Knights Pride: Deeds not Words

 

The 16th Sustainment Brigade is the only European-based sustainment brigade and provides a full range of sustainment support to U.S. Army Europe units. The Knight's Brigade is comprised of Soldiers, Civilians, and Local Nationals serving throughout Europe. We provide strategic, operational, and tactical-level sustainment support to organizations throughout the U.S. European Command and on order U.S. Africa Command area of operations, including USAREUR units and those deployed in support of exercises and operations.  

As the U.S. Army's largest forward deployed logistics command, we have a diverse, complex, and exciting mission to provide support in peacetime, and during contingency operations contributing to the Global War on Terrorism.  Your assignment to the 16th SB includes a warm welcome into your local community which is dependent on which unit you are assigned to within the Brigade.  We have personnel located in Kaiserslautern, Baumholder, and Grafenwoehr in Germany as well as Vicenza in Italy.  

 

You can look forward to a challenging and rewarding assignment, while simultaneously enjoying the sights and sounds of Europe.  While we work hard, we are committed to providing the best possible environment for our Soldiers and their Families.
