About 4,000 Nato troops have been placed across Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia and has become Nato’s biggest deployment of troops since Afghanistan.
According to RT, President Duda described the deployment of US troops as a “historic moment”.
He said: “Generations of Poles have waited for this moment since the end of World War II, generations that dreamt of being part of the just, united, democratic and truly free West.”
Nato forces in Poland began their military campaign earlier this year in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia on a rotational basis.
A fleet of 300 UK military vehicles were set to be delivered to Estonia including Challenger 2, Titan and Trojan tanks and AS90 self-propelled artillery pieces.
A 450 strong German force was also sent to Lithuania to work alongside Belgian and Danish soldiers in the region.

President Trump backtracked on his criticism on Nato after branding the alliance as “obsolete”.
The billionaire targeted the organisation days before his inauguration, because it failed to stand up to the rising threat of terror.
However, during a joint press conference with Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday, Mr Trump turned on his previous comments.
He said: “I said it was obsolete. It’s no longer obsolete.
“I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change, and now they do fight terrorism.”
The US contributes around 70 per cent of Nato’s total defence spending and Mr Trump said that the alliance was still “very important” to him, but called for other members to increase contributions.
Mr Trump increased his efforts in the fight against terror after dropping the ‘Mother of All Bombs’ on an ISIS tunnel system in Afghanistan.
At least 36 ISIS fighters were killed in the attack with no civilians believed to have been harmed during the attack.
Speaking after the strike, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the US was taking the threat from ISIS “very seriously”.
He said: “In order to defeat the group we must deny them operational space. Which we did.”
