Trojan Footprint 24 isn't just about skydiving, though. This large-scale exercise, approved by U.S. European Command, is designed to strengthen cooperation and capabilities between U.S. Special Operations Command Europe and its NATO allies. It's part of Steadfast Defender, NATO's biggest military exercise since the Cold War.

Beyond Greece, the training stretches across several European nations. Green Berets have participated in low-light weapons training in Georgia, Germany, North Macedonia, Romania, and Bulgaria. Trojan Footprint 24, held every two years since 2016, involves roughly 900 U.S. service members working alongside their NATO counterparts.
