The website of the Stars-Stripes Banner recently reported that the U.S. Army announced that it had merged the headquarters responsible for military operations in Europe and Africa to form a new U.S. Army in Europe and Africa.
The U.S. Army in Europe and Africa will be headed by a four-star headquarters, General Christopher Cavoli, who has been responsible for leading the U.S. Army in Europe since 2018.
A U.S. Army spokesman said that soldiers will not leave their current positions after the reorganization. At the same time, it is confirmed that the soldiers assigned to the former U.S. Army’s African forces will also remain in Vicenza, Italy, where the original headquarters is located. The former U.S. Army Forces in Africa was renamed “Southern European Task Force-African Legion” and was commanded by the United States Army in Europe and Africa.
The headquarters of the U.S. Army in Europe and Africa will be located in Wiesbaden, Germany, which is the former U.S. Army’s headquarters in Europe.
According to the U.S. Army, Major General Andy Rowling, the former commander of the U.S. Forces in Africa, will now serve as the deputy commander of the U.S. Army in Europe and Africa for Africa, and also command the “Southern European Task Force-African Legion”.

In a statement announcing the merger, U.S. Army officials said that the merger of the two headquarters was to improve the operational efficiency of the interrelated theaters of Europe and Africa.
U.S. Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy said, “This integration strengthens global and regional combat readiness capabilities and is in line with the national defense strategy. The new system will improve command and control efficiency, flexibility and the ability to carry out large-scale, joint and multi-domain operations.”
At the same time, the relaunched Fifth Army of the U.S. Army also arrived in Poland on the 20th.
In Europe, it is reported that the new U.S. Army Command in Europe and Africa will focus on high-level planning and operations, while the Fifth Army will be responsible for the training operations of rotating troops and cooperate with allies, largely to “response to Russia’s threat in the region”.
