Announcements from the Brigade Commander, USANATO BDE

Greetings from the U.S. Army North Atlantic Treaty Organization Brigade Commander COL Karolyn I. Hooper:

CSM Escobedo and I are honored to be a part of this great team of Soldiers, civilian employees and family members in USANATO Brigade. As part of the USANATO Brigade team, you should take great pride, as we do, in the outstanding work you all do each and every day to support the mission of the Brigade, USANATO, and the US Army. We are both looking forward to working with each of you supporting you in what you do and accomplishing great things together. “Steady!”


Welcome the United States Army NATO Brigade! We are a unique and diverse organization, providing a wide range of command, control and support services to US Army Soldiers serving in thirteen nations throughout Europe and the United States. We train, equip, and support Soldiers, Civilians, and Family members who serve at 39 different NATO organizations.

This is an exciting time for our brigade as we continue to expand our scope of influence throughout our area of responsibility, strengthen alliances and build partner capabilities with the international community, and train and prepare full-spectrum, capable soldiers to deploy in support of NATO. We have two battalion and ten company headquarters supporting US Army NATO Soldiers in Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States. An assignment with US Army NATO will place you in a position of unique and considerable responsibility, serving side by side with alliance partners. I am certain that you will find a US Army NATO assignment professionally challenging and personally rewarding!
