In his speech, COL Rolak emphasized that the past year – although challenging due to the COVID-19 pandemic – had been a busy and successful one. It was marked by the Brigade personnel's active participation in a number of Allied exercises, including "Griffin Lighting 21" and "Steadfast Cobalt 21". Simultaneously, the Brigade conducted multiple internal staff trainings. At the moment, their central focus is placed on the Combat Readiness Evaluation exercise "Steadfast Jupiter 21" scheduled for autumn, which will also encompass the Corps' Headquarters.
"We are a support unit with a great potential," emphasized COL Rolak. He reminded those present that the Brigade had been constantly transforming in order to meet the demanding operational requirements of Multinational Corps Northeast. "We react to the changing circumstances by adjusting our formations' structure to the new challenges. Our soldiers develop their competence not only during training and courses but also by gaining hands-on experience at ranges and military training areas," said the Brigade Commander.
