U.S. Soldiers arrive at the Podgorica, Montenegro airport Feb. 19 as part of a contingent deployed to the Balkan nation in response to the country's request for NATO assistance to provide supplies and rescue services to areas of Montenegro where people have been stranded by recent heavy snowfalls. The full U.S. contingent includes two Black Hawk helicopters and 40 aviation support troops from U.S. Army Europe's 1st Battalion, 214th Aviation, 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, and a team of Army reservists from the 7th Civil Support Command's 361st Civil Affairs Brigade who are providing command and control for the mission.
