FORT HOOD, Texas — The III Armored Corps and Fort Hood continues to maintain a heightened level of readiness, with Soldiers training in the field and across the country.

“We routinely conduct readiness activities to ensure we are prepared to deploy, if ordered to do so.  No deployment order has been given,” said Col. Wayne Marotto, III Armored Corps Director of Public Affairs & Spokesman. “The training and readiness activities we are conducting are precautionary actions to provide our National Command Authority with a variety of options should additional forces be needed in Europe to assure our NATO and European allies and deter Russian aggression.”
