Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defense Mariusz Blaszak participates in the naming ceremony for the new US military facility in Poznan.
The forward command of the US 5th Corps of Ground Forces will be called “CAMP KOŚCIUSZKO”. Relations between Poland and the United States today are deep and cordial. Also, history has their provenance and justification. Tadeusz Kościuszko is our common great hero who fought for the freedom of both Poland and America. – Minister Blaszczak said. Our mission is to strengthen relations by building interoperability between our armed forces, which is why we value the presence of American troops on Polish soil so much. “We are very appreciative of the forward elements of the command of the US forces of the V Corps in Poland,” he said. The transition from rotational presence to permanent presence of command elements is critical for us, and for this I would like to thank our allies – added.
As of November 2020, the forward command of the US 5th Army Corps (V Corps Headquarters Fwd) in Poland is operating in Poznan. It is the only system of command of this scale used in Europe. Its primary mission is to coordinate the operations and oversight of US ground forces deployed in Europe, operational planning, and coordination and coordination of US forces with the forces of other NATO countries. This means that US ground forces stationed across Europe are commanded from Poland.
During the NATO summit in Madrid at the end of June, US President Joe Biden announced that the headquarters of the US 5th Army would be moved to Poland. It is the highest tactical command of the US military. For the first time, US troops will be permanently stationed in Poland.
