"AN OCEAN CLOSER"
The 7th Mission Support Command is the forward presence of the Army Reserve in the European theater. With the downsizing of units and capability in Europe, the Army Reserve has become a key element in filling the gaps that develop across USAREUR and U.S. European Command, providing a pool of trained and ready forces to support overseas contingency operations.

Over the past five years, the 7th MSC has deployed 10 of its 22 units, including key personnel of the 7thMSC headquarters, which deployed to Senegal as part of Operation United Assistance.


Since 2013, the 7th MSC has supported more than 50 exercises in more than 30 countries. Expeditionary in nature, the command can rapidly deploy an immediate response capability and provide Title 10 responsibilities for European-based units as directed by USAREUR.


The core capabilities include mission command to Defense Support of Civil Authorities, civil affairs, movement control and Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear capabilities.

The 7th MSC facilitates Strong Europe through integration into Army operations in Europe and joint, combined, multinational operations in Europe and Africa. It is capable of rapidly interfacing with NATO allies and other partners in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.


Formerly known as the 7th Civil Support Command and 7th Army Reserve Command (ARCOM), the 7th MSC traces its history back to 1956 when the first Army Reserve units were established in Europe. For more than 30 years, Army Reserve Soldiers in Europe served under various structures until the7th ARCOM activated provisionally in January 1986.
