FORT HOOD, Texas, Dec. 16, 2004 – The 4th Infantry Division became the Army's newest modular division today during a ceremony at Cameron Parade Field here.
The division reconfigured its three maneuver brigades and stood up the 4th Brigade Combat Team.
In the modular design, combat support and combat service support functions, normally found at division level, have been pushed down to the four brigades to create independently deployable formations.
The combat power of the brigade will come primarily from Abrams tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles and 155mm Paladin Howitzers.
The subordinate units organized within the 4th Brigade Combat Team include: 3rd Battalion, 67th Armor; 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry; 8th Squadron, 10th Cavalry; and 2nd Battalion, 77th Field Artillery.
