Two Army brigade deployments to Mideast and Europe announced

Army officials have announced two upcoming unit rotations to Europe and the Middle East. The 4th Infantry Division’s 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team from Fort Carson, Colorado, will deploy approximately 1,800 personnel this summer to Iraq to support Operation Inherent Resolve. The Stryker unit will replace the 256th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, from the Louisiana National Guard. Inherent Resolve is the named mission to defeat the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria. Major combat operations ended when ISIS lost its territorial caliphate in 2019, but the group remains active as an insurgency.
