Army sergeant with ties to NH deployed overseas
Army Sgt. Steven M. Sutherland has deployed overseas in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, a demonstration of U.S. commitment to the security of NATO allies on air, land and at sea.
The Army says the actions of Atlantic Resolve are designed "to reassure NATO allies and partners of America's dedication to enduring peace and stability in the region in light of the Russian intervention in Ukraine."
Since April 2014, Army Europe has led the efforts of land forces by conducting multinational training and security cooperation activities with allies and partners in eastern Europe. These activities are taking place in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary.
Sutherland graduated in 2008 from North Atlantic Regional High School while living in Hillsborough.
