By Sarah Bennett

Fort Knox will lose its only combat brigade as part of a massive restructuring within the United States Army.

The Army plans announced Tuesday include deactivation of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division by fiscal year 2017. Also known as the Duke Brigade, the 3/1 transferred to Fort Knox from Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009. About 2,300 of its 3,500 soldiers currently are deployed to Afghanistan.

The brigade’s soldiers will be transferred to other units, according to post officials. .
