Heritage Event: Deployment of U.S. Forces in Europe

The Heritage Foundation's Van Andel Center

Since the end of the Cold War almost thirteen years ago, the zones of instability have shifted eastward to Asia and the Middle East, where hotbeds of terrorist activity and fanaticism are emerging. Yet the United States continues to rely on a European basing structure designed to confront the old Soviet threat. The United States still maintains the bulk of its European troop presence in Germany even though countries in Eastern and Southern Europe may be more appropriate to the modern security environment. Join us on April 2, 2003 for a half-day conference that will discuss the political and strategic considerations of changing America's European base structure.
