KILKIS, Greece—Soldiers from 5th Battalion, 101st Aviation Regiment, “Eagle Assault,” and Hellenic Army’s 596th Airmobile Battalion, conducted air movement and air assault training as part of Pegasus 21, Jan.15-20.

‘Pegasus 21’ focused on interoperability with our Greek allies through planning and conduct of U.S. air assault operations.

“Planning for Pegasus began in October of 2020,” said Capt. Zachary Blevins, operations officer, Task Force Eagle Assault, 5th Battalion, 101st Aviation Regiment. “This operation is an integral part to Atlantic Resolve in order to reassure NATO allies and partners of our enduring commitment to Europe.”

The exercise began with an air assault training mission which included three U.S. UH-60 Black Hawks, two U.S. HH-60 Black Hawks, Greek UH-1 Hueys and GreekAH-64D Apaches.

“Greek and U.S. forces worked together to create a complex scenario and enhance the overall interoperability of Greek and U.S. forces.” Blevins said.

Conducting realistic exercises across Europe is a priority for Atlantic Resolve units. Pegasus explored many different aspects of air support, including medical evacuation operations.
