Subject: A Combined NATO expeditionary force

With much talk about underperforming NATO allies. Which I believe is partly due to the inability of the smaller nations to provide specialist troops and logistics. I believe it would be a great idea to have a combined force of NATO troops that could sent on NATO sponsored deployments. How this would work, is open to question, my own idea is that certainly smaller NATO forces would rotate troops through these units, perhaps in the same way that many nations have their own Teritorial Army units (volunteer, part time units), or perhaps just on rotation. So that each country would supply a set number of troops who would go through specialist training before being sent on a deployment, after which they would return to their home countries ( and could help train their fellow soldiers on their experiences).
