Embassy Statement on U.S. Rotational Presence in Estonia

December 8, 2022

“As part of our ongoing commitment to our Baltic Allies, the U.S. will deploy a HIMARS platoon and an infantry company to Estonia in the coming weeks. At the Madrid Summit, President Biden committed to enhanced rotational deployments and a heel-to-toe presence in the Baltic region. These forces are part of that enhanced presence model. The near-persistent deployment of U.S. forces and capabilities to Estonia are part of our commitment to strengthening our collective defense and deterrence posture on NATO’s eastern flank.”
