U.S. Unit’s Africa Deployment Will Test New Regional Concept

“Come spring, U.S. soldiers from the Army’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, will begin deploying to parts of Africa under a pilot test with U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM).

Based at Fort Riley, Kan., the ‘Dagger Brigade’ will be the first regionally aligned brigade the Army will field as part of a new initiative to keep nondeploying units engaged globally now that rotations to Iraq have ended, deployments to Afghanistan are winding down and the service is looking for ways to stay globally engaged.”
