At his daily press briefing, Defense Department Spokesperson John Kirby announced that about 8,500 U.S. troops and personnel were placed on heightened alert to deploy if needed to Eastern Europe as tensions between Russia and Ukraine continued to escalate. He reiterated that there had been no deployment order. If deployed, he said most would be assigned with NATO’S Response Force (NRF). Mr. Kirby said most of the roughly 8,500 troops would be active duty members, but that “I can’t swear to you there won’t be reservists in involved in this as well.” close
