U.S. Army Garrison Poland became the Army’s newest garrison on March 21. 2023. It is the 8th Garrison in Europe, the 80th in the Army, and first US garrison in the Republic of Poland. It is the Army’s home in V Corp’s area of operations – an area that stretches from the Baltic to the Black Sea.

The process of establishing a permanent Army home in Poland began October 2022.  A memorandum of agreement between the U.S. Army Materiel Command and U.S. Army Europe and Africa transferred operational control of Area Support Group Poland from the 21st Theater Sustainment Command to Installation Management Command-Europe, the higher headquarters for all Army garrisons in Europe.

During that time the primarily logistics unit transitioned into an organization that began to resemble those we see across the boarder in Germany, Italy and Belgium. An organization dedicated to servicing and supporting Soldiers, civilians and families and one that enables the warfighter to accomplish its mission. 

Designed by America’s dedication to defending NATO’s Eastern Flank and shaped by real world events. The garrison is charged with leading 11 installations, encompassing the three military communities of Poznan, Powidz and Świętoszów.

The garrison is uniquely intertwined with its Polish partners via the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement. Signed between Warsaw and Washington on August 15, 2020, the EDCA outlined cooperation between the two nations and created a system where the government of Poland provides much of the service support for USAG Poland.

In May 2024 that scope expanded as the garrison took command and control of Army Support Activity – Black Sea and its military communities in Mihail Kogalniceanu Airbase, Romania and Novo Selo Training Area, Bulgaria - further uniting the "Army's Home on the Eastern Flank!"
