The Army Vision released on June 6, 2018, states that near-peer threats "will increasingly challenge the United States and our allies in Europe, the Middle East, and the Indo-Pacific region." Conceivably, future conflict may consist of large-scale operations across multiple continents similar to what the world experienced during the two world wars.

Team 21 provides combat engineers, military police and medical professionals during partnership training and other operations supporting U.S. Army Europe, NATO, U.S. European Command, U.S. Africa Command and U.S. Central Command.
