ISSUE: Combat brigade deploys
OUR VIEW: Those at home have a duty, too
Over the past five years, the ranks of personnel at Fort Knox has grown, at times almost imperceptibly slowly. Last year, however, brought the largest influx.
The 3rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, was part of that surge. Activated in October 2009, the brigade only last spring completed its move from Fort Hood, Texas.
