The Pentagon announced a reorganization of the Army yesterday that will result in a net loss of 1,500-2,000 soldiers from Fort Drum. In announcing the loss of the 3rd Brigade Combat team, Fort Drum Commander Major General Stephen Townsend said he doesn’t expect the overall reduction to have a significant impact at the base and he expects additional maneuver battalions to be assigned to the remaining brigades.
The 3rd brigade will be inactivated by 2017 and its remaining troops will be absorbed into the 1st and 2nd Brigades. Known as the Spartans, the 3rd Brigade was activated at Fort Drum in September 2004. Since then, the Spartans have deployed three times to Afghanistan. Pentagon officials said that this loss is not related to sequestration.
