U.S. European Command began Exercise Austere Challenge 2015 this week, a large-scale defense exercise that consists of computer-based command post simulations.The scenarios selected for Exercise Austere Challenge are designed to train our forces to face any situation.

The exercise is aimed at training and preparing USEUCOM and component command headquarters staffs to plan for, and respond to crises. The exercise occurs at multiple locations throughout the USEUCOM area of operations, specifically in Germany and the U.K. It's a part of a regularly-occuring exercise series which started a few decades ago.

Training events such as Austere Challenge 15 are vital to ensuring that the men and women of USEUCOM are postured as America's forward presence for the 21st century, postured alongside our proven, indispensable European allies and partners to ensure regional stability.
