A company of 150 soldiers from the US Army’s 173rd Airborne Brigade based in Italy will arrive in Poland on Wednesday and roughly 450 troops are due in Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia in coming days as part of a new series of exercises “scheduled to take place for the next few months and beyond,” spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told a news conference.
