FORT STEWART, Ga. (AP) - The Army is sending about 3,500 soldiers based in Georgia to Europe for the second time this year.

Commanders at Fort Stewart said Wednesday troops from the 1st Brigade of the 3rd Infantry Division will deploy across the Atlantic Ocean later this month.

Roughly 1,500 of the Georgia soldiers will serve a three-month rotation as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, launched last year to demonstrate American commitment to stability in Europe. They will be sent to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary.

The rest of the troops will head to Spain and Germany for military exercises with NATO partners.

The 1st Brigade from Fort Stewart served its first three-month European rotation earlier this year, beginning in March.
