He is known to revel in the military trappings of his job. But a flyover of military aircraft at the White House is exceedingly rare.

Senior administration officials refused on a briefing call to get into details of the troop announcement on Tuesday, but Polish officials have said this week that the announcement is related to increasing the levels of permanent US troops stationed in Poland.

A US defense official said the two leaders will sign a joint political declaration with a broad-strokes military component that calls for about 1,000 additional US troops to go to Poland on a rotational basis. Many of the troops will rotate to other exercise and training locations in Europe.

Currently there are around 4,000 US troops in Poland on a rotational basis.

The senior administration officials said the declaration would significantly enhance US-Poland military-to-military relationships. The officials said it would be in compliance with the NATO-Russia Founding Act, which guides relations between NATO and Russia.
