1st Armored Division, Hungarian Brigade Kick Off Delta 2001 Exercise

1st Armored Division, Hungarian Brigade Kick Off Delta 2001 Exercise

By Pvt. Benjamin Z. Etzioni, Army News Service.

Hajmasker, Hungary -- (ANS) September 4, 2001 -- Soldiers from 1st Armored Division, Wiesbaden, Germany, joined their counterparts from the Hungarian 25th Mechanized Brigade Sept. 3 to kick off a 10-day training exercise named Delta 2001.

The exercise will train 1st AD and Hungarian soldiers to work together in a variety of situations, ranging from high-intensity conflict to peacekeeping missions. The first week of the training will prepare the combined forces for the three live-fire exercises that they will participate in.

"Delta 2001 is intended to build upon what we have already gained from our two previous exercises together," said Col. David A. Lawrence, commander of the 1st AD's 4th Brigade. "This exercise was designed to stress interoperability and cooperation between the United States and Hungarian forces in an intense field environment."

According to Maj. Gen. Ferenc Gyorossy, commander of the Hungarian Land Forces, the exercise has raised a considerable amount of interest in Hungary. Nearly 5,000 spectators are expected to attend the first live-fire exercise. The Hungarian president and members of the country's Ministry of Defense will watch the second live-fire exercise. Senior NATO leaders and other dignitaries will attend the final live-fire exercise.

While the exercise will be centered around military operations, the soldiers will also get a chance to learn about the other country's traditions and ways of life during scheduled cultural exchanges and excursions.

"While we are preparing for war, this is still a time of peace," said Gyorossy. "This exercise will be a good opportunity for our soldiers to really get acquainted with each other and to build friendships."

Delta 2001 is the third exercise in which 1st AD and the Hungarians have trained together. The previous exercises were Iron Dragon 1999, which was held in Hungary and the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps exercise also known as ARRCADE FUSION, which was held in 1999 at Wildflecken, Germany. The 1st AD and the Hungarians will work together again during ARRCADE FUSION 2001 in October at Moenchengladbach, Germany.
