2nd Stryker Brigade History

 

The 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division was first organized in October 1920 in the Regular Army at Camp Travis, Texas, as Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 4th Infantry Brigade, and assigned to the 2d Division. The unit was redesignated on 23 March 1925 as Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 4th Brigade and again on 24 August 1936 as Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 4th Infantry Brigade. It was disbanded on 16 October 1939 at Fort Francis E. Warren, Wyoming.

 

The Brigade was reconstituted on 25 January 1963 as Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division and activated on 15 February 1963 at Fort Benning, Georgia. From there it followed the 1st Brigade, 2d Infantry Division to the Republic of Korea in 1965, where it was stationed until 2005. Prior to its redeployment to the United States in 2005, the 2d Brigade, 2d Infantry Division was the Army's only Light/Heavy Brigade, with 2 Air Assault Battalions, the 1-503rd Infantry (Air Assault) and the 1-506th Infantry (Air Assault)

 

A DoD briefing on 17 May 2004 confirmed that elements of the 2d Brigade, 2d Infantry Division would be deploying to Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom 3, and that the 2d Brigade, 2d Infantry Division would relocate to Fort Carson, Colorado upon completion of the deployment to Iraq as part of the Operation Iraqi Freedom 2 rotation.

 

By August 2005 the unit, which had called the Republic of Korea its home for the last 50 years, relocated to Fort Carson after the deployment in Iraq. The 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division redeployed to Fort Carson, Colorado after completing the Brigade's first deployment since Viet Nam.

 

In October 2006, the new 2d Brigade Combat Team, 2d Infantry Division returned to Iraq as part of Operation Iraq Freedom VI. After the deployment the 2d Brigade Combat Team, 2d Infantry Division was subsequently inactivated in April 2008.


In July 2010, the 5th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division was inactivated and reflagged as the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division “Lancers”.
