    Germany Will Deploy Troops for First Time Since World War II – By Nick Mordowanec (Newsweek) / Dec 18, 2023

    A new agreement between Germany and Lithuania will lead to German troops’ first permanent foreign deployment since World War II.

    The announcement was made Monday in Lithuania, where Defense Minister Arvydas Anusauskas met with his German counterpart, Boris Pistorius, to outline a multiyear “Roadmap Action Plan” involving approximately 4,800 permanently stationed German soldiers. Both officials called the move a historical moment not just for their nations but for NATO as well.

    German troops, including those with families, will be stationed in the Lithuanian cities of Kaunas and Vilnius beginning in 2024, with most troops deployed in 2025 and 2026 and full-operation capability expected by 2027. In turn, Lithuania has committed to providing all necessary civilian and military infrastructure.
