had allies in Normandy before any enemy was there," said Roman Major General Lolian Birdella.



The leaders of the "Blatant Eagles"


told CBS News several times that they were constantly ready to be on duty and were "ready to fight tonight."


 Although their main goal is to defend NATO territory, they have made it clear that if the fighting is going to escalate further or if there is any attack on NATO, the unit is more than ready to cross the border and enter Ukraine.
