U.S. Army is reportedly seeking new bases in Europe

The U.S. Army is reportedly considering new locations to base more soldiers in Europe.

A team from U.S. Army Europe scouted two facilities in northern Germany, according to Stars and Stripes. German officials said the Army told them it was considering putting as many as 4,000 soldiers there.

"At this time no decisions have been made; we are engaged in prudent planning only," said USAREUR said in a statement to Stars and Stripes

The Army has been steadily downsizing in Europe since the Cold War ended, but after Russia's recent intervention in Ukraine, Pentagon officials are reviewing Europe's force structure.  

"Anything we do will involve consultation with host nation(s) [and] allies," USAREUR said.
